43rd Senior Care Meals on Wheels fundraiser buffet breakfast at Gloucester House

Many familiar faces and organizations came together in support of Senior Care’s Meals On Wheels, and showed up early to help host a festive and delicious event. We enjoyed sharing a table with staff from Cape Ann Savings Bank,  GoldenLiving Center, and Betty and John Erikkala from Lanesville. The Valentine’s Day fundraiser buffet breakfast was pushed back to March 10 due to the winter storm. March being March it was lightly snowing when we left.


I missed John and Betty Erkkala’s Souvenirs of Lanesville talk at Cape Ann Museum about their new book, but noticed the pocket ornament. The book is  available at the museum shop. Our marvelous city archives were mentioned once or twice!


Custom place mats gave thanks for the wonderful sponsors. You’ll recognize people in the photographs affiliated with these organizations and businesses.

  1. Great turnout at Gloucester house!! Thanks for sharing this gem and their are some names I remember growing up there Erikkala…There dog loved us kids and Barbra Erikkala would pick him up from our porch on her way back from the Gloucester Daily Times we lived on Washington street then.
