Preparations for the Christmas Fair at St. Ann’s

The Women’s Guild is getting ready for the big Christmas Fair at St. Ann’s Church in Holy Family Parish (as announced on this blog). Here are some photos of the preparations, and some shots of merchandise:

The tables run almost the full length of the hall, and many are already almost full

Bea Ciaramitaro is the organizer, who has been working hard to bring it all together

All sorts of things are available, including secular winter items...

...and religious articles for year-round use...

...and religious Christmas decorations...

...all set up by the Women's Guild elves! (Here, setting up the jewelry table)

They are climbing ladders to be sure that everything is of the "highest" quality, even the hall decorations!

There are also religious and secular books, and much more! Come check it out on Saturday, Nov. 19, 9AM-2PM, in the Parish Hall under St. Ann’s Church, at 60 Prospect St. in Gloucester!

Sunday Morning Steeple


I got up early again this morning and stopped down by Capt. Joe’s. It was about 7:00 and the sun, not as bright as yesterday, softly warmed the cove.

I absolutely love this time of day, especially on the weekends. And Spring is definitely on its way. The birds are extremely animated. Everywhere I go – sparrows, crows, gulls, woodpeckers, cardinals, chickadees, geese, buffleheads, ducks – a beautiful cacophony.
