Discover Gloucester Weekly From Linn Parisi
Fancy meeting you at the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s Lock Up fundraiser at LobstaLand yesterday!
Pilar Garro from the Beauport Sleeper-McCann house on Eastern Point (which is open for the season, btw) recommended that I get "arrested" for the truly good cause- Thanks, Pilar!
I had a great time at the event. The best part is that so many friends and family members contributed to my "bail" ahead of my being "arrested" that I didn’t have to make phone calls. Thanks to all who donated to help put a halt to this horrible disease. We raised nearly $2400!
Thanks to Corey and his crew at LobstaLand for hosting the event and feeding all the participants.
The pics attached are of me being served my warrant by Manny Simoes’ nephew, Officer Simoes; getting into the police car to be driven to the Lock Up (my first and last time in the back seat of a cruiser; yours truly behind bars; Pam Macaurelle from CruisePort making desperate calls for bail; and Joey bringing Pam a bail check. Too fun!
The last and totally unrelated picture is a UK Travel Channel TV show called "American Times" filming the star/host, Julian, eating a lobster in the rough at Roy Moore’s on Bearskin Neck- in the pouring rain on Monday. Everything we tried to do that day for their show, which was about fish & fishing, lobsters & lobstering, was derailed due to the nor’easter. Not a fish to be found in the City; too rough to go out on the water. They managed to get enough footage done, but it took us hours and we were drenched and cold at the end of the long day.
Thanks to all of the Discover Gloucester partners who tried to help during the day, and did help to get the job done.
Another TV show film crew will be here on Sunday. This one is from Italy, RAI 3- like our PBS channel 2.
This time the media FAM is about art, culture and history. Hopefully, no rain on Sunday- please?!
