2012 Seacoast Holiday Fair Photos From David Cox

Hi Joey,

I have a couple of series of pictures taken by my Dad, David Cox at the Seacoast Holiday Baazar. They are great! We would love it if you would post them with the message below to the Friends of Seacoast.

The residents and staff of the Seacoast Nursing and Rehab facility would like to express our gratitude and give special thanks to the Friends of Seacoast for all they do to enhance the lives of the residents living at Seacoast.

The holiday fair sponsored by the Friends of Seacoast was a huge success and enjoyed by all!

joey – here’s the schooner with a broken mast on top of city hall.  the copper model was created by washburn on rt. 114 in 1989 and donated to the city by the cape ann savings bank.  this pic was taken just before she was hoisted up to her place of honor.  it is, of course, the elsie, built in 1910 by a.d. story in essex.  gordon thomas, in fast and able, called her "one of the greatest."  if anyone can help bring her down for repairs, step forward!  a model of the elsie by cape ann master craftsman erik ronnberg is on display at the cape ann museum.  it’s a beautiful thing…
