Don’t miss Jason Grow’s stunning Cape Ann World War II Veterans photography show on exhibit at Kyrouz Auditorium and open specially today, Veteran’s Day, from noon to four o’clock.
If you have a relative who served in WWII, bring a copy of a photo of them for the Memory Wall and post it (please don’t bring originals, they won’t be returned).
From Jason’s website:
“This year, 2015, marks the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II. Thousands of men and women from Cape Ann – Gloucester, Rockport, Manchester and Essex – served our nation during World War II. More than 5,600 of roughly 25,000 residents from Gloucester alone joined the conflict serving in every branch of the military. Of those, 119 never made it home. As we recognize the end of that great conflict, we have to acknowledge that fewer and fewer of Our Greatest Generation remain. Their actions, their history, and their stories are an integral part of who we are as a nation. Though we continue to see conflict in the world, with men and women stepping up to serve our nation, it is unlikely that we will ever see such an epic, world-wide conflict again. My goal has been to photograph these remaining veterans from, or who now call home, Cape Ann, to honor and recognize their service to our country, and their place in our history. These are ordinary men and women who were called upon to do, at times, extraordinary things. To all our veterans, from every conflict, thank you. Currently on display at Kyrouz Auditorium in Gloucester City Hall – Gloucester Massachusetts – during business hours, through November.” To see the portfolio of WWII Veterans, visit Jason’s website here.

The O’Maley Innovation Middle School’s Performing Arts Department cordially invites members of the Cape Ann Community to attend our upcoming production of Disney’s Little Mermaid Junior.
Performance dates and times are as follows and tickets can be purchased at the door.
Since September, our cast and crew of almost one hundred 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students have been rehearsing twice every week after school. You will be inspired by the talent and exuberance radiating from these young performers singing, dancing, and acting out this popular and heartwarming story. Performing Arts classes during O’Maley’s school day focus on developing students’ 21st Century Skills and Common Core mastery through an interdisciplinary, project-based curriculum that utilizes the mediums of Theater, Music and Dance. This production is an excellent showcase of our department’s extra-curricular offerings, which focus on developing standards in the disciplines of Music (Chorus), Dance, and Theatre within a performance setting.
See you at the show!
I’m unbelievably saddened by the loss of good egg Jason Grow on the Council.
Jason is a guy that looked at each issue and really researched it, gave all sides consideration and then made a decision. He didn’t go into every vote with a preconceived notion of what way he would vote. A great mind and a caring individual, losing Jason on the Council is a HUGE LOSS.
I’m not even sure if Jason reads GMG but my words to him would be to enjoy the time with his family and I appreciate all the work he has done for the betterment of our community.
thanks to Councilor Jason Grow for forwarding this to me. Makes alot of sense.
