Guests of the Action Inc. shelter were fitted with brand new shoes this month, thanks to the generosity of Mark Adrian store owner Adam Farber and shoe company NAOT. Along with securing a donation from NAOT of 100 pairs of new shoes, Adam and his team also collected gently-worn shoes at their store in downtown Gloucester. Each guest was then personally fitted by Mark Adrian staff at an event held at the Action Inc. main office.

GHS boys soccer banquet at the Elks at Bass Rocks and booster raffle winners

Beautiful event January 3 sponsored by the GHS boys soccer boosters, with delicious food from the Causeway and great soccer swag! Graduating seniors acknowledged their amazing play off and final soccer year as bittersweet. Congratulations to the players and coaches and thanks to the parent volunteers, especially Chris Mac. Coaches for three teams are: Armando Marnoto, Drew Sidell, Marcus Trejo, and Jason Rutkauskus.

From Nick Curcuru Nov 6 article in the Gloucester Daily Times:  “Gloucester finishes up the season at 12-5-2, its highest win total and deepest postseason run since 2007, when the team advanced to the Division 1 North Quarterfinals with an identical 12 wins. Despite the tough ending, Marnoto had nothing but positive things to say about his squad. “This is a special group, one of my favorites and they were a pleasure to coach,” he said. “I’m really happy with the season these boys put out. These seniors took their lumps when they were freshmen and kept improving to end up as one of the final eight teams in the bracket.- Gloucester Daily Times]
