A message from Meat and Sweet Foods At 23 East Main St

23 East Main St

Gloucester Ma

Can you post this? And when can we come on the show?

I just wanted to thank everyone who came out yesterday (and the previous 3 Saturdays) to support our
“Meat and Sweet Foods BBQ Saturday”.
We open at 10am
We sold out well before 2PM
We make 48 racks of ribs each Saturday. They sold-out by 11:15am.
I also smoke 6 briskets, 8 pork butts, 50 lbs of chicken. I have over 20 years bbq experience, but all only 1 man.
I am a solo Pitmaster and work 3 smokers for 24 to prepare each week.
When we sell out, we sell out.
I am so appreciative of the support we received so far. It has been amazing.
See you Saturday, but get there early!
Keep Smokin’
Doug

Early Horribles From Jackie Bennett

The Horribles parade began as a neighborhood event. The kids in the neighborhood would gather at the Riverdale Community Center on Stanwood St for the parade . I don’t remember exactly where we marched to. I think there were prizes in various categories. This must have been about 1956 or 1957. Santa and a dancer. Happy 4th.

The Friends of the Sawyer Free Library want to thank all our wonderful “friends” who donated, sorted or purchased books over these past 10 years since we opened for business.

Please note, that as now, book donations will no longer be accepted.

Here are a few key dates to keep in mind:

Mid -August Book Shop will cease operations until the SFL reconstruction is completed in 2025.

Please stop by the Book Shop to stock up on your summer reading while we still have an abundant supply of “gently used books”.We appreciate your many years of support and look forward to seeing you in…
