Curbside pick up starting Monday, May 25th, 2020.

Father’s Day is June 21. Show your dad how much he means to you! It’s time to start thinking about gifts that would please the dads in your life. We have plenty of ideas for you.

Arts Abound realizes that this is a tough time for 2020 graduates since they are missing out on milestones and celebrations. We salute them all and wish them well as they head out into the world!

Please email us to order or to schedule a FaceTime session to shop since the governor of Massachusetts is keeping retail stores like ours closed for a bit longer. We are happy to ship or use curbside pickup.

Barry O’Brien Memorial Day for Essex Veterans

FOB Len Burgess sent me this link and information from Barry O’Brien


Good Morning Len.


Attached is the Video created by the Essex Veterans.


I would greatly appreciate it if you could get this posted on Good Morning Gloucester in time for memorial day. It would be great it it went up tonight and stayed up through Monday, with the idea of people being able to share it throughout the weekend.


Here is the copy that goes with it:

Memorial Day is a special holiday set aside to honor military personnel who’ve fought and died for our freedom. The veterans of Essex Massachusetts have created this virtual Memorial Day service  to carry on the tradition as safely as possible.

We hope that this will allow you to celebrate and remember with us, wherever you are. This is for all veterans and their families who have  given everything for our freedom.

This year, let us also remember those who fight for us every day during these unprecedented times of COVID-19.

Thank you for watching and sharing this virtual ceremony of honor with others.

If the file of the video, which is big, is too hard to deal with, the file can be downloaded directly from:

Thank you, Len!
