Essex County Trail Association is having a surf-themed fundraiser party on September 7th in Hamilton. Both of the bands playing are local Gloucester bands – The Runaround Sound and Johnny Carwash. Dom from Cape Ann S.U.P. is helping out with decorations and promotions, and he and one of our board members, Dan Mayer, suggested that I contact you to see if you would be willing to spread the word about this event on your blog and Facebook page.
We’re really excited about this event – it should be a great night!
Here are the links to the party web page and the raffle web page:

WHAT: Each month throughout the summer, Chef Frank McClelland hosts a themed dinner at his home on Apple Street Farm to showcase the farm’s seasonal and organic produce, protein and eggs. For the month of August, Chef has designed a four-course meal inspired by the versatile tomato. Rather than farm-to-table, the Festival of Tomatoes Dinner will bring the table, and the guests, to the farm for an evening of wine, moonlight, and tomatoes.
Guests are encouraged to explore the beautiful grounds while enjoying cocktails and savory hors d’oeuvres prepared by the chefs of L’Espalier and Sel de la Terre restaurants. Seated under the moonlight, guests will enjoy an evening of the freshest fare Chef McClelland has to offer. The Festival of Tomatoes menu includes:
WHEN: August 24 & 25
5:30 p.m. arrival
6:30 p.m. dinner begins
WHERE: Apple Street Farm
35 Apple Street
Essex, MA 01929
Other: Tickets to this event are $175.00 per person inclusive of tax and gratuity.
Space is limited so call L’Espalier at 617-262-3023 to make a reservation.
Dinners will be held rain or shine.

Poetry is an accessible mode of writing for children with all ranges of writing abilities. Whether an apprehensive or a confident writer, finding success in creating poems is possible for all.
This workshop is designed to bring a sense of fun, satisfaction, and pride for each child. The timing may be perfect for the transition back to school. Children will enjoy the process of coming up with ideas, choosing words, playing with language, and ultimately creating a small portfolio of poetry. Simple art projects will be used to enhance the presentation of the poems.
Jayne Lacey is a Boston Public School teacher, a writer, and a resident of Gloucester.
