Hi Joey
Just wondering if you could send out a reminder.  The Grand Opening of my new Children’s Portrait Studio at Whistlestop Mall in Rockport will be from 9am-1pm Saturday, March 1st.  There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10am.  There will be over $900 in giveaways at the event along with some great grand opening discounts.  Oasis Rockport Children’s Portrait Studio is located above the old IGA in Rockport, at 37i Whistlestop Mall.  The studio will specialize in photos from Maternity through High School Seniors.  Here is just a sample of what Oasis Rockport does:

Maritime Gloucester is looking for pictures of Cape Ann — specifically pictures of coves, such as Folly Cove or Brace’s Cove — for potential use as the cover photo for the reprinting of the seminal book “The Sea is All About Us”, a guidebook to the marine environments of Cape Ann and other northern New England waters. First published in 1973, it was authored by Gloucester resident Sarah Fraser Robbins and noted marine biologist Clarice Yentsch, Ph.D. The photo should be high resolution and include “sky,” in addition to the coast line, as the title of the guidebook will be printed on the photo. We can offer attribution and Maritime Glouceter membership benefits to the photographer of the chosen photo. All photos must be submitted electronically to Tom Balf at by this Friday, March 14th. Thanks in advance.

Hi Joey,

The Rockport Rotary is hosting a Wine Tasting event at Cruiseport on March 28th. We would like to announce it to Cape Ann and thought you might be willing to include it on GMG  next week.  It should be a fun night and a much needed spring break from this cold winter weather.  The proceeds will benefit our community and international service projects.

Attached is a poster which provides the details on our event which include both live and silent auctions. We are moving it this year from the Shalin Liu to Cruiseport so we can accommodate more people.

Thank-you for your anticipated assistance in spreading the word.

Hi Joey!  Planning a fundraiser event for Cape Ann Animal Aid and would love if you could help spread the word.
Bark In The Park
Oasis Rockport is planning a Bark In The Park Day next month. Join me at Millbrook Meadow Park for Bark in the Park Limited Edition Pet Portraits. There are some gorgeous spots that make incredible backdrops for memories of your favorite four-legged friend. Limited Edition pricing will be in effect, with a session fee of only $45 and packages starting at $99. $5 of every session fee will be donated to Cape Ann Animal Aid as well as 10% of all portrait packages. Call 978-290-3184 to reserve a time. Sessions will be held on April 12th, and only a limited number of session times will be available.

On Saturday, March 8, vegan chef Elizabeth Reed of Rockport presented a class in cooking with winter vegetables. An avid crowd of nineteen cooking enthusiasts swarmed the kitchen of the Gloucester Unitarian Universalist Church as Reed demonstrated the preparation of three dishes: creamy roasted root vegetable soup, raw winter vegetable salad, and roasted Brussels sprouts salad with toasted spiced pecans. Students tasted all three dishes, learned about the benefits of a plant-based diet, and received plentiful recommendations for food shopping, kitchen tools, and cookbooks. The event drew cooks from Salem, Malden, and Concord as well as Cape Ann.
The cooking class was sponsored by the church’s recently formed Green Committee, which is making the church a community headquarters for information on environmentally conscious living. If you have ideas for future Green activities, please email the church For recipes and for more information on Elizabeth Reed,  visit her blog,
