Hey Joey,

We will be hosting a Beer Dinner on Sunday, May 6th @ 6:30.  5 food courses prepared by our Head Chef Fernando DeSouza, paired with 5 beers from our Head Brewer Dylan L’AbbeLindquist.  Also, Mr. Nathan Seavey & Friends will be providing some background jazz music during the dinner.  Tickets are $50/pp or $45 if your a Mug Club Member.  This will be a private event, closed to the public at 5, and I’m sure everyone who attends will see a different side of what we do here at the brewery!  Thanks for the post!

Announcing Memories For Hope – When a family is faced with a life-threatening illness, everything changes. One diagnosis can completely turn life upside down. Suddenly the littlest moments become so much more precious. I want to help families in those difficult times by preserving some of those precious memories for them. With my new Memories for Hope program, Oasis Rockport will help families experiencing life-altering disease with no charge portrait sessions. Contact for details.

Gloucester Public Schools Fuller School Building Survey

Click this link

The Gloucester Public School District has a tradition of reaching out to the community for input before making major decisions. Once again, the school district is reaching out for your help.
The Gloucester School Committee is considering what to do with the Fuller School site.  This building is presently underused.  It currently houses the preschool program, and the transportation and administrative offices.  The rest of the building is unoccupied. The question the School Committee must answer is whether the building is needed by the school district for any future educational use.  If the building is declared surplus, the School Committee would be reaffirming its commitment to local, smaller elementary schools and the city will decide its future use.
This survey is part of the larger citywide discussion about what should be done with the Fuller School Site.  The School Committee is reaching out to all members of the community so that everyone has an opportunity to express their views.  Input generated from this survey will be used, along with input from other sources, to help the School Committee make an informed decision.

Brought to you by the Rocky Neck Art Colony…..
ROCKY NECK (former Christian Science Church, 6 Wonson St.).  Come join
us for a fun afternoon of food, music, great company, info about the
building’s acquisition and plans, and help to paint the wainscotting
in the main hall – hope to see you there!
