Mayor Sefatia’s inaugural celebration, held at Tonno Restaurant, was attended by a gathering of friends and supporters, including Massachusetts’s beloved Governor Charlie Baker and State Senator Bruce Tarr. Guests enjoyed the beautiful spread prepared by Chef Anthony Caturano, with wonderfully delicious desserts from Caffe Sicilia, and everyone wanted to have a photo taken with Governor Baker, which he kindly obliged. Mayor Sefatia spoke about her early days working on health care with Governor Baker and of his great compassion. See the Instagram videos for more from the Mayor and Governor Baker.
Yesterday, we had perfect weather for the opening ceremony for the Cape Ann Museum Park and Sculpture Garden – here are some photos!
