Community Stuff 11/4/12

Look for Scott Memhard, Cape Pond Ice and Capt. Tom Testeverde of the FV Midnight Sun on TV in an ad for Blue Cross/Blue Shield of MA.

It’s him; there are clips of other members, but he’s the first one! … And from Scott himself:

"yes, we’re included in some testimonial ad spots for BCBS of Massachusetts, since they’re celebrating 75 years, and Cape Pond Ice has been in business serving the Gloucester fishing fleet for 164 years, and a member subscriber with BCBC for over 30 years.

Their agency approached us about participating and, after dragging our feet, concerned about the disruption of filming during our busy summer ice season, we eventually agreed. They spent a day mid-August with a very professional 30-person crew here filming and interviewing at the Ice Company, as well as with Capt. Tom Testeverde on the FV Midnight Sun, at our wharf.  Jonathan Bekemeier from Picture Park is the Director, and Partners & Simons is the ad agency.

At least its not a political ad, thank God – but I apologize in advance for barging into people’s homes on their TVs !"

On Saturday evening, October 29th Holy Family parish hosted an Italian Night fit for a community embedded with a love of Food and community.  Along with good food and good company they were entertained and kicked up their heals with the legendary artists Barry Mooney and friends.  Decorations were the wonderful and unique Aprons donned by the Guild family members, grandmothers, and mothers from years past that were used for shy children to hid behind, a perspiring brow, gathered vegetables from the garden, a pot holder or tissue to wipe away the tears Of a crying child.  

Pictured serving our guests are Alison Aiello and John Aiello.
