Karen Pischke Represents! in Chicago

Good morning Joey.

Heard your discussion about Chicago in your last podcast. Gloucester is my adopted city, but Chicago is my home town. 

I visited Chicago in December and while there, represented GMG at Second City and in Little Italy, where I lived.

Leona’s was one of my favorite pizza places in the area. Stopped there for dinner after Second City; one of the few places to eat still open at 10 pm on a Sunday night. I was happy to see it’s still there more than 30 years later. Some of the same people were even still working there. The only thing that seemed different was the color of the table clothes. Maybe next time I visit I’ll bring back some pizza for a ‘Gloucester-Chicago’ pizza contest. :)

Have a great day.   Karen

GMG Mystery… I came to work today and someone had built an incredible GMG hand painted sign but I have no idea who did it.

Mystery Today. Came to work and someone made the most incredible sign for GMG. It’s heavy, it is hand painted, it is custom cut with the GMG sticker. And I have absolutely no idea who built it…

Please someone step up and let me know who built it so I can thank you!

O’MALEY INNOVATION SIXTH GRADE BUTTERFLY GARDEN A SMASHING SUCCESS!!!

Plant and They Will Come!

The proof is in the caterpillars!

2nd Instar Black Swallowtail Caterpillar ~ Willa Brosnihan Photo

Monday I had the great joy of being given the grand tour of the O’Maley Innovation School Butterfly Garden recently installed by Mrs. McGrath’s sixth grade class. We first had a screening of my film Life Story of the Black Swallowtail Butterfly and then went out to the garden to see the very same caterpillars!

The garden hits all the right notes with caterpillar food plants and colorful nectar-rich, butterfly attracting flowers. With the bed dug entirely by the students (you can see by the surrounding beds that the soil must have been incredibly compacted), prepped, and all planting done by the kids it is truly a fabulous accomplishment. You’ll see amazingly adorned handmade and beautifully painted informational signs and butterfly baths.

The garden was made possible though an award winning project created by students Emma Duckworth, Willa Brosnihan, and Kelsey Lowthers. For more information see the Awesome Gloucester Foundation O’Maley Butterfly Garden project page here .

John and Cathy Burnett Represent! At A Nats Game

Joey,

Attached is a photo of me and my wife Cathy at a recent Washington Nationals game in DC.  I grew up in Magnolia and graduated from GHS in 1966 and am still a Sox fan but living in northern Virginia for the past 27 years the Nationals have become my National League team.  I love GMG and it helps me keep up with things in my old home town. Keep up the great job.

Robin Jones Represents In Old Blighty

Joey,
Just finishing a two week holiday in old blighty. Came over for an automotive event (55th anniversary of the Mini) and figured a weekend wasn’t enough.
I went all the way out to Land’s End. If you’re ever over here, don’t bother. Total tourist trap.
Anyhow, having a blast touring the Cotswolds & sampling their beers and ciders.
Sorry the GMG sticker is so small in the picture. It’s hard to get a total stranger to frame a shot properly.
