Angel Bins Shoe Drive hit 900 pairs!!!

The GHS class of 2023 student council had 2 pallets of shoes picked up yesterday, ending the 3-month long collection of used sneakers and cleats.  The students were able to collect 900 pairs of shoes that are currently on their way to Los Angeles where they will be cleaned and shipped out to help stimulate economies in other countries.

The kids did a great job, but we couldn’t have accomplished this goal without the Gloucester Public Schools and the community support!
We thank you and appreciate your donations!

Speaking of lobsters, heard Senator Tarr on BPR radio this AM

Senator Tarr sounded great on the radio this morning. Spoke briefly about lobster fishery, Right Whales, and patrol boats. I believe I was listening to Boston radio 89.7, June 4 2021 (Was going to share the audio link if I found it- haven’t yet! )

One day in – new Jeks One (lobster?) mural on Harbor Village apartment building #GloucesterMA

This morning feeling an intricate hyperrealist & abstract nocturne, sort of mutant sci-fi, toxic-regal, lobster-crustacean-hybrid clone, with a hint of greed. A bit Alexis Rockman vibe. You?

Look up when you’re downtown!
