Hi kids:

Hope everyone is doing well.  Unfortunately, we need to continue trying to keep our city clean.  There is problem areas that need to be addressed.  There are some landlords and tenants that do not ever sweep their store front.  Most do and we appreciate the pride they take.

Time:                     09:00 – 10:00

Where:                 Starting at St. Peter’s Square

When:                   Saturday April 1, 2023

We have a request from Tom Schauer to help out on April 22, 2023 at Stage Fort Park.

Will keep all informed and look forward to seeing all.

Thank you in advance and take care.

From out friends at the Clean City Comission

From Ainsley:

The One Hour at a TIme Gang will be doing St. Peters Square.

Stay warm

Hi everyone,

 I know the weather feels like spring is light years away, but April will be here before we know it! You’re on this list because you’ve either hosted or expressed interest in hosting a clean up site for the Great Gloucester Clean Up. Last year’s sites were:

St. Peter’s Square

Washington Street/Train Station

Rocky Neck

Cripple Cove/State Fish Pier

Good Harbor Beach

Pavilion Beach

 It would be great to add a site in Annisquam or Lanesville to engage new neighborhoods this year. Due to Easter falling on the weekend of April 20th, I’d suggest we move the clean up activities to Saturday April 27th, and hope for a slightly warmer day.

Please let me know if you’d like to host a clean up this year, and where. If you know of other groups that may be interested in hosting a site or bringing a group, please pass this along or let me know. Additionally, if you know of restaurants that may be interested in donating breakfast or lunch snacks, please share that as well! One Ocean has generously offered to host a barbecue again, but we’ve got quite the crowd these days.

 Looking forward to working with all of you on warmer days!


Chair, Gloucester Clean City Commission



Saturday Clean Up

Dear One Hour at a Time,

Hi, I’m Christine Maney, a member of the City-Owned Cemetery Advisory Committee.

There is a clean-up of historic Cove Hill (Lane’s Cove) Cemetery this coming Saturday, the 29th starting at 10am.

Val Gilman suggested I contact you to ask if you’d help us gather Saturday volunteers by posting the below flyer on your social media outlets.

I thank you in advance as we all work together to keep Gloucester clean and special.

Best Regards,


Cove Hill (Lane’s Cove) Cemetery Clean-up -> Saturday, September 29, 2018 at 10am

Questions? Contact

There is a small privately-owned plot for parking near the cemetery, but once this is full, cars will have to be parked on Washington Street (no meters).

There is no bathroom facilities nor electricity.

There is a very nice coffee shop, The Cove Café, a 2-min walk from the cemetery, though no public bathrooms.

  Please bring work/gardening gloves, bug spray, and wear long pants and if you can, any of the following yard tools:

a rake, a gas or battery-operated weed whacker, loppers
