We had a great time on Saturday at Maritime Gloucester.  Our snakes were a big hit and we were pretty much mobbed all day. Thanks to our courageous volunteers:  Kate, Diane and Jon Bevins, Nick Taormina, Marisa Neves, Colleen Anderson, Marion Healey, Keith Bertone, Wendy Antrim and Abby Cook.  Snakes were relatively well-behaved except for Ludwik who pooped in Marisa’s shoe.  Snakes today.

We got Charlie Farren and Satch Kerans to play at our benefit concert.  We got sponsorships, we booked a great venue.  We got a bunch of cool raffle/auction prizes.  Colleen printed tickets.  Cheryl made the event poster and we hung them up all over the place.  We got a hold of the Gloucester Daily Times and we posted on Facebook.  We are getting some airtime on 104.9 radio. But, we still need to fill the house to have a really successful fundraiser.  Please get the word out however you can. Show up and bring your friends.  We are most of the way there, but we need to bring this home.

CAVPT Benefit Concert/Auction with Charlie Farren all acoustic show. He’s really a talented musician, fun and dynamic performer.  Local musician, Satch Kerans will open the show.  Rick Roth, from Littleton MA will be there with some of his cool critters.  He’s the guy that was at our concert last year.  And Gloucester Rick Roth (that’s me) will be there with some critters as well.  There will be some auction/raffle action.  This is going to be a great show.
Its also a benefit for CAVPT so we need all of you to come out and support us and bring your friends.  I’m going to notice if you don’t show up, and I think you all know how I can torment people half to death for non-support of the Vernal Pond Team. Go to the Cape Ann Vernal Pond Team facebook page and check out the event poster.  Then share it with all your friends.  I’ll be watching.

We will also need lots of volunteers for this: ticket booth, auctio/raffle, critter management and more. Lots to do.

And… presale tickets are only $10.  So get them on line at or at Toad Hall Bookstore on Main Street in Rockport or The Get Outside Center, 186 Main St., Gloucester.  $15 at the door.

In other news, speckled kingsnakes started hatching here yesterday.  Watch out… they may make their social debut at the concert.

Oh… and I still need redback salamanders.
