Hi Joey. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am asking if you could post on Good Morning Gloucester the poster I am sending as well as promote it on your pod cast.
My husband past August 24 due to complications of hip surgery. He was very involved with Cape Ann veteran services, VFW, American Legion, and Gloucester Elks 892. He also delivered meals on wheels. Every 9/11 he would present a memorial for all to see at the city hall as he was a survivor of the 1 st building on the 74th floor.
Any questions I can be reached at cell 201-696-0522. Or email email@example.com
We took a trip to Marshall’s Farm Stand to pick out a Christmas Tree yesterday. We quickly found several trees to make a Top 5 list and then with the help of a Marshall, Jason I believe, we chose the right one. It’s our first Christmas in a new home and we had the perfect spot in mind (photos to come later this week). Our tree fits perfectly and we couldn’t be happier. Thank you, Marshall’s!
The pandemic hasn’t cancelled EVERYTHING! It looks like the holidays will be well celebrated in downtown Gloucester. The area near the police station went from stacked with shiny lobster traps to a tree display! Though there is no entrance any longer to view the tree from the inside, the gorgeous structure has been built (I understand in record time) for all to enjoy. I see colorful buoys on display from Cape Ann Art Haven on Main Street so it’s beginning to look a lot like the holidays!
