There are so many good people here on Cape Ann. A big happy family!
To add to Ed’s thank you’s for the help on the Lobster Tree, I’ll add mine to Laurie Lufkin and her crew of people from Essex and Gloucester who made the GMG Cookie Contest a great success. She worked tenaciously to gather the prizes, choose the judges, prepare the score sheets and run the whole show. And SMILING through it all! Thanks also go out to all the prize donors including those that I was able to get – Friendly’s Restaurant and Cape Ann Lanes. A huge thank to Jim Montanginio and his daughter Marcy for donating the space at Brown’s Mall. All good eggs!
And from all of us at PRESENT -a big thank to the Common Crow for the yummy cheese platter on Ladies’ Night.
More huge thank you’s go out to everyone who works at PRESENT. Without the invitation from Amanda to join the artisans this year, I would have never been able to create (and sell) the calendars that have become a huge hit. I’ve been crazy working two jobs, but it’s all been worth it as I’ve met so many creative people who are as whacko as me!
