Pet of the Week- HAWC


Talk about a dream come true!  I am sweet and soft with a passion for napping in sunny spots.  I love catnip toys and listening to you talk about your day.  Hey, I have a great idea!  You can stop in for the CAAA Holiday Fair & Open House on December 6th from 11am to 4pm, get some of your Holiday shopping done and adopt me at the same time!  What better way to celebrate the Holiday Season than giving a needy pet a new home!  For more information on adoptable pets and upcoming events please visit

Martin Del Vechhio Will Be Doing Santa Photos

I will be doing portraits with Santa and Frosty again at this year’s East Gloucester Elementary School holiday fair.  The fair is this Saturday, December 6th, from 10:00a to 2:00p.

Portraits are printed while you wait, for $10/sheet.  A variety of picture packages are available, just like with school photos.  They make awesome presents for grandparents, and even better gift tags.  You can also get a high-resolution JPG image for $25, which you can use as a Christmas card.

Bring your kids, your pets, your parents, and your props!

All proceeds go to the EGS PTO.  Don’t wait in line at the mall for a tired Santa and poor lighting; come to EGS!
