To receive a Gloucester Citizenship Awards is a very special honor and it is truly only bestowed upon the most deserving. At the award ceremony last night the love and positive energy had by family and friends for these outstanding Gloucester citizens was palpable. Melissa Cox presenting Donna’s award, and sharing a funy story about removing dead seagulls from the beach.
Here at GMG we are very proud of all the recipients, but especially, especially proud that our own Donna Ardizonni was nominated for her good work with the One Hour at a Time Gang. We are very proud too of our GMG super FOB and friend John McElhenny for his stellar job in spearheading the Burnham’s Field improvements and in turning it into a gorgeous new community playground, garden, and park.
On a personal note, I am also very proud that a very dear friend, Terry Sands, is one of this year’s honorees, for his extraordinary work directing (along with his co-director Mary Curtis) the fabulous Annisquam Village Players, for the past TWENTY- SEVEN YEARS!
Each winner was honored by a friend or colleague and it was wonderful to learn about the roles they have played in making our beautiful community all the more beautiful. Gloucester is a very special place to call home and it is people like this year’s 2014 Citizenship Award recipients that make our city profoundly unique and, simply awesome! Our most heartfelt congratulations to the 2014 Citizenship Award winners!!!
“It’s not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.”
Gabriel Garcia Márquez (1927-2014)
Columbian by birth, Márquez left the study of the law at the National University to take up a career as a journalist, ultimately working for newspapers in both Columbia and Venezuela before beginning to write novels and short stories in mid-life. His 1967 book One Hundred Years of Solitude was an almost immediate success, selling 30 million copies and garnering the 1972 Nobel Prize for Literature. Márquez is credited with launching the Magic Realism genre in which miraculous things happen to ordinary people in ordinary settings. A superstar in Latin American art circles, his leftist politics have often put him at odds with various regimes at the peril of his freedom. Although his fame allowed him to facilitate talks between the Columbian government and M-19 guerillas, his friendship with Fidel Castro and his criticism of US interventionist policies made him persona non grata in the States.

Archaeologists have dated instruments back at least 37,000 years. They figure the first ones were likely made long before that and were probably flutes and drums. Suffice it to say that when we hear and feel drums, most of us react instinctively by moving — even if it’s just a little bit — and our consciousness changes a little bit too. This Saturday, you can feel what I’m talking about at Gloucester’s UU Meetinghouse when we present ENTRAIN. In case you haven’t guessed, it’s the perfect venue to experience drums for lots of reasons. Built in 1806, it’s the oldest standing church building in Gloucester; it’s made of wood; the acoustics are spectacular!
