Come on in and help us celebrate, along with some of our accomplished stable of astrophotographers as they each show off examples of their most recent work, including some shots they’ve been saving for just this occasion. 

We’ll see a bunch of terrific pictures, and hear the how’s and why’s as well, as each photographer explains each image, its significance, and some details of the hunt that produced it.

This will be a colorful, entertaining and elucidating night of astrophotography, science, friends, coffee and cake, and of course lots of great conversation to boot. Don’t miss it!

GAAC meets at 8:00 on the second Friday of every month at the Lanesville Community Center, 8 Vulcan Street Gloucester. There is no cost, and parking is free. For more info on the club, see our website at, or our Facebook page,, or follow us on Twitter @gaacster. All are welcome, and no prior knowledge of astronomy is needed to have a great time.

Sure is a pretty tugboat and loved seeing the Roderick McAllister in Gloucester Harbor during Schooner Festival. On my way into Cambridge to do an installation last Thursday and there it was docked in Boston Harbor, looking good from the Tobin Bridge vantage point.

Dogtown Days is a celebration of the art, history, archaeology, geology, ecology and mystery of Dogtown, from the remains of its colonial settlement to its treasures along the trails through the watershed land and glacial heaths that lie at the heart of Cape Ann. Its 3,000 acres serve as the inspiration for Saturday’s panelists: Mark Carlotto, Mary Ellen Lepionka, Ed Becker, Chris Leahy, Ted Tarr, Noel Mann, Shep Abbott and Tom Halsted. Join these Friends of Dogtown as they explore the cellars of Dogtown, the Native Americans who lived there and the many insects and birds that call the habitats of Dogtown their home.

Following the Dogtown expert panel discussion, the Friends of Dogtown invite all audience members to join them for a reception with cake and ale in the Friend Room at the Sawyer Free Library nearby.

Tuesday. October 6th. ‘Community Reiki Share’ in Manchester-by-the-Sea.

Join us in Supporting the Kangemi Charity and Children of Nairobi, Kenya. Having just returned from a sabbatical in Africa, it seems appropriate that this month’s Reiki Share is donating proceeds to an African charity.  All are welcomed to attend to enjoy a Reiki Session while supporting this worthy cause!

This month’s choice of charities was inspired by Advanced Western and Japanese Reiki Practitioner (Komyo Okuden/3rd Degree) and FOB Suzanne Sweeney, owner of Energize Body and Mind here in Gloucester. Suzanne’s mother-in-law Prafulla Ganatraa, coordinates the Kangemi Charity in Kenya, helping to feed, clothe and educate children in an impoverished area of Nairobi.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Breast Cancer is the most common cancer in American women.

The Good News

  • When detected early, breast cancer has a high survival rate.
  • You can take steps to help prevent breast cancer.

Breast Cancer Awareness – HOPE

** Talk to your doctor about your risk factors, prevention advice, and screening recommendations for early detection.**

Some Recommendations for Prevention and Early Detection from the American Cancer Association


The thought of screening mammograms, needle-guided breast biopsies, or possibility of breast cancer can be very stressful and even overwhelming for some. You are not alone! Ask your doctor about supportive therapies for stress relief and cancer treatment.

Contact me here or privately for additional information on stress relief and relaxation techniques.
