  1. Thanks Catherine. I was hoping someone would post the speech. Every visit to Gloucester shows work continuing, in various stages, to maintain and improve the infrastructure of the city while accommodating the day to day requirements of a good stable community and the many visitors who enjoy their moment of Gloucester life. Thank you Mayor, the staff and the community volunteers for your diligence and commitment to city of Gloucester and Island I still call home.

    1. Happy New Year, Mary. Thank you for adding that feedback. The balance achieved that you notice and described is a beautiful compliment. The TV video link will help with the emotion and warm reception not captured on the written page. Also the chance to see and hear John Ronan’s recitation and the other creative contributors, along with the speeches–
      Senator Tarr and John Rosenthal remarks as well the Mayor’s.
