Gloucester Meeinghouse Foundation announces their 2017 line-up
First up Berklee Be-Bop Guitars on July 7 to benefit Pathways for Children
From Gloucester Meetinghouse printed matter:
“The Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation is pleased to announce the return of the free, outdoor concert series ‘Music on Meetinghouse Green’ starting with the Berklee ensemble Be-Bob Guitars to benefit Pathways for Children on Friday evening July 7th.
Mayor Romeo Theken regrets missing the 2017 kick off concert due to a prior family commitment, and she’s ever thankful that this fantastic series at such a grand and special venue is continuing after the pilot program last season! She’s asked Ward Councilor Melissa Cox to be on hand to open the first event. Mayor Theken is especially calling out old friends to come downtown to the old stomping grounds for all of them…especially August 11th!

Maddie, Owen, Cole and Avery have been staying with Papa and Nonnie since Sunday night. We are having such a great time with them. So far, beach, Maritime Gloucester, Lego Land, Mile Marker to swim, Wingaersheek Beach and today the beach with Aunts and Uncles. Lots of fun and so grateful we live where is so much to do.
We like to support Gloucester Stage and Heidi Dallin, and try to see anything with Lindsay Crouse. There’s no question that Gloucester Stage productions are mostly terrific.
Tom Hauck’s GMG review compelled us to see the New England premiere of The Effect, Lucy Prebble’s 2012 dramatic play at Gloucester Stage. It’s a go see for sure! I think it’s the best play about thorny life and medical themes since Wit. We can delight in Prebble’s dynamite dialogue because the direction, acting, and set are pitch perfect.
Who knew? You can bring that glass of prosecco you didn’t finish back to your seat.
Buy seats on line for Gloucester Stage matinee today and you’d have time to make it over to Windhover’s dance tonight! Tough summer living here in Gloucester 🙂
Starting this long weekend with my feet in the sand. Love this place we call home!

I have a much better one of Joey “doing yoga”.
This is Joey doing yoga the last time he actually went up to his ankles at Niles Beach:
AH AHA! My superior internet sleuthing skills quickly identifies the culprit!
