#GloucesterMA Mayor Romeo Theken and Beauport Hotel’s Jeanne Hennessey honored by North of Boston CVB at Hawthorne Hotel, Salem

On November 8, 2017 the North of Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau held their annual gala and awards dinner in the beautiful ball room at the Hawthorne Hotel in Salem, MA. Last year it was held at Beauport Hotel.

Naturally, Gloucester and Cape Ann have connections with the North of Boston CVB, and several board members include area business owners. Last night, Gloucester was in the house! Speakers were compelled to mention Gloucester even if they weren’t among multiple Gloucester contingent tables. Paul Tucker, MA House of Representatives, quipped that there was no surprise Mayor Romeo Theken received two standing ovations, and went on to compliment her as his favorite Mayor, and Kim Driscoll of Salem, too! Senator Joan Lovely confessed that her Grandmother was from Gloucester.  And “New Member Award” recipient, Willow Spring Vineyards, said perhaps they’d open up in Gloucester.

Congratulations to all the 2017 Tourism Award winners: Mayor Romeo Theken City of Gloucester, Jeanne Hennessey Beauport Hospitality Group; Robin Donovan, The Trustees of Reservation, Castle Hill at the Crane Estate; Hope Hitchcock, Witch Pix of Salem; Kathryn Rutkowski, Essex National Heritage Commission; Willow Spring Vineyards; and Paul Tucker, MA House of Representatives.
