Cruiseship coming May 4th: let’s roll out a welcome downtown THIS ONE

Cat Ryan submits-

Hi Joey,

A cruiseship is coming! A cruiseship is coming! Sunday, May 4, 2014, Holland America will be arriving at Cruiseport

Calling all Main Street, downtown, shops, restaurants, cultural districts, Rocky Neck:

v Open up if you can on Sunday May 4, and maybe at an earlier time (see flyer)

v Print out and hang up a welcome sign that’s being created for this day (coming soon!)

v By April 30th, email Carol Thistle  if you will be open, cthistle@gloucester-ma.gov

v By April 30th, email Carol Thistle if you can offer a special discount or have a creative theme you would like to share.

o Gloucester doesn’t need too much help in that department but if you’re needing last minute oomph ideas, search GMG and see what Toodeloos and Pop Gallery and so many others come up with for holidays and block parties!

v Some of downtown is open Sundays anyhow (Island Art & Hobby); it would be good for all of us to know who is open on Sundays

v Passengers won’t be able to visit everywhere, of course. Residents: this might be a fun day to come together to support downtown, your favorite store, restaurant, gallery– and some great people watching!

Gloucester is one port of call. Hundreds of passengers have pre-booked, arranged itineraries– day or ½ day trips that will depart directly from Cruiseport.  Some  passengers remain on board. Many passengers specifically selected disembarking and exploring Gloucester.

Stage Fort Visitor Center will be open. Maritime Gloucester will be open. Cape Ann Museum is closed for renovation. How about you?

Video: Sista Felicia’s Book “Gifts of Gold” Red Carpet Interviews

The Gifts of Gold Gala Event was a smash hit in every way, from the outstanding hors d’oeurves and refreshments, all prepared from the pages of Gifts of Gold, to the stunning decor, created by Felicia, Daphne, and friends. Lillian, Rick, and Joey are wonderful interviewers and, with everyone there to celebrate Felicia’s much deserved success, there are lots of sweet moments in the video. Thank you Sista Felicia for a wonderfully memorable evening!

Sheree Zizik and Cruiseport Gloucester personally deliver breaking news to Sista Felicia that they will be rolling out the Red Carpet to make The Cookbook Launch Party a night Gloucester will remember!

Sista Felicia writes-

In early June, I reached out to Sheree Zizik about having the Gifts of Gold: In a Sicilian Kitchen with Sista Felicia Cookbook Launch Gala at Cruiseport Gloucester’s exquisite ballroom. I knew her venue overlooking Gloucester’s beautiful working harbor would be the perfect place for this celebration. Sheree is a community-oriented businesswoman who, time and time again, generously gives of herself and her business establishment, taking excellent care of her customers with the utmost attention and respect. She welcomed me with open arms and embraced hosting the cookbook event as if it were her own. She immediately reassured me that she personally would see that every detail planned would be delivered Sista Felicia style.
It was Sheree who guaranteed recipes from my cookbook would be prepared and served by her caterer, Vinwood Catering. It was Sheree’s idea to literally roll out the red carpet upon which guests would walk. It was Sheree’s idea to give GoodmorningGloucester’s paparazzi a designated spot to photograph guests as they arrived at Cruiseport for the Gala. It was Sheree who insisted all would be taken care of, thus allowing me to be able to relax and to enjoy the festivities with my guests.
Merely thanking Sheree is not enough. I am so grateful to know her and to call her my friend. Gloucester is so lucky to have such a community-spirited and dedicated business owner in its midst. Please help me thank Sheree Zizik for her part in creating such an extraordinary celebratory evening by supporting her and Cruiseport Gloucester in the future.
Here is the Gala’s menu…straight from the pages of Gifts of Gold…
