Fishtown is back!!!

his heaven-sent comedy takes southern charm, infuses it with a pinch of hellfire and a dollop of damnation. A timid Catholic spinster Margaret (Jessie Sorrells) politely invites door-to-door evangelist Melissa (Lauren Ashly Suchecki) into her home, much to the chagrin of her ornery sister Mary (Kristine Burke). A plan to ambush the earnest ‘guest’, with the aid of their unsuspecting parish priest (Jay DiPrima), sets the scene for a theological smackdown about religion, faith and morals. This comedy both crackles with wit and brims with emotion.

Good afternoon Joey:

I was hoping you might be able to share information on an upcoming screening of the RACE TO NOWHERE on Good Morning Gloucester. This truly is a remarkable film for all parent and educator of children of all ages…  we really want to get the word out on it.

RACE TO NOWHERE (PR-13), the acclaimed film about the epidemic of unhealthy academic stress among students across America, is coming to Manchester, MA!  Presented by the Manchester Memorial Elementary School, and open to the general public, it is a must see for parents and teachers of all ages along with anyone interested in learning about what’s going on in our schools and to our kids. Race to Nowhere is a film that calls us to challenge current assumptions on how to best prepare the youth of America to become healthy, bright and contributing citizens.   Join us for a screening of film about redefining success for ourselves and our families.

Hello Colleagues and Friends,
I am contacting you to ask a favor for my students who are in final days of the Gloucester U after school class – Save the Elephants – a study in international trafficking of poached ivory.
We are conducting a social media/email educational blitz of our friends and family to shed light on the issue of elephant poaching.  These students learned that an elephant is killed every 15 minutes and at this rate it is estimated the remaining 450,000 elephant could be extinct in less than 15 years.  They have studied the issue for nine weeks and were determined to take action.
They have created this website and we all agreed to send their website link to at least five friends so they in turn would email or post it to five more.  This is our attempt in using 21st century tools to reach out to as many people as possible.
We hope you like our website and that you will become as passionate about this cause as we all are.
Please forward this to as many people as you can, so we can raise awareness.
We all thank you,
Eric Leigh and a dedicated handful of students.
