Save The Date: Save Magnolia Pier Fundraiser

I am once again reaching out to all of our wonderful and supportive members and asking for assistance.  This time not for our beach, but for what a lot of us consider part of our “right of passage”  – MAGNOLIA PIER.  I would ask that you save the date of Friday, September 21st from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM for a fundraising event to help raise the private contribution portion needed to save Magnolia Pier.  Our neighbors at the Manchester Bath and Tennis have offered their facility to host this event.    Many artists and community members are donating auction items for the event for our guest auctioneer State Senator Bruce Tarr to auction off.  There are also several of our neighbors here in Magnolia and Manchester that have just asked where they can donate to this cause.  We are in need of donations, and volunteers to help with the auction as well as volunteers to help set up, park cars, serve food and so on.  This is a volunteer intense event.  In the days to follow you will receive information about the Save Magnolia Pier website and the link to The Gloucester Fund which will help us with receiving donations 100% of which will go to the pier.  You will also be receiving information about the fundraising sail aboard the beautiful Schooner Thomas Lannon, which will be held on Sunday, September 23rd form 11:00 Am to 12:30 PM,  If you have some time to volunteer, and item to donate (perhaps a beautiful picture or painting of the pier) please send me a reply.  There will be a planning meeting posted for those who can volunteer set up tomorrow.   The event will be a great time to socialize with your friends and neighbors and here about the pier project and what is being done.  I will have more detailed information to share with you before the week is over. Please send along any questions.

      1. Thank you great post – Your name sounds real familiar to me any relation to Lanesville? I was there 1957-1968 as one of the little rascals then from area. I seemed to recall the name Nick…Thank You sir! Dave
