Last night many friends of the Schooner Ardelle gathered to commemorate a decade-long partnership, and to celebrate the beauty and impact of the Schooner Ardelle for Cape Ann, Maritime Gloucester, Burnham Boat Building and the Essex Shipbuilding Museum.
Senator Bruce Tarr presented citations to Maritime Gloucester, Essex Shipbuilding Museum and Harold Burnham and praised all three for their contribution to our maritime history.
Mayor Sefatia Romero Theken also stopped by to present a citation on behalf of a grateful city.
Music was provided by Daisy Nell & Capt Stan and their merry band. An old fashion potluck was enjoyed by all.
