Where did McDonalds go?

I think it was here on Maplewood Ave. the day before yesterday...

Someone told me that they are going to rebuild, because the building was old and needed a complete renovation. Kind of startling, though, to drive down the road and see this sight instead of the nice little Micky D’s that was there so recently! Anybody know for sure if/when they will reopen? When I will be able to get my yummy McDonald’s apple pies again?

Renewal of Newell Stadium Donor Recognition & Auction Event

The Gloucester Fishermen Athletic Association is closing in on its fundraising efforts for the Renewal of Newell Stadium.  On March 24th, there will be an event at the Elks at Bass Rocks to help bring us closer to the goal line.  The live auction will be run by professional auctioneer, Walt Kolenda.  There will also be a silent auction with nearly 100 items!

  • The GFAA is extremely grateful to the Gloucester community for its generosity to date and for its acknowledgement of the importance of rebuilding the recreational facility for the benefit of its student athletes as well as for the entire community.
