The Orlando and Asaro Families Say Thank You After Emotional Fisherman’s Memorial Service

We would like to extend a thank you to the Fishermen’s Memorial Service Committee members and all who attended for such a beautiful event at the Stacey Boulevard on Saturday, August 28th. Our family is grateful for the opportunity to convey with the community our history and sorrow for the loss of the ill fated Inca fishing vessel in 1944. Through sharing our story we found how our personal thread is so tightly woven into a preverbal quilt fabricated to comfort and protect the traditions so lovingly cherished by families of this city of fishermen.

Sincerely,

The Orlando and Asaro Families

3 Page St Gloucester On Trail Of Thai Royalty Plaque In Cambridge

Hi  Joey —

Folks visiting Harvard Square can now see a beautiful plaque on the monument, listing 3 Page Street, Gloucester on the Trail of Thai Royalty. Just 1 year ago, we held a local dedication at City Hall in Gloucester.  Completing the Trail has been a labor of love by Thais and Americans over many years. Here is a link to video of the Aug. 15th, 2010 statewide Trail dedication (I was MC) and a cultural event that followed on the grounds of the Longfellow National Museum in Cambridge that afternoon.  Enjoy!

Thanks for sharing that with us Amy
