Another business affected by this horrible virus

Sherry’s Corner Cafe, we are so sad to hear this.  We always loved going there.  Please try to support our local businesses.

Dear Family, Friends (old and new), and customers….
It’s with a heavy heart that I find myself writing this post. As everyone knows 2020 was one of the hardest years for so many of us in all ways, especially those who have a small business. We hoped here at Sherry’s that 2021 would be off to a better start, but that clearly is not the case. With little help from the government at both State and Federal levels and Covid-19 regulations becoming stricter (and sometimes illogical), we have decided to close our doors for good. A year ago today we never would have thought this would have been the case but the pandemic has taken an extreme toll on us.
I am grateful for all the customers who have supported us along the way, with many becoming more like friends and family. I am grateful for my staff who have worked so hard and adapted to the crazy changes we now find our new-world norms. And most importantly, I am grateful for each and every one of you who have walked through our doors and welcomed us to the Magnolia community. Starting tomorrow, January 19th, 2021, we will be closing our doors effective immediately.
Thank you again for the past three years. You have all humbled me with your kind words and friendships over the past 3 years that I am forever grateful.
-Sherry & Chris ❤️

Martin Luther King Birthday

About twenty 22 years ago, I was working at the graduate program at Wheelock College. We had a guest speaker coming in to talk to the students.  As I was making the plane and transportation reservations, looked  at her name her name was Professor Christine King Ferris.   As we talked on the phone she did tell me she was Martin Luther King, Jr. brother.  What an honor.  She was very kind and gave me a MLK calendar and a book and also signed the book.  I love the saying on the cover, A DAY ON… NOT A DAY OFF.

Revised MLK Day

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: rev. January 15, 2021


The Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation Presents the Fifth Annual Celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day called Listening to Generations of Local Voices.  The online event will premiere on Monday, January 18, 2021 at 2 p.m. on the Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation YouTube channel and will be available anytime afterwards on YouTube in case you miss the premiere. 

The presentation is a collage assembled from videos of Cape Ann residents interwoven with excerpts from speeches by Dr. King and John Lewis.  It will honor MLK, who lived his beliefs that all people are created equal and that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.  It will also remind us as John Lewis did, to remain persistent and continue to listen to younger generations as our country faces systemic racism. 

We hope the video will inspire everyone to imagine what it must be like to be in the shoes of “the other” and to be humbled by what we don’t know.  More information is available at where you will find a link to the video, or simply go to YouTube and search for “Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation, MLK Day Celebration 2021.”
