The Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation

July 30, 2021

The Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation presents What Time Is It Mr. Fox? in a free Friday evening concert on Meetinghouse Green
at the corner of Middle and Church Street, August 6 at 6:00 p.m. Named after a Victorian children’s game, What Time Is It, Mr. Fox?
delivers their own brand of smoky cabaret, neo-soul and acoustic noir, sounding something like Leonard Cohen and Amy Winehouse
performing unplugged in a French café. Renowned for their original songs combining rich lyrical imagery with a cinematic sensibility,
their music explores themes of love, spirituality, and identity.

Free-will donations go to the evening’s featured local non-profit partner, North Shore Health Project, a group that works to alleviate
the health impacts of HIV/AIDS in our community, as well as providing LGBTQ+ services. The evening’s food vendor will offer pizza.
The 2021 summer music series is dedicated in memory of Harry Hintlian for his encouragement, generosity, and for making the
Meetinghouse a net zero building. For more information, a full schedule of upcoming concerts, and to sign up for the GMF
newsletter, visit

The band features 3rian King on lead vocals, guitar and keys; Renee Dupuis on lead vocals, keys and melodica; Nathan Cohen on
fiddle and trumpet; Joe Cardoza on upright bass; and Dennis Monagle on drums. In summer 2019, the band premiered their new
multimedia animated musical “Medusa,” a feminist retelling of the myth in a completely sold-out run at the Charles Hayden Planetarium,
Museum of Science, Boston. The team is currently adapting the play into a fully staged theater production.

Music on Meetinghouse Green, now in its sixth season, features nine free Friday evening concerts with great music, favorite foods from
local vendors, and benefits a different North Shore non-profit organization each week through free-will donations from the audience.
Concert goers bring lawn chairs and blankets to spread out across the spacious green. Performances are handicap accessible, parking
on the Green is limited to persons with disabilities only.

Founded in 2015, the Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation is dedicated to preserving the landmark building as a civic hub,
entertainment venue, and community center. In addition to its work to preserve the historic 1806 Meetinghouse, GMF is
currently raising funds to restore Meetinghouse Green to provide a safe and more flexible outdoor concert and event venue.

Thanks to our Sponsors all the series’ expenses, such as for the musicians, are pre-paid. 100% of the free-will donations go to
our non-profit community partners.

Tour de Greenbelt – Cycle for Land Conservation! 100/50/40/25-Mile Routes, September 18, 2021

Essex, MA:  For beginner riders to seasoned cyclists, Essex County Greenbelt’s annual Tour de Greenbelt – Cycle for Land Conservation offers a variety of courses to fit all abilities. The ride benefits Greenbelt’s local land conservation work, and cyclists will enjoy routes that wind through the scenic landscapes of Essex County.

Tour de Greenbelt offers four untimed routes, so cyclists can ride at their own pace: a century (100 miles) road ride, a half-century (50 miles) road ride, a shorter (25 miles) road ride, and a 40-mile Gravel Grinder that is suitable for cyclists with the proper bike, with off-road excursions into protected forests and reservations. Cyclists will pass more than 50 properties conserved by Greenbelt.

The event starts at Greenbelt’s beautiful Cox Reservation at 82 Eastern Avenue in Essex on September 18 at 9 am.  Post-ride festivities, including food and music under a tent, are also at Cox Reservation.

Riders can find details, pre-register and order a Tour de Greenbelt bike jersey at . Registration will also be open the morning of the event starting at 7:30am.

Many thanks to Tour de Greenbelt Title Sponsor Institution for Savings!  

Dinner at Fox Creek Tavern

We had dinner recently at Fox Creek Tavern in Ipswich. We enjoy taking that ride partly because the service is so friendly and the food delicious. It’s very easy to make online reservations and the atmosphere is welcoming and warm. It happened to be rainy and dreary that night and several family groups chose to enjoy their dinner there as well. As has become our habit, we thanked our server Kate for working and serving us that evening. I don’t know if that helps, but we figure it cannot hurt!

I tried an item new on the menu, General Tso’s Shrimp which was just spicy enough. Jim had the other item I considered for myself: Seafood Alfredo, which was jammed with seafood in a yummy alfredo sauce. I had decided to splurge and we also got the peach empanadas, which were rich and satisfying. We’ll be back!

Know What You Want

Cape Ann Home

When it comes time to buy a new home, you have to know what you want. For these homeowners, they knew they wanted to stay in the same neighborhood, on the same road if possible. And equally important, they knew what they didn’t want.
