A reminder of Memorial Day Observances

Please consider attending one of our Cape Ann Communities Memorial Day Observances. On Monday May 28, 2018 we will dedicated our time to honor and remember the ultimate sacrifice bore by so many young Americans on various battlefields and remember all those Veterans who have passed away. We are brought together by the notion of preserving the memory of our loved ones and as Veterans, Gold Star, Families, Friends, and Community we will ensure that those memories never fade into the darkness.

We had a Burnham’s Field clean-up and the people came and it was awesome

clean up - francescaWell, it happened again. We said, “Hey, it’s time for the spring clean-up of Burnham’s Field” and put out the word and the morning came and people came out of the woodwork to lend a hand. There was Gina Briguglio who’s been looking out for Burnham’s Field since the beginning  and Deb Salah who with her family quietly plants flowers in the field and shovels the walkways in the winter without asking for credit and nobody ever knows. And City Councilor Melissa Cox who’s been Burnham’s Field’s biggest champion in the City for years.  And Donna Ardizzoni and her One Hour at a Time Gang who clean up our city every weekend and as soon as they heard we were cleaning up the field raised their hand and said “How can we help?” and changed their plans last-minute so they could help out, too. And Aaron and Jamie and Brieana and Ambie and Bill and Steve and too many others to name. And so on a Saturday morning the people came to the largest park in central Gloucester and picked up litter and fixed a fence and cleaned over some graffiti and tightened some basketball rims and put up a community garden mural. And then the families came and the softball games began and the kids ran in the field and played on the playground and the sun shone over Burnham’s Field.
