St. Peter’s Fiesta Latest Victim to Virus

The St. Peter’s Committee has reluctantly decided to cancel June’s Fiesta activities this year in concern for everyone’s health and safety. I think we all expected this and realize that many of the traditional Fiesta activities would put people at risk. A two day event is being considered for Sept 12-13 2020. We appreciate all the pain and consideration the committee has endured in making this decision.

Encouraging Signs

I have truly appreciated every single encouraging sign or display that people have created and shared over these last 100 weeks or so (just seems that way I guess).  They are all over the place and I thank you all. These are among the 2 biggest I have seen so far:

This sign may not have meant to be an isolation encouragement, but I took it as such all the same. Thanks Cape Ann Museum.


Janet French🌻 Requests readers to send a note or card of thanks to the staff at Den Mar Rehabilitation and Nursing Center


I wondered if you could ask your readers to send a note or card of thanks to the staff at Den Mar Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, 44 South St., Rockport MA 01966.

They could use the encouragement and support. I volunteered there until the Covid quarantine.

Thank so much,
