You are not going to believe how much some of these buoys sold for.
Watch the video by clicking the picture below to see how much.
Forgive the terrible picture quality. I did a horrible job shooting the pictures as I was distracted all night trying to figure out how I was going to steal away the lobster buoy with the lobster on it (more on that later).
But this was the scene with each child holding up their hand painted buoy and Senator Tarr auctioning them off. I don’t know how he held his voice up for that long but he did a remarkable job. Georgie is the daughter of good eggs Dave and Erika Hansen. Erika was sitting in front of Janice Lufkin Shea and I and facing the stage. When the bidding started she had no idea that she was bidding against Janice and I who were standing right behind her while she was facing the stage. The bidding quickly escalated and when all was said and done Janice won out with an $85 bid.
The whole night was a huge success and I have to believe that they didn’t anticipate how many people showed up and actively bid. When there is a great cause our community steps up and this was certainly a great cause.
Classy broad that Janice is she gave the buoy that she had just won back to Erika.

Last night our group of crazies got together for more Block party planning. Within the inner sanctum of the Cape Ann Business Incubator Lee Bolton runs his operation. It looked like a scene right out of the eighties movie War Games with Matthew Broderick and Alley Sheedy.
Lee is helping us with the huge slide show and video presentation for the Block Party but it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if we find out that this guy is really plotting to take over the world from his command center deep in the bowels of the Cape Ann Business Incubator.
