Music on Meetinghouse Green to Benefit the Gloucester Meetinghouse Fire Deterrence Project

September 7, 2016 ~ Rose

Cape Ann Big Band in Free Concert, Friday, September 9, 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm

Corner of Middle and Church Streets, Gloucester, MA

capeannbigbandlarge2-w2000h1400This diverse 17-piece big band entertains and delights audiences with danceable music infused with jazz, swing, New Orleans street bands, soul, and rock n’ roll that will bring you back in time.… Known for operating like a family, Cape Ann Big Band prides itself with having a repertoire that has no boundaries. Their program includes such classics as “Mack the Knife,” “I’ve Got You Under my Skin,” and “Take the A Train.”

This is the final concert in a series of nine free outdoor concerts presented by the Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation.   The family-friendly concert begins at 6 pm. Bring a picnic, folding chairs or blankets. In case of rain, the event will take place inside the Meetinghouse (no food or drink permitted inside.) Donations will be accepted to benefit the Gloucester Meetinghouse Fire Deterrence Project.


About the Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation
The long term goal of the Meetinghouse Restoration Project is to complete a historically informed but fully functional building restoration, both to preserve this important landmark and to be a cultural gathering place for all of Gloucester and Cape Ann. The church has a long history of community service, with a congregation eager to share the space. Until it can be protected by a comprehensive fire-sprinkler and detection system with fire-stops in the walls it will remain at grave risk of loss.

Seaside Garden Club Kicks off Their 2016/17 Season next Tuesday

September 7, 2016 ~ kwillwerth

The Seaside Garden Club is kicking off their 2016/17 program year with Medicinal Use of Native Plants demonstration on September 13th at the Manchester Community Center (Click here for directions). Social time begins at 7:00 pm and the program begins promptly at 7:30 pm. Light refreshments will be served.  All are welcome. $5 guest fee for non-members.

Are you curious about the “weeds” growing around your property or neighborhood? Dr. Nicole will show us some local native and introduced plants and discuss some of their traditional uses. The goal of the program is to begin to identify, and build relationship with, some of our potentially edible, medicinal and useful plants (with a focus on weeds); so that we can correctly identify them in our own backyards and perhaps even grow some. The wild weedy area around the train tracks in back of the Manchester Community Center will be used to find and identify plants as they are seasonally available. Come prepared with bug spray and protective clothing. A reference handout will be supplied for further study.

A traditional medicine woman, community herbalist and family chiropractor, Dr. Nicole K. Andrade, CACCP has been studying and practicing natural healing techniques for 20 years.  She owned and operated Atlantic Family Chiropractic, PC in Gloucester for 13 years, was the founder of the Cape Ann Healing Center and a co-founder of Treetop Yoga Studio. She is certified from the Academy of Family Practice and the Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics and has studied reiki, shamanism and ethnobotanical and spiritual healing traditions for 10 years with indigenous and traveling healers of New England, New Mexico and of the Amazon regions of Peru, Brazil and Ecuador.  She currently works as an associate doctor at the Lydian Center for Innovative Healthcare in Cambridge, MA.

The Seaside Garden Club has a terrific line up of programs and speakers for this year, including: Aster B Flowers, All about Perennials with Steve Hebert and the Art of the Vignette with club favorite Cheryl Munroe. Always popular workshops are being offered, starting with a holiday workshop lead by Jackie Rich in November and an Outdoor Container workshop at Chapman’s Green House in the spring.  The annual Plant Sale and Auction is scheduled for May and our season concludes with a Book Discussion and potluck dinner in June.

The Seaside Garden Club meets the second Tuesday of every month (September through June) at the Community Center, Manchester-by-the-Sea.  Social time begins at 7:00 pm; programs begin promptly at 7:30 pm.

Renew your membership by the September meeting in order to be included in the annual Yearbook! Annual membership is $25.00. Guest fee is $5.00 per meeting. Make your check payable to: The Seaside Garden Club, PO Box 94, Manchester, MA 01944.
