VIDEO: Cape Ann TV’s Maureen Aylward interviews TimeBank co-founder Nancy Goodman & Chamber CEO Robert Heidt about Earth Day Eco-Trip

This just in from Lisa Smith at Cape Ann TV.  Watch the interview below the news release:

Celebrate Earth Day and discover what Gloucester businesses are doing to go green on the Eco-Trip Scavenger Hunt on April 20 at 12:30 p.m. On the Eco-Trip you’ll solve crossword puzzles and mazes, get exercise walking to eight downtown businesses, shop at the Cape Ann Farmers’ Market, win prizes from local merchants, and socialize over refreshments at Latitude 43. We can’t think of a better way to spend Earth Day.

When you register to play at capeanntimebank.org, you’ll get a free copy of “Share the Ocean” by Michael Crocker. Before April 13 it’s $10 to play solo or on a team. After that, it’s $15. So register early! 

Here Nancy Goodman, co-founder of the TimeBank, Robert Heidt, chief executive officer of the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce, and Maureen Aylward of Cape Ann TV talk about the Eco-Trip.

Cape Ann Winter Birding

image

Did you know there are more birds on Cape Ann in the winter than there are
in the summer? A great opportunity to see and photograph them is coming up
at the Chamber’s Cape Ann Winter Birding Weekend, February 1-3. It will be
headquartered at the Elks’ on the backshore, itself a good place to see
birds. There’ll be lectures and exhibitions, but there are also Saturday bus
trips with expert guides to all the best vantage points on the Cape to see
birds like the harlequin ducks on the logo. On Sunday morning (weather
permitting) there’ll be a boat trip offshore to see pelagic birds such as
eiders and gannets. Serious birders will get a chance to add to their life
lists, novices will get a chance to see what all the fuss is about, with
knowledgeable help. It’s great for kids too, very inexpensive, and all
wrapped up before the Super Bowl starts, (as if anyone cares anymore.) More
info is available at the Chamber website

Holland America Cruise Ship Eurodam Coming to Cruiseport Sunday, September 16

Peter Webber writes-

Good day. I am writing today to remind everyone that the next major cruise ship of the season will be arriving in Gloucester Harbor on this coming Sunday, September 16: Holland America’s cruise ship the ms Eurodam, with a capacity of 2104 passengers. Once again the Chamber will be working together with the city of Gloucester’s volunteer welcoming committee and CATA to welcome and guide Eurodam’s passengers as they disembark and arrive at the Cruiseport terminal. The first tenders carrying passengers from the ship are expected to arrive at Cruiseport at approximately 9:00 am Sunday.  Many will board motor coaches for planned excursions to various locations, while many others will be guided to CATA trolleys and buses for transportation to downtown Gloucester and Rockport. 

Please note the attached “Welcome Eurodam Passengers” flyer, which we encourage you to print and post at your place of business to help give the Eurodam passengers a hearty Cape Ann welcome.  I have also attached a flyer featuring several upcoming Chamber and community events scheduled for September and October, including next Tuesday’s (September 18) sales seminar with author Marc Wayshak at the Elks at Bass Rocks, beginning with check-in at 7:30 am.  Please contact the Chamber today to reserve your place.  Best regards.

#BOOM! Coastal Living magazine calls Gloucester a "Coastal Dream Town"

Joey,
More positive national media coverage for Gloucester: Coastal Living has a great article on Gloucester in next month’s issue. The article calls Gloucester a "Coastal Dream Town" and says Gloucester has a "rare combination of urban spirit and historic charm."
"An enthusiastic nightlife scene featuring live theater and local bands is bolstered by a restaurant renaissance," the article says about our city.

Great job by you and local Remax Realtor (and GoodMorningGloucester contributor) Kenny MacCarthy for talking with the reporter and providing colorful quotes in the story.
Matter Communications started talking with Coastal Living, one of the top lifestyle and travel magazines, about Gloucester two years ago so  it’s nice to see such a positive story finally come out! Matter works with the Cape Ann Chamber and local businesses to put the good word out about what a great place Gloucester is to live, work and visit.
Readers can see the Coastal Living story here: http://capeannchamber.com/Tourism/Coastal%20Living.pdf
Congrats, Gloucester!
