Greg and Gold Star Mom Anita Coullard Dziedzic present a $2000 check to Cape Ann Veterans Services- honoring her son Sgt David J Coullard by helping returning veterans

Anita sharing a photo of her son with Adam Curcuru, Director Cape Ann Veterans Services

Anita’s son David served in the Marine Corps and was killed in action on August 1, 2005. She and her husband, Greg,  help returning veterans. They spoke about her son and some of the projects they’ve supported. Good Morning Gloucester readers may remember Anita’s joy in finding a Paul Frontiero “Art, Rocks!”, and donating a flag to the Boulevard. Anita’s mom was born in Gloucester in 1917; her Uncle was dear friends with Pauline Bresnahan’s father.

Adam Curcuru and the veterans office volunteers discussed projects that the Cape Ann Veterans Services is involved with. Stories were shared and a few tears. It was all very inspiring. We passed around a copy of the children’s book that is going to all the elementary school classes for Veterans Day.  We spent time admiring the Welcome Home to Cape Ann Veterans Gift Packages, a program “designed to show Cape Ann’s appreciation for our returning veterans and let them know that Cape Ann supports them in this process of transitioning out of the military and back into our community.”


With or without the Gloucester family connections, I believe that Anita and Greg are so impressed by the Cape Ann Veterans Services that they would be delighted to work together anyhow. Learn more about David, and Anita and Greg’s projects Mutts Mending Military  is another organization they’ve supported. How nice that Cape Ann Veterans Services is included.

I learned that the 2016 Welcome Home to Cape Ann Veterans we left the light on for you Gift Packages were made possible by the Cape Ann Veterans Services, Gloucester MA Elks Lodge #892, and the Manchester Athletic Club, and that they are made extra homey special because they are stuffed with support information and gift certificates from so many local donors, businesses and organizations:

Gloucester Game Changer- Shit Just Got Real In The Asian Fusion Dining Scene In Our Beloved Gloucester Massachusetts.

I could go on and on but let me just shut my yap and post some pictures and let them do the talking  (video at 8PM)

Chef Enx studied under Roy Yamaguchi and if any of you know a little something about Roy Yamaguchi you know the guy basically brought Asian fusion to where it is today.  Based on what I ate and saw last night it looks like Chef Enx took what he learned at Roy’s and brought it to a whole ‘nother level.
