Hi Joey 

I am on a mission to Stop the Trashing of Good Harbor Beach & would appreciate any help to get the word out to all who go to the beach(s), public parks…on Cape Ann to pick up after themselves. 

After going to GHB this week I (along with everyone else I was with) was disgusted to see the condition of the beach, especially at the end of the day.

We went to a beautiful place to enjoy the sunset and found a trashed beach. 

Amazing how during off seasons people bring their dogs and pick up their dog’s poop. 

Humans go and don’t pick up after themselves. 

Trash is more harmful to the eco/environment then dog poop. Yet this happens!  I just do not understand why people get away with this. 


The Unitarian Universalist Society of Rockport will host it’s annual Summerfaire on Saturday, July 12 from 9 a.m. till 1
p.m. at the church, 4 Cleaves Street, Rockport. In addition to attractions including a silent auction, a book sale,
refreshments, bake sale, art, crafts, and plant sales, face painting, raffles, and the thrift shop, this year’s Summerfaire
will sponsor a special Animal Awareness Project. Special guests from Petco, Animal Krackers, and Cape Ann Animal Aid
will  focus on nutrition, adoption, training, and safety for pets; the Cape Ann Vernal Pond team, a bee keeper, and a
foster parrots organization will also be represented. At 1 p.m. the Chicken Coop Group, direct by Dona Lampert, will
perform an animal play. All are invited to this summer celebration that offers fun and information for everyone.



I’m organizing the summer arts programming at Cape Ann Art Haven and wanted to share with the community that Rob Logan of Charba fame will be joining us for the entirety of Painters Week, Monday July 21st to Friday July 25th, from 9 AM to 3 PM each day.  Any child entering first through fifth grade is welcome to attend, and scholarships are available for families who qualify.  Rob has been sponsored through a grant from Dunkin Donuts and Art Haven is very excited to welcome him back to Gloucester.

If you have any questions please let me know.

  • Our family has been disappointed and saddened by the conditions most late afternoons and nights by the amount of trash left behind. It is a huge problem! I have seen people taking it upon themselves to go around and clean up some of the trash, which I have thanked them for. We too try to take some but we just want to go to the beach and enjoy some family time. We are finding ourselves starting to avoid taking walks there later in the day. That is sad! I think carry in/ carry out needs enforcement or a change in policy as it isn’t working the way it is set up right now. If we count on tourism then we need a plan to keep our city clean for all to enjoy!
