Congratulations to Joey DaSilva, 2015 Saturday Greasy Pole Champion!
Joe’s Mom, Anita Louise Stewart, writes on FB, “My son took his first flag down in 2011 on the 80th greasy pole anniversary . That year Hurricane Irene took down the greasy pole in Sept and In November they did a greasy pole fund raiser called the Fall Classic down at the GHS; gold, bronze, and silver rounds. My Joseph took the gold and he was the only winner that day who had won over land and sea, dubbing him Surf and Turf. He set the Guinness world record in Cali in July 2012 for walking the greasy pole in 4.9 seconds and taking the flag down in the 2nd round. He held that record for 2 years. Today he took the flag down once again, 2nd round, and now he is a lifetime walker on Sundays. The only way to go Joseph Cole DaSilva– -Friday 2 Saturday and Saturday 2 Sunday…Keep going…”
Fabulous and delicious cake made by Maria for my in-laws 65th wedding anniversary. Needless to say it was huge hit, with layers of raspberry and lemon cream sandwiched between creamy sweet frosting. Stop in to Caffe Sicilia for your Saint Peter’s Day cakes and confections. See Maria featured on the front page of today’s Gloucester Daily Times!

Snapshots from Friday night opening ceremony. I am mostly filming, but do manage to take a few photos. So many beautiful moments last night–I wish there was a simple way to film and take good quality photographs at exactly the same time.
