Inner City Boys and Girls Club Kids Scuba Dive at Stage Fort Park

Hi Joey,

My name is Cassie French and I work for the Boys and Girls Club of Boston. This past weekend, (July 22nd) the Jordan Club of Chelsea went scuba diving for the first time at Stage Fort Park in Gloucester. We have 7 kids from the Jordan Boys and Girls Club in Chelsea participating in this program. This as an unique opportunity for urban children to have the chance to learn to scuba dive.

Tomorrow’s Seafood Throwdown Postponed

This just in from Seafood Throwdown organizer Sandy Farrell:

We are disappointed to have to postpone this week’s SeaFood ThrowDown at the Farmer’s Market. The National Weather Service is predicting a rough day tomorrow with rain, thunder, and strong wind gusts possibly in store for us. With all of the planning and effort around the tents, electricity, and audio- not to speak of the chefs, judges, set-up crew and audience, it seems prudent to not make a last minute decision.

We have a second event scheduled for Thursday, August 23rd; I am hopeful that this match will occur then but need to reconfirm with everyone involved. Our thanks to the many people who had graciously agreed to donate their time to making this event possible, Classic Cooks, Sugar Magnolia’s, Cape Ann Fresh Catch, The “Fillet King”, Beacon Street Farm, our Youth Judge Team, and not least of all, Peter Van Ness of gimme We hope to see you in August.

And, Niki Bogin, Market Manager wants to remind you that, regardless of the weather, the Market itself will be open from 3pm-6:30pm, and the parking is always free on Market days.
