Fish ‘n’ Fiction
A new series hosted by the Phyllis A. Marine Association
Sawyer Free Library, Friend Room
Tuesday, February 23, 2010
6:00-8:00pm
Suggested Donation of $5.00 per person
 
Captain Richard Arnold will lead an informal conversation on his personal experiences fishing on board the Phyllis A., out of Gloucester harbor from 1984-2000. Please come and join us with your own stories.
 This program benefits the Phyllis A. Marine Association who mission is, “to promote the history of gillnetting in Gloucester, Massachusetts through the display and preservation of the fishing vessel Phyllis A.” All conversations will be recorded for our oral history collection.
 Additional conversations will occur on the fourth Tuesday of each month.
We offloaded the Phyllis A back when we handled fish at our dock.  The Arnold Brothers were about as classy as you get not only on the waterfront but in humanity in general.  These men are role models believe me and to have the opportunity to hear the stories as told by Richard, well let’s just say it’s something that no one who loves the fishing industry should miss.
