2015 Essex River Race Results

Results for this year’s Essex River Race. The
race happened yesterday, May 16.  It’s an approximately 5 1/2 mile race
down the Essex River, around Cross Island by Conomo Point, and back to
Rt. 133 at the Essex Ship Building Museum.  The conditions were awesome,
temps in the low 70’s, sea breeze, overcast with just a hint of a
sprinkle now and again.
Chris Chappell, you can post these on the web site.  I am quite
confident of the results as the timing crew was impeccable.  So I am
also sending this out to the press.
Wonderful day, excellent event.  Thanks to all!
Peace, Dave

Motif 1 Day in Rockport was packed

On Saturday, Anna and I delivered some prints to Shore Thing, a gift shop on Bearskin Neck. Owners, Jennifer Clark and Becky Ingersoll are fun to work with and their shop is beautiful. We decided to stay for the Motif 1 Day festivities. In spite of it being a cloudy day, threatening to drizzle, downtown Rockport was packed.

We stopped by The Art Nook, David Arsenault’s gallery, Floating Lotus, G19 Artisans, The Fish Shack, and i art colony. We could hear Glass Onion playing in the tent on Dock Square almost everywhere we went. I loved the Side Walk Chalk Art on School Street.  I’m so glad that so many folks came out to celebrate Motif 1.

Here are some snaps I took with my phone…

Yesterday I received a gift that I will forever cherish from my Aunt Joyce LoLo Curcuru ! Aunt Joyce I’m so touch by your thoughtfulness. The rosary beads handmade made by your aunt Jeannie that you gifted to me yesterday are absolutely beautiful. When I opened the box I was speechless.  All 20 sets are gorgeous! Your Aunt Jennie Mooney truly has hands of gold! From the bottom of my heart I thank you  both💕🙏💕 Please know they have been added to our family altar and will be put to good use each night of our rosary for many years to come!

IMG_6340

Aunt Joyce you really pay close attention to detail…realizing our need for additional rosary beads this year! Each year our crowd grows and these beautiful sets of beads have been already added to my small collection of extra rosary beads draped on the Infant Of Prague Statue for family & friends to use during our prayer services🙏 during the Feast of St. Joseph. I look forward to leading our rosary with your beautiful gift next year!

IMG_6334

I absolutely love the matching pearl sets you sent for my mother & I💕. You & your Aunt Jennie will be in my heart💗 each night I lead the rosary!

Thank You

XOXO

Race Overview
The second annual Rocky Neck 5K Run/Walk, sponsored by the Rocky Neck Art Colony to benefit Gloucester’s Rocky Neck Cultural District and the Cultural Center at Rocky Neck Building Fund, takes place on Sunday, May 17, 2015 and for the first time this year includes a Team Challenge.  The USATF-sanctioned race will take off from the Causeway on Rocky Neck and return by way of Gloucester’s ocean-rimmed Back Shore to finish on Rocky Neck, where participants will be treated to a celebratory post-Race brunch and awards ceremony at The Studio Restaurant and Deck, overlooking picturesque Smith Cove on Gloucester Harbor.  Individuals and teams—runners and walkers of all ages—are welcome.  But everyone is urged to sign up soon, as participation in this year’s Race will be capped at 400.

The Rocky Neck 5K &Team Challenge will be a community ‘happening’ which benefits a neighborhood-based, volunteer organization committed to preserving Rocky Neck’s unique arts and maritime cultural heritage.  And, it will be an event offering lots of FUN for lots of people!  Nearly anyone can run or walk this event. Beginners can get a taste of what exercise and outdoor enjoyment bring. Experienced runners can sharpen their times on a forgiving course. Any kind of group will find it especially rewarding to compete as a team and/or with family and friends.

The Cultural Center at Rocky Neck, 6 Wonson St., will serve as Race headquarters, where packet pickup will take place on the morning of the Race.  Parking will be along the streets and in designated public and private lots on and around Rocky Neck, where volunteers will be positioned to assist visitors in locating a spot. There will be space available in Rocky Neck Park along the Causeway for individuals and teams to meet up and warm up before the Race.
