  1. I think you should ask a few questions that are specific to the person you are interviewing, so in Donna’s case, I would ask, “What’s the secret to always having a smile on your face?” 🙂


  2. Donna, You know I share your enthusiasm for Gloucester. Thanks for sharing it through your activities, the blog, pictures, etc. for those of us far away. You are definitely an ambassador and positive role model. And that is probably the answer to Terry’s question above.

    Hi Allen! Planning to see George in the next few days.


  3. Donna would always bring the kids up to the beaches in Gloucester. Once they had all grown up, she told me “I’m moving to Gloucester … You can come if you would like” … I’m glad I did !!! I echo her sentiments. Love it here !!
