GMG reader asks: What do the colored lights on Gloucester City Hall clock tower mean?

A GMG reader asks Joey about the colorful night lights on city hall and compliments Good Morning Gloucester:

“Thanks for all the work you do on the blog and podcast, and welcome center. I love the blog so much because of how funny and enthusiastic it is, and I always look forward to learning more about Gloucester. My friend and I were wondering, is there a story about the colored light on city hall at night? Sometimes there’s a pattern of colors, sometimes just one color. Do the colors have a meaning or is it just for decoration? We figured you’d be the person to ask, if anyone knows! Thanks a lot, hope you’re having a good day.” – Oliver 

City Hall Clock Tower Illumination

Thanks for the great question, Oliver. The pretty City Hall clock tower lights are illuminated to recognize special causes, organizations, events and holidays.  They were instituted by Mayor Romeo Theken and her administration. The City Electrician with Gloucester DPW installed an LED system which is outfitted with changeable color lenses. Requests for commemoration come to DPW through the Office of the Mayor.

The Mayor’s Facebook page may announce new lights and/or news articles related to a cause. The lights are fun to decipher: green for St. Patrick’s Day, rainbow cylce for Gay Pride, Fiesta trio, and so on.Who remembers the first color lights occasion?

update: Enza Taormina clerk from the Office of the Mayor relayed that this month, October 2019, the tower lights are ” purple for Domestic Violence Awareness Month.”

Azorian Styled Garden Created here in Gloucester

Emidio Silva created a special garden modeled after many gardens on the island of Pico Azores. This creation was created right here in Gloucester Massachusetts. The video was created by Antonio Faria a very talented videographer of life in the Azores and now visiting the US. The video is in Portuguese but you can see all the love Emidio and his wife have put into this gem of a garden here in Gloucester.

We also were very fortunate to have Emidio give us a personal tour of his garden.

Enjoy the video by Antonio Faria.
