Union Congregational Church

This week’s Where’s Zat? photo was identified by Janet Dunsky, who lives in Magnolia and attended this church for years. The sign says “Established 1887”.

I found this old photo on the Internet, dated 1920’s or 1930’s.

Jan wins a $20 gift certificate from Gloucester Music. Congratulations! And thanks to Susan Emerson for the prize donation.

 Help Governor Patrick Choose

In a successor to the 50 States Quarters Program, the U.S. Mint, in a  nationwide program, has asked Governor Patrick to select one preferred and three alternate Massachusetts national sites to be featured on the reverse of a quarter. Beginning in 2010, the Mint will release five new quarter designs annually based on the order in which the selected sites gained federal designation. Governor Patrick is calling on the people of Massachusetts to help with this decision.

“Our Commonwealth has many great parks and historically significant sites,” said Governor Patrick. “It will be fun to let everybody help choose the one to submit.”

One of the sites included is Gloucester’s famous Man at the Wheel Statue created by sculptor and photographer Leonard Craske. This statue not only commemorates Gloucester’s maritime heritage but also its distinguished arts history. Please visit the voting site and place a vote for Gloucester!

Go to:  America’s Beautiful National Parks Quarter

Scroll down the list to Essex County and click next to Gloucester Fisherman’s Memorial, Gloucester.

You can vote as often as you like but all voting must be done by 5:00 p.m. February 26, 2009.

Thank you.
