Updates from Cape Ann Vernal Pond Team, Peter Todd at the Sawyer Free Library and Giggles Gloucester tonight at CACC.
We had a very nice pumpkin carving session at the Get Outside Center on October 25th. I know that was a long time ago, but I’ve been busy and I’m a little behind on my correspondence. Anywho… good crowd, lots of cool pumpkins. Check out photies on the Cape Ann Vernal Pond Team Facebook page.
Here’s a cool thing:
We have an intern this year. His name is Ben Alger and he is a senior at Manchester/Essex Regional High School. He is a member of the Green Team and he has chosen CAVPT to work with. He is already at work on a long-awaited power point presentation, and those of us who are technologically impaired are looking forward to using his expertise in updating our website and working on our Facebook page. Welcome Ben.
As far as presentations and field trips go, this is a slow time of year. However, there’s lots to do. We need volunteers for:
Office critter care- frogs, salamanders and turtles. We can train you.
Fundraising- we need people to work on this, ideas. We have a lot of expenses.
We need board members- Secretary, treasurer, director.
Now that we have a nice facility on Main Street in Gloucester, it would be real nice if we could have people there to answer questions and show people some of our animals. I’m at my real job during those hours and I just can’t really spend much time there.
And… one really cool organization, Cape Ann Wildlife Inc., is having a fundraiser on Wednesday November 12th at Jalapenos Restaurant, 86 Main St., Gloucester from 4:30pm til closing. 10% of proceeds go to CAW. Please help support these great rehabilitators of Cape Ann Wildlife, eat fabulous food, maybe have a beverage, and rub elbows with other people who are interested in the natural world. See you there.
On line auction for CAVPT and Kestrel is still in progress. New items will be showing up soon. Bidding closes on December 7th. Check it out, there’s cool stuff on there.
Please consider volunteering for some aspect or another of CAVPT’s activities.
Wednesday evening at 7 PM on the main floor of the Sawyer Free Library, 70 pieces of local art will be up for bid during the Annual Sawyer Free Library Art Auction. The auction has been a major library event for nearly 20 years, supporting programming, student art scholarships, and museum passes as well as art book, periodicals and DVD purchases.
The evening begins at 6 PM with a preview reception on the main floor, followed by the live auction at 7PM. Once again Jack Good, current President of the Essex National Heritage Commission, will be the auctioneer. Many generous local artists donate each year to this festive event. Just a few of the 70 artists represented include David Curtis, Jeff Weaver, Paul Frontiero, Don Gorvette, Ray Crane, Peter Tysver, Bob Blue, Theresa Wonson, Margaret Laurie, Mary Rhinelander, Susie Field, Fred Kepler, Brenda Malloy, Coco Berkman, Bob Blue, Paul George, Sinikka Nogelo and Kate Nordstrom, Allen Sloane.
Featured this year is a painting by the late Margaret Laurie donated by her daughter Jeannine Lynch; a painting donated by the widow of the late Bob Blue and a seascape painting by the late Paul Frontiero donated by his son Paul Frontiero Jr.
The auction is a win-win for all. It’s an opportunity to support local artists, purchase quality art at affordable prices, and support the interests of the community and its library.
