It’s shaping up to be a very cool 2015 holiday season at the
Rhumb. We start with the great Chick Marston this week.
Face it. He’s the Grand Master. Such a wonderful study of the
American folk blues genre. Next week we’ll be doing a toy
drive for the first time EVAH with Marina Evans. The 23rd caps
it off with Sister Linda and Brother J.B. That’s right… another
Amero Family Christmas. It always starts early… 7pm! ~ Fly
Dinner with great music!
*Each week features a special, invited musical guest
Dave Trooper’s Kitchen…
Prepared fresh weekly by “Troop”… always good!
Plus a fine, affordable wine menu!
12/16 – Marina Evans Toy Drive (see below)

12/23 – Amero Family Christmas

Looking forward…
…to seeing you there 🙂

On Wednesday, December 16, Marina and I will be joining
hands (and voices) on behalf of “Pathways for Children”. We
hope everyone can pitch in with toys and books for the North
Shore kids in need. Feel-good stuff all the way. I’m very much
looking forward to this night. More details as we get close. ~ Fly

Composting at O’Maley Innovation Middle School!!! Funded by the Awesome Gloucester Foundation

940x470#Our idea is to establish a composting system in the cafeteria at O’Maley in partnership with Black Earth Haulers. Trash removal at O’Maley has gotten very expensive. In addition, many students are uninterested in eating school lunch and are just throwing it out. Our plan will reduce trash costs and provide costly compost for free as well as establishing a sustainable garden at O’Maley that will educate and feed the school, students and staff alike. The system will be one bin for each grade’s lunch with a small bucket in the kitchen for cooking scraps. Black Earth will take away our bins weekly and in return bring us compost which will benefit the school’s gardens and get everyone at the school more involved. We will be educating everyone on what is and isn’t compostable at school wide assemblies and short videos to view in homeroom (Black Earth’s bin’s also have helpful signs that inform students about what can be composted). Amazingly, many students at O’Maley didn’t even know we had a school garden. With the help of Backyard Growers, we hope to create more planting and harvestings days schoolwide providing fresh produce for everyone to enjoy. Along with Black Earth Haulers and Backyard Growers, our school chefs and faculty member Caitlin Sumner (8th grade science teacher) are on board. With the support of many, a well devised plan, and $1000 we can make this idea into a reality.

So, this guy joined our family over the weekend.  He couldn’t be sweeter and we are all in love.

I was trolling for a puppy for a couple of weeks as a surprise for the boys and checked the Salem Shelter and our own Cape Ann Animal Aid daily.

As a matter of timing, Minnow came from The Northeast Animal Shelter.

The first night that we had him we took a late night trip to Petco and were happy to bump into an adorable pup that had just been adopted from the Cape Ann Shelter!  They shared a quick meeting of the minds before we headed for home.

Please, please visit and support our local shelters.

North Shore’s Green Clean celebrates 10 years of Eco Lovin’ Home Scrubbin’

North Shore, Ma- Award winning environmentally conscious housecleaning company celebrates 10 years of service in January 2016. Green Clean, founded in Salem by then 22 year old Midge Lyon, has been well-revered in the community as a reliable and trustworthy company that is passionate about delivering excellence with an environment-friendly drive. They use all natural cleaning products, reusable cleaning tools and are very aware of use and waste within their operation. For the first several years, Green Clean’s service was a Salem, Ma exclusive and operated car-free. Midge and her staff geared up year-round on bicycles pulling a bike buggy crafted by one client and hand painted by another to fit a vacuum and supplies. 

Now using cars to serve more clients more reliably, their commitment to the environment remains a top priority. Currently their service is limited to area’s of Boston’s North Shore.

Over the years Green Clean has provided green jobs within the community. A socially conscious company, Green Clean pays their star employees above the local average in an effort to provide rewarding, meaningful and sustainable work.

Now in its 10th year and having earned six Best of North Shore awards, Green Clean is ready to grow. They’ve been meeting with prospects and discussing the possibility of taking on a business partner and expanding service. They hope to open a couple of new locations and hire from within the communities that they serve in order to reduce driving and create green jobs in the community. 

Open invite to the public to help us celebrate:
