St. Peter’s Novena ~ Final night procession

To me, this night is the official kick-off to St. Peter’s Fiesta!  The Rosary, followed by Mass then the first procession of St. Peter down to Beach Court and then St. Peter rests in the club until he is brought to the Altar on Friday.  BLM_9825-Edit

St. Peter’s got some new landscape on Beach Court with The Beauport and it’s red and green glowing lights.

St. Peter will rest after his 9 day Novena until he is processed to the Altar on Friday

Awesome Gloucester Grant – Little Free Library

The Little River Little Free Library was the winner at the most recent Awesome Gloucester Pitch Night, receiving $1000 from the local micro grant foundation to build install and maintain a Little Free Library at Stubby Knowles Landing on Essex Avenue. This free lending library is part of a national movement and joins other LFL’s in Essex and Bay View as a community resource. Watch for more around the city. 

Each month the Gloucester chapter of the Awesome Foundation solicits proposals from the community and chooses the top three to attend a public Pitch Night on the evening of the third Monday. Submitters make their case before the 20 local trustees who have each donated $50 toward the monthly award. The top vote getters walk away with $1000 in cash. Proposals to make Gloucester more awesome can be made at Awesome Gloucester.

Jones Creek

The one and only Finn turned 7 yesterday and was very clear about how he wanted to spend the day.  Soccer camp, ice cream, bike riding, paddling boarding, and sushi.  We added the Summer Solstice as a bonus.  Why not.

While the whole day was pretty great, my favorite part of it all was taking the SUPs to Jones Creek and having some quality time with the birthday boy.  With Thatcher off at sailing lessons, Finn and I were able to spend some time on the river, hunt for crabs, and enjoy the view.
