Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Cape ann weekly Support Group


Good Morning Joey,

One out of seven children are being raised by grandparents and extended family.

The top two reasons are because parents are struggling with drug addiction and/ or

domestic violence.  As you can imagine for most grandparents this is extremely challenging,

emotionally, physically and financially.  With the support of several local organizations,

Cape Ann YMCA, Pathways, Senior Care, Open Door, and many more we were able to initiate

a support group on Monday nights , 6pm-7:15pm for grandparents . It is drop-in,  free, confidential

and  the YMCA provides free childcare.

I have attached our flyer in hopes that you will post on “Good Morning Gloucester” and your regular calendar

and of course anywhere else you think is appropriate.  Thank you so much for your continuing support

for our community.

Best regards,

Daphne Congelosi

NSAA Happenings

Open Painting & Drawing Sessions Selected Wednesday’s • noon-3pm • July – August – September

IMAGE ~ JUNE 16, 2018 ~ 11PIRATES ~


Fee $5 Suggested Donation Over the decades, art enthusiasts have looked to North Shore Arts Association for their introduction to and ongoing involvement in the arts. As part of NSAA’s commitment to fostering the fine arts and its dedication to community outreach, NSAA is offering these open sessions. A call to artists – beginners, intermediate, all levels are welcome to stop by and work on their own personal projects. This is a great way to meet other artists, socialize, exchange ideas and broaden your knowledge. Meet new friends and immerse yourself in the Cape Ann arts community! The goal is to develop increased knowledge and skill that comes from sharing and critiquing each other’s work. We welcome participants suggestions to help this program evolve. How it works – These sessions are informal gatherings and offer no formal instruction. The studio/gallery is open to anyone, from professional artists to amateurs. The grounds of the NSAA are also an option! Participants provide all of their own materials: easels, paints, canvas, paper towels, drop-cloths, etc. Artists are asked to pay $5 each. Light refreshments will be served. Reservations are highly recommended, but walk-ins are welcome. We reserve the right to cancel a session if no one has signed up in advance. If you’re planning to attend, we recommend making a reservation. 978.283.1857 or

@ISPVersailles – #Hero.

@ISPVersailles: I stopped this vehicle today for a left lane violation on I-65. The driver had approximately 20 cars slowed behind her because she would not move back to the right lane.

Again…if there are vehicles behind you, you must move to the right lane to allow them to pass.

Captain Pete Mondello Rebuilds His Trap Trawl Table Once Again

A GMG tradition through the years.

Tracking Captain Pete’s Trawl Table Rebuilds every 3-4 years.

Here’s this year’s table (built 6/16/18)-

And previous rebuilds-


Here’s Pete Mondello and Billy working on a new setting table for the Allison Carol.

When Pete hauls his ten pot trawls he will stack the pots along that setting table after they have been re-baited and then he will set the traps off the back of this “setting table”

Peter Mondello Making A New Setting Table, originally uploaded by captjoe06.


So Pete is rebuilding his trawl table on the back of the F/V Allison Carol and I coulda sworn he had just rebuilt it last year.  I’m thinking to myself jeeze, that didn’t last long.

So I say “Pete, didn’t you just rebuild that last year?  Two years ago tops?”

His reply, “Nah, that was three years ago.”

Well guess what?  Not only wasn’t it longer than one two or three years ago, it was 6 frickin years ago!

6 Years ago-

Where the heck is the time going?????
