Community Stuff Thursday

Kristen Virgilio asks-

Hi Joey! A friend and I are looking for a basic photography class and we’re having some luck with community colleges and some other places out of town offering some options.  That said, with all the knowledge and experience in this field in Gloucester I was wondering if there was someone in town who taught.  I knew if there was something like this, you’d know about it.!
Thanks for any direction you can offer and thanks so much for the blog!!


Each year it is estimated that 1 million people suffer from Shingles. The risk of developing shingles increases with age and is particularly a risk for individuals who have underlying health conditions.

The Gloucester Health Department has a small amount of shingles vaccine and is offering it FREE to Gloucester residents over 60 years of age.

Interested residents should call the Public Health Nurse, Chassea Robinson, RN at (978) 282-8023.

The NSJP started a  couple years ago to help revitalize jazz on the North Shore.   Our efforts have helped to fuel a new jazz revival on the North Shore.   Last spring we put on a concert and workshop sponsored by Varian,  Gorton’s and the NSJP  at Gloucester High School.   The  auditorium was packed. Check out the show here. 

Here’s our upcoming fundraising  event.  I hope your reader come out. It will be an exciting time.

all best,  Henry


Hi Joey. Took some shots of the Gloucester Chantey Singing Group Jan. 18th at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum.
They were being videotaped as part of a possible TV documentary about Gloucester.

  • Thanks for asking…Kristen Virgilio was wondering about photo classes.

    I teach basic photography to groups and individuals.

    In the past I’ve taught summer classes at Montserrat College of Art, evenings at Boston Adult Ed, Cambridge Adult Ed, Boston’s Artists for Humanities (at-risk teens – after school program) and most recently at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum.

    Feel free to contact me and we can design a program for you!

    Thanks, Kathy
