Chamber’s Tourism Council to Host “Open Mic” Tourism Mixer on Monday, October 15; All Welcome!
Please plan to join your Cape Ann tourism colleagues on Monday, October 15 at the Rockport Inn & Suites, 183 Main Street, Rockport, from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm, for the Tourism Council’s fall “Open Mic” meeting and mixer.
All are welcome. Bring and share your ideas, your questions and your visitor stories, and help your Tourism Council and your Chamber shape the Chamber’s 2013 tourism marketing and promotion program. Bring your literature and materials to share as well.
Following a brief opening presentation by the Tourism Council, the bulk of our meeting time will be devoted to an open forum for exchanging ideas, answering questions, and helping shape plans for the Chamber’s 2013 program of work. There will also be time and opportunities for one-on-one conversations and networking.
Matt Anzivino, General Manager of the Rockport Inn & Suites, and Chairperson of the Tourism Council will be our host for the evening, and light refreshments, including beer and wine, will be offered compliments of Rockport Inn & Suites.
There is no charge for this event, and it is open to Chamber members and future members alike. We encourage you to pass along this invitation and bring along a friend as well.
Advanced registration is strongly encouraged. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday, October 12 to reserve your place. Best regards, and have a great Columbus Day weekend. Peter

I have been reading your blog for a while now and since you seem to know most everything going on around here, I figured I’d ask. Do you know why there are no street lights, no blinking lights at all functioning at Grant Circle??? This has been going on for weeks, maybe months and it seems a road hazard late at night. Any info? Nothing seems to be on your blog about it, Gloucester city hall, or Goggle that I can find. A post or response would be appreciated. Thank you!
