Last day for Gloucester Bingo

Wishing all good luck with Gloucester Bingo.  I have two rows, maybe I will win. 

The Gloucester Downtown Association

    Gloucester Bingo    Come downtown, support our local small businesses and have a bit of fun.   You may have heard that Boston created “Boston Bingo” as a means to jump start their local economy…well, we are having some fun with “Go Fish/Gloucester”!  We thought this could be a great promotion for Gloucester too and we would love for you to participate with us.   We are creating a “bingo” sheet with 20 or so general categories where one or more blocks could be satisfied by shopping/dining in your business.    An example of a few categories are:

 

 

  • Snag a sparkly piece of jewelry
  •   Upcycle something (buy something used)
  • Enjoy a drink with a friend
  •   Grab a sweet treat, pastry or cookie
  •   Visit a downtown bookstore
  • Buy a Glosta themed Tshirt or item
  •    Purchase a Mother’s Day gift
  • Ahoy! Buy something nautical

The plan is for this promotion to run from April 22 through May 22 .   On April 22 there will be 6,500 inserts in the Gloucester Daily Times and we are planning a media/social media blitz to get the word out.   Once complete there will be a few  locations to drop off their bingo sheet and be entered in two different raffles.  A winning card will enter players in a raffle with prizes such as having lunch with Mayor Sefatia, a trip for two on the Ardelle, a Maritime Gloucester membership and we are working on other prizes from local businesses.  If you would like to donate a prize, please let us know.       Submitting a card with one line completed in any direction counts as one entry into a raffle, while a card that is completely filled out will see the player entered into the grand prize raffle.  Winners drawn from the raffle will have their choice of all the prizes available at that point with grand prize winners having first pick.
We truly think this is a fun and creative way for engaging our customers and thanking them for supporting their local businesses.

 

 

The Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge

Rick and went to our nephew’s wedding in Charleston, South Carolina, first let me say what a great city Charleston is. Very happy to be back in Gloucester though. Here is a photo of the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge. Does it look familiar?  I took this photo from the boat going out to Fort Sumter.  The small fort in the photo is called Castle Pinckney.
The Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge over the Cooper River in South Carolina, connecting downtown Charleston to Mount Pleasant. The eight lane bridge satisfied the capacity of U.S. Route 17 when it opened in 2005 to replace two obsolete cantilever truss bridges. The bridge has a main span of 1,546 feet (471 m), the third longest among cable-stayed bridges in the Western Hemisphere. It was built using the design-build method and was designed by Parsons Brinckerhoff.
