Joe Lucido Celebrates his 50th Year as a Gloucester Barber

This year my father, Joe Lucido, is celebrating his 50th (yes, that’s right, 50th) year as a barber in the City of Gloucester!!! He got his start at McLean’s Barber Shop on Main Street, which is now home to Lone Gull Coffee Shop.  He opened his own shop in 1976 on Washington Street next to your grandfather’s old store, Pat’s Center Grocery (named after your mother, of course!). He has been in his current location on Washington Street since 1985.

I would like to compile all of his customer’s favorite memories or stories of my dad as a barber and surprise him with a book. If your loyal readers could send me their favorite memory (or memories) it would be greatly appreciated.  Stories and memories can be sent to lucido48@yahoo.com

Thanks so much for your help.
