Some Then and Now — pat morss

It’s been slow recently for our waterfront and wildlife activity, so here are some photos that didn’t “fit the theme” a while back, followed by a few from our recent walks.

Other fishermen faced more challenging conditions for casting.
And came prepared, whatever the weather.
Just recently, a relaxed Northern Mockingbird greeted us at eye level, Niles Pond.

Fundraiser For Scottie Mac At The Beauport Hotel Thursday

We are holding a Fundraiser to support our good friend and resident DJ aboard our Beauport Cruiselines Dinner Cruiseship, Scottie Mac! We need to help bring Scottie home from Jamaica where he suffered serious life threatening injuries, which has also caused tremendous stress and  hardship on Scottie’s Family. Please join us this Thursday evening, January 19th, at Beauport Hotel from 6-9 PM to help raise much needed funds and to keep the positive energy moving forward for Scottie.

There will be Complimentary Bite’s and a Cash Bar. We will also have  DJ Dana Cox (Scotties Main Man) who will be donating his time and talent by spinning Scottie’s Mac’s favorite tunes to keep you entertained. The highlight will be a Silent Raffle with great prizes to include a Flat Screen TV, a Brand New Bicycle, Gift Cards to Seaport Grille and 1606 Restaurant & Bar, Beauport Cruiseline’s Tix, and Beauport Hotel overnight stays – just to name a few! The Grand Raffle Prize will be a “VIP Fiesta Weekend Hotel Stay & Greasy Pole Viewing Package”, which includes a Friday and Saturday Overnight Stay at Beauport Hotel on Fiesta Weekend with “VIP” Reserved Seating on on Friday, Saturday and Sunday night right there on Beauport Hotel’s Sunset Terrace – The best seat’s on the water to view the Greasy Pole!

All proceeds from this event will go directly to Scottie Mac and his family!

We hope you’ll join us as part of this amazing community of Gloucester and Cape Ann to help Bring Scottie Home!

Our Stately City Hall

It’s not generally advertised as a museum, but perhaps our City Hall should be described as such. There is a wealth of history and artwork on display throughout City Hall, some small and some larger than life. Next time you are there, maybe take some extra time to really look around. Our City is certainly blessed.
