Hi Joey.
I have been a random contributor of things I might think were of interest. Appreciate all that have you have done – and how you have remarkably brought this community together… I must say I am PASSIONATE about the UU Gloucester Church online auction (biddingforgood.com/uu auction). An amazing of not only cool people but a collection of goods and services that are relevant to today’s economy and also very indicative to the community we live in. This is a historic institution that needs to be maintained….the barest necessities.
Give it a look. I am a member of the church…but am also incredibly impressed by the selection of talent and and a critic that is amazingly impressed.  Appreciate it if you could pass the info along as the auction only has 9 days left…and it’s awesome! I’m a tough judge, so I do not say these things casually. It is an incredible church with a national history that makes Gloucester proud..appreciate all you might do to illuminate this incredible institution.
