Thanks to GMG Team from Committee for the Arts

Catherine Ryan writes-

Hi Joey

Thank you Donna and Marty for your photographs documenting the City’s murals restoration! As FOBs we’re so lucky to be exposed to so many GMG artist photographers and their unique take. Donna your posts and photos are upbeat and you seem to be in more than one place at one time! Your recent photograph of Morgan Faulds Pike’s Fishermen’s Wives Memorial, heroic against our Gloucester harbor’s big sky, was a stand out for our public art. There is also a whimsy in your work–like the detail of today’s “behind the scenes” Peter Williams’ placard for his posted hours. Marty, it seems the conservators are channeling the artist, Charles Allan Winter, in their chosen attire and you, too, in the way you’ve framed them among the portraits! Your photos also highlight the scale–the conservators look as if they could walk right into the murals among the denizens and jobs featured.

Long standing CFTA member Dale Brown with help from committee members Roger Armstrong of State of the Art Gallery are the volunteers primarily engaged with the management of this conservation project. Chair Judith Hoglander, committee member Marcia Hart and many past committee volunteers have worked so hard to raise the funds to commence this cleaning. It’s a very exciting time. Dale is also setting up an account with another incredible Gloucester good egg, Barry Pett, of the Gloucester Fund so that people who want to contribute to the Committee for the Arts can do so!

Allegra Boverman and Marjorie Nesin of the Gloucester Daily Times and the Cape Ann Beacon have also covered this conservation project. The Gloucester Daily Times has documented them from their first unveiling and nearly every decade since. All this reporting of the mural conservation will be part of their history, too, and help us see them in new ways. The Committee for the Arts hopes that Gloucester residents will have a chance to look for themselves just as we were so lucky to do with the turbines. More art and science up close. Gloucester is not dull!

Sidewalk Sweeping Day Report From Patti Amaral and Gloucester Earth Day Info!

Good Morning Joey, Here is a recent picture from Saturday’ s Sidewalk Sweeping Day, Donna and I were sweeping lower Main St when Kathleen showed up with her cutesy dog recovering from surgery. There was a lot less sand this year do to a lack of snow this winter. What we found horrifying is the majority of what we swept up was cigi-butts. I would like to thank the One Hour at a Time Gang for helping out, they are the BOM!

Don’t forget The Gloucester Clean Up For Earth Day-

Do you know of an area in Gloucester that, if you had the time and the help, you would like to clean up?  Well, here is your opportunity!  The City, in conjunction with the Clean City Initiative, is asking folks to turn out for a citywide clean up on Saturday, April 21st (rain date Sunday, April 22nd). 

The Clean City Initiative will be focusing its efforts on Stage Fort Park from 9 to noon, but the clean up is citywide and participants are encouraged to choose a public area in Gloucester they would like to see cleaned up.  We are also asking different groups to reach out to their members and pick a problem area to clean that day.  Listed below are some hot spots if folks need ideas.

    Green Street Playground                Cherry Street
    Pavilion Beach                    Maplewood Avenue
    Magnolia Avenue                    Centennial Ave to High School
    Poles Hill                        Fitz Henry Lane
    Thatcher Road                    Railroad Avenue
            Fort Square                        Gloucester Avenue

Details
If you are organizing a group and an area to clean, contact Rose LoPiccolo at Gloucester DPW before the event to let her know where you will be working and estimated number of yellow trash bags and clear recycling bags you will need.  Rose can be reached at 978 281 9785.  Rose will be maintaining a list of all the clean up spots to insure we are maximizing our efforts! Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own tools and re-useable gloves, although gloves will be available.

Not Attached to a Group??
On the day of the clean up, volunteers (all ages welcome!) should plan to meet at Stage Fort Park Visitors Center starting at 9 am until noon to sign in and pick up trash/recycling bags and gloves, if needed.

For questions about the event, contact: 
        Rose LoPiccolo, City of Gloucester Recycling Coordinator

Praise for Good Morning Gloucester

Hi Joey, I thought readers might want to see what was in my inbox this morning:

“Dear Kim,

Thank you for turning me on to Good Morning Gloucester.  Every city (and town) should have an equivalent.  What a great way to communicate enjoyments, appreciations, concerns, and complaints.”

We are truly blessed as a community to have a resource like Good Morning Gloucester. Thank you Joey and GMG team for all the good you have created, and continue to do, for our beloved community.

Dee Noble Writes-

Just completed our lesson and first paddle. Lainie (10), Bj and Amanda (13), and Flea and Me (old). It was a TOTAL blast. Tyler is awesome. We mastered standing, kneeling, turning, and boat wake. It was great. 5 for 5 had dry hair at the end.

Worth the trip. Very, very fun….

Are there more rabbits around than usual?

Donna Ardizzoni took this picture yesterday

Little Cotton Tail at Magnolia Beach

It seems everywhere I go there are rabbits hopping about lately?  Is it mating season?  Have the rabbits been getting extra busy if you know what I mean Winking smile ?

All those foodies who have been salivating over thoughts of dead bunny stew must be thrilled with such an abundance of livestock to choose from.
