The Orlando and Asaro Families Say Thank You After Emotional Fisherman’s Memorial Service

We would like to extend a thank you to the Fishermen’s Memorial Service Committee members and all who attended for such a beautiful event at the Stacey Boulevard on Saturday, August 28th. Our family is grateful for the opportunity to convey with the community our history and sorrow for the loss of the ill fated Inca fishing vessel in 1944. Through sharing our story we found how our personal thread is so tightly woven into a preverbal quilt fabricated to comfort and protect the traditions so lovingly cherished by families of this city of fishermen.

Sincerely,

The Orlando and Asaro Families

3 Page St Gloucester On Trail Of Thai Royalty Plaque In Cambridge

Hi  Joey —

Folks visiting Harvard Square can now see a beautiful plaque on the monument, listing 3 Page Street, Gloucester on the Trail of Thai Royalty. Just 1 year ago, we held a local dedication at City Hall in Gloucester.  Completing the Trail has been a labor of love by Thais and Americans over many years. Here is a link to video of the Aug. 15th, 2010 statewide Trail dedication (I was MC) and a cultural event that followed on the grounds of the Longfellow National Museum in Cambridge that afternoon.  Enjoy!

Thanks for sharing that with us Amy

Gloucester Zen Niles Beach 9/1/10

So Blessed.  So Blessed Are We To Have This.

Who doesn’t feel stressed?  Do yourself a favor.  Grab a beach chair and go to Niles Beach alone at 7:30AM with a  cup of coffee and a muffin.  Put that beach chair right at the water’s edge and just let the peace of the sound of the gentle waves lapping at the shore melt away a couple of layers of that stress you are holding in your neck and shoulders.

Meet Cape Pond Ice’s "Coolest" Millionaire!

We all know that Cape Pond Ice’s Coolest Guys & Gals are Winners…..Well, Brandon Ward proved us right!

Brandon Ward has worked for Cape Pond Ice for over a year now.  He is currently managing our Bresnahan Ice Lawrence branch.  While out on his route delivering our "Pure Yankee Cold" he stop at Tony’s Convenience to fill them up.  They didn’t need ice…  so while he was there he bought a bottle of water, sunflower seeds and a $5.00 scratch ticket.  He finished up his route and once back at the shop he scratched his ticket.  To his surprise he won a $1 million grand prize on the Jumbo Bucks game!

Brandon is pictured here with his fiancee Jennifer Bompane, with his first of 20 annuity checks for $50,000.00 before taxes.    

Today Brandon is still working for Cape Pond Ice!

Everyone here at Cape Pond Ice could not be happier for him…..

CONGRATULATIONS BRANDON FROM THE "COOLEST GUYS AROUND!"
