Call To Action Paprika Grill-

Pam D’Ambrosio writes on Facebook- “I heard that Paprika Grill on Washington St. may have to close due to lack of business. So sad Gloucester might lose this Mediterranean option – tasty healthy food, always fresh and made to order by the friendly young proprietor. Awesome baba ganoush! If you haven’t visited, please check it out”

Come to the GAAC Holiday Party Dec 8!

Cape Ann Community


GAAC is extremely fortunate to have Sky & Telescope Magazine Senior Editor Kelly Beatty as our speaker for the December 8 Holiday party, with a riveting presentation on “The Sputnik Years.” Kelly will show us how it all happened, who was involved, and what some of the many important historic results of that event have been.

October 4, 1957 marked the beginning of the Space Age, with the launch of Sputnik by the Soviet Union. The satellite sped by over the heads of the world, and the space race was on. Everything that came later, from John Glenn to Neil Armstrong, from the Mercury rockets to the moon landings, to the Voyagers and the Rovers, to New Horizons’ visit to Pluto, follows from this one little satellite.

Kelly Beatty has been honored twice by the Division for Planetary Sciences (DPS) of the American Astronomical Society. In 2005 he received the…

Meet the Crossfit Cape Ann Coaches!

Cape Ann Wellness


Our coaches run every class as a teacher, a resource for questions, a motivator, a support system, and a safety supervisor. Our coaches are responsible for ensuring that your form is correct and that the exercise volume and load is adjusted to your current fitness level. Sometimes they may give you a nudge if needed to push it little more and other times they may encourage you to slow down. Beyond that, our coaches make themselves available to meet with our current members to discuss realistic goals, nutrition and to help them establish positive lifestyle practices. Our coaching staff is truly the best around!

Interested in learning more about them?

Salmon On The @WeberGrills Smokey Joe

Northeast BBQ

I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say there is no easier to prepare and cook on a kettle food that scores more impress points than salmon.

Literally a half a chimney of charcoal on one side, you spray the salmon with olive oil, hit it with salt, pepper and whatever other seasonings you might like and you place it offset the coals til it hits 150 degrees internal temp.

So easy, so sensational.  For the brothers out there- you got a date with a special lady?  Hit ’em up with this recipe,  it’s a panty dropper for sure.

Special Hanukkah Commemoration

Cape Ann Community

Tuesday, December 12th at 5 pm

On Tuesday, December 12, 2017, Cape Ann’s Jewish community will remember the 10th anniversary of the devastating fire that destroyed our building, honor our Cape Ann neighbors who helped us rebuild, and look ahead to continued growth.

The event will begin at 5 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Church (10 Church Street) where we held our Sabbath service the day after the fire. Then, we will parade down Middle Street to our new building with lights and music.

At the synagogue, we will light the Lobster Trap menorah and then move upstairs to our social hall for a brief program followed by refreshments and music.
