Last year, 5,000 samples were served from 62 gallons of Fishermen’s Wive’s redfish soup. Unbelievably, this year’s batch of soup looks like an even greater amount. A tremendous effort on behalf of our community has been extended by Angela Sanfilippo, Sal Di Stefano, Cara Ring, Mark Ring, Natalie Ring, Tom Ring, Mariella Cannavo, Margherida Bellicia, Todd Snopkowski from Snap Chef, Misslewood Executive Chef Sean McCarthy, Jason Hakes, Abde Lhamid Yacine, Ethan Piper, Madi Woods, Patrick Finocchiaro, and everyone involved in the food preparations. Three cheers and a thundering shout out to Mayor Sefatia Romeo Thekan for her vision in bringing Gloucester for the second year in a row to the Seafood Expo North America, and a huge thank you to everyone working so hard to make SENA16 a great success.

After injuring my elbow this winter, the next step to recovery is working with an occupational therapist. From the long list of possible rehabilitation centers provided by the arm physician I wasn’t sure where to turn. Because my family has been very well cared for by the Addison Gilbert Hospital Emergency room staff, as well as the fact that it is so convenient, made deciding upon AGH easier. When making the initial appointment I stated one criteria and that was that whoever was assigned me had to be extremely gentle.

I liked Francine from the moment I met her and not just because she is super gentle, she is also smart, kind, compassionate, and truly knows her profession. If you are ever in need of an arm OT, Francine is the one. She has been treating patients for twenty years, seventeen of those years at AGH. Francine specializes in nerve and tendon injuries of the hand and arm, arthritis, trauma, and wound care. If you are ever injured, which I sincerely hope you are not, but if you are, ask for Francine; you will surely be in the best possible hands!

11 Year Old Brothers Charles and George King’s Efforts to Save Civil War Union Soldier Coat Featured in the Banner!

Brothers Charles and George King write to GMG ~

“The Bay State Banner, a Boston newspaper, published an article about the Civil War coat after the Cape Ann Beacon article. We will pick up a copy of the Banner as soon as possible. In the meantime here is the link:

 Slave’s coat protected Union POW; now brothers strive to save the coat

Please share. Thank you to Yawu Miller, the Editor of the Banner and Jule Pattison-Gordon, the reporter. Jule, we think it’s fantastic! We think you did a great job of making it clear.

To learn more about the Banner and its 50 years of stories, see the documentary on their home page. We watched it after our interview with Jule.  We’re so excited Gloucester is in the paper!”

Cruiseport was filled to overflowing with the joyful sounds of children laughing and parents socializing, all there to join in the fun of Art Haven’s 8th Annual Buoy Auction. The hundreds of buoys hand painted by local children were displayed in a fresh new layout with a “Haven Walk” surrounding the perimeter.
