Lisa Smith of Cape Ann TV won a national award for her report on Gloucester’s Giant Lobster Trap Tree and Menorah which will soon be linked on the Gloucester HarborWalk marker #32 for the temple.

The new building was designed by Maryann Thompson. Learn more about her design.

She was part of a fantastic symposium at Cape Ann Museum this year. I’ll add that link, too.
