Kathy Chapman Captures Gloucester Sky During The Western MA Tornado Night


Hi Joey,

It was great (finally) meeting you last night and checking out the new gallery! Congrats and good luck with it! I will stop by often.

Here’s a picture I took Wednesday night of Gloucester Harbor while the deadly tornados ripped through Western MA. Very weird light that night.

Best, Kathy

Surfcasting For Families- Volunteers needed

Hi Joe,

The Trustees of Reservations are looking for a few qualified fishermen to come teach newcomers the basics of surfcasting. They’ll be teaching people who come for the Saturday Morning Beginner Surfcasting program for families that runs every Saturday Morning in June at Crane’s Beach in Ipswich. If you can help spread the word, it would be much appreciated!
