“The Gloucester Downtown Association‘s Sidewalk Bazaar Coordinator has moved to Salem; Danielle Capalbo did a great job for us for the Bazaar and our Christmas promotion.  I am sure we all wish her well in settling into her new home. The Glouceser Downtown Association (GDA) is now looking for a new Bazaar Coordinator which is a paid contract position.  So if you know of anyone who you think might be interested, please have them send a resume to Patty Gates (Premier Imprints)  or myself ( The Weathervane) for consideration.”
Joe Ciolino, Director GDA”

The annual Christmas Parade this year on November 29th is being organized by Joe Ciolino and others. Parade organizers are looking for Christmas themed floats and bands. The parade will start at 3:15 this year from the State Fish Pier. It will end at Kent Circle and will be followed by the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony. People and floats can begin to line up at around 2:00 PM.

Anyone interested in making donations to make this annual event successful can do so by sending donations in care of the Gloucester Fund, 45 Middle Street, Gloucester, MA 01930. Please enter “Santa Parade” on the memo line.

Help pass the word about the Parade to others as time is short. This is a community event and needs community support. For any questions, please contact Joe Ciolino directly at 978-281-1227.
