Live blogging: it is a gorgeous night and packed — ready for discussing upcoming season plans! Mile Marker One looks beautiful — getting all their outdoor decks ready to roll.
*news update: I amended the post to update it with some names and businesses seen in the photos and at the party–which I couldn’t manage live blogging.
So who was there and who helped?
Peter Webber, Ken Riehl, Kerry McKenna were there for the Chamber. The photographs show a range of businesses and organizations across Cape Ann coming together on such a nice evening like: Blue Shutters Beachside Inn, Cape Ann Camp Site, Cape Ann Plein Air, Cruiseport, Gloucester Stage, Vista motel, artist Melody Phaneuf, Mile Marker One, North Shore Music, Pauline’s Gifts, Rocky Neck Art Association, Ryan and Wood, Schooner Adventure, seArts, Seven Seas Whale Watch, and Woodmans.
