Hi Joey!

I designed some awesome Glosta t-shirts to raise money for my Relay For Life team! Would you mind sharing them with your readers?

Thanks so much!

Vickie Grassman


Glostafarians for a Cure are a family team participating in the Relay For Life of Cape Ann in Gloucester, Massachusetts June 13-14, 2014.
There is something magical about Gloucester… a spirit that touches you when you spend time here. We think this tie-dyed Peace.Love.Glosta. t-shirt perfectly conveys the groovy feeling of Gloucester. Proceeds from the sale of this shirt go directly to the American Cancer Society to help create a world with less cancer.
Please support our fundraising efforts and help save lives by ordering a shirt today! Hurry… Ordering ends May 29, 2014!

Hi Joey,

Please post if appropriate…

The Rockport Elementary School EarlyAct Club (Rotary Club for elementary school students) vs Rockport Rotary Club Basketball Game is Thursday evening, May 22, 2014 in the Rockport Elementary School Gymnasium, starting at 6pm, with the game beginning by 6:30. Please come and support the kids, and bring family and friends! Only $5. per person, or $10. per family!  Proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit community and world service projects.  Many thanks and come cheer us on!

EarlyAct™ is a school-wide service club for elementary students from ages 5 to 13. It is sponsored by one of the local Rotary clubs in the township in which the school is located. The mission and operation of EarlyAct™ are closely linked to the ideals of Rotary and provide the foundation and natural succession into Interact.
EarlyAct™ provides young students the opportunity for gaining an increased awareness and knowledge of their community and the world. At a young age, all students can easily be encouraged to be caring and helpful. Their minds are open to recognize the dignity and worth of each individual which builds respect for others.
EarlyAct™ also engages students in character-building activities and prepares them for leadership roles to identify and carry out projects which benefit
their school, local and global communities.
