Great show at the Gloucester Marine Railway

What a fun and great event at the Gloucester Marine Railway to benefit the Phyllis A. on Saturday. So many people to thank, Doug and Gloria Parsons and the Board of the Phyllis A. for putting up with me. Amy Beth for all your help with the accounting, Joey for your truck, Cape Ann Giclee for the great grids to hang, The Magnolia Library for grids, The Annisquam Exchange for the card rack, Pauline, from Pauline Gifts on Essex Ave. for grids, Rick Gates for helping with your truck, Walt Kolenda from Cape Ann Auctions for the rolling walls and my husband, Ricky. God love him for putting up with me and my anxiety about this. This show was so much fun to be able to go inside the railway and learn how it all works. Thank you vendors and guests who came to see the show.

Richard Arnold

While at the Marine Railway on Saturday met this nice gentleman named Richard Arnold.  He was the last Captain on the Phyllis A.  He told me they named the Phyllis A after his sister.  Richard stated that he is one of 6 children, five boys and one girl named Phyllis.  He also told me he served on the Nantucket Lightship.

Another reason I love visiting the Railways.

Wounded Warrior, Capt Dave Marciano Yankee Freedom copyright Kim SmithIn honor of our American military veterans and Independence Day, Wicked Tuna’s Captain Dave and Nancy Marciano are hosting a group of veterans aboard the Yankee Freedom. Captain Dave first began working with the Wounded Warrior Project about four years ago. He usually treats small groups throughout the season but his year has been incredibly busy for the Marciano’s and he needed a larger boat to bring out a larger group of vets.Wounded Warrior Marcianos Yankee Freedom copyright Kim Smith.jpgG

Captain Dave naturally turned to Captain Tom Orrell, from where he began his fishing career. Capt. Orrell owns and operates Yankee Fleet Fishing. Orrell was all on board with the idea and has donated his largest ship, the Yankee Freedom. Jim Destino donated lunch and Mayor Romeo Theken and the City helped organize gift bags.
