MAC TENNIS PLAYERS RALLY FOR THE CURE
MANCHESTER, MA—July 21, 2015. On Friday evening, October 21, the MAC
Manchester Athletic Club hosted a Rally for the Cure Adult Tennis Social. Rally is a
grass roots program that works to spread awareness about breast cancer through
organized golf, tennis and social events.
This year marks the second year the MAC has rallied against breast cancer with over 70
tennis players and pros participating and over $2,000 raised.
Since its start in 1996, the Rally program has touched over 2.7 million people with the
important message that early detection and effective treatment saves lives. In addition to

Jack o’lantern traditions. There’s this – our annual amateur foray
and then this public art tableau that we stop for each year, just past 370 Main Street, Gloucester (before the Crow’s Nest heading into downtown Gloucester)
Excerpt from The Pumpkin, ca.1846 Thanksgiving poem
Oh, fruit loved of boyhood! the old days recalling,
When wood-grapes were purpling and brown nuts were falling!
When wild, ugly faces we carved in its skin,
Glaring out through the dark with a candle within!
When we laughed round the corn-heap, with hearts all in tune,
Our chair a broad pumpkin,—our lantern the moon,
Telling tales of the fairy who travelled like steam,
In a pumpkin-shell coach, with two rats for her team!

Salem is always an interesting walk around…although I would suggest you wait until after the “Halloween festivities” have ended. One of the most interesting spots is The Burying point . It is the oldest burial ground in the city of Salem and the final resting place for many from a dark chapter in Salem’s history. It’s the home to at least one accused witch, Mary Corey, a sinister player in the Salem Witch Trials. Also buried here is Justice John Hathorne, an ancestor of Nathaniel Hawthorne and one of the judges in the Witchcraft Court. As we walked through the cemetery it was interesting to see the notes and flowers left by the families of the deceased even hundreds of years later!
Surfari Stand Up Paddle and Surf shared this photo taken yesterday off of Gloucester….with this caption “So there have been confirmed GrimSweeper sightings from @dontfearthesweeper down in Florida. Today he made an appearance in Gloucester, Ma to slide a couple waves.”
Totally creepy and cool at the same time! And, check out Surfari here…one of the Schrafft boys’ favorite stores for sure (and one of their mom’s favorites too while we’re on the subject).
I mean seriously. If you want to have warm fuzzies about the town that you live in, move to Rockport and Trick-or-Treat along Main Street and down on Bearskin Neck.
That’s exactly what we did yesterday afternoon. From 4:00 -6:00 shop owners opened their doors to trick-or-treaters and the town was hopping. While my boys go to school out of town, they are blessed to have friends from the neighborhood, from soccer, from baseball, from sailing, from hockey, and even some from school that they’ve met while growing up in what we’ve always referred to as “God’s Country.” It was so fun watching the boys chit-chat with friends from all different corners of their lives while strolling along downtown.
Take a lovely fall afternoon (well, at least until the rain came), adorable children in Halloween costumes, gracious shop owners/employees, friendly faces, some good laughs, and one of the most beautiful backdrops in the world….and you get Halloween on the Neck. Throw in dinner at Top Dog….and it doesn’t get any better.
So, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to everyone who made it possible to create such fun memories for so many children.
Here are just a few photos….including my own little Adam Levine from Maroon 5. He kills me.
Me on the other hand would be thinking “Yikes! I wonder what poisonous toxins it is releasing through it’s tentacles and how long before the guy dies.”

Jim and I would like to report on our trip to Dogtown. We went with the specific idea to test out the Dogtown app on my phone against paper maps for hikers. We’d like to share our findings. EGuideDogtown on the iTunes app store.
We had a great experience at Cape Ann Giclee with James. Would like to share props on that.
Pat Dalpiaz: Shoutout to my cousin Cathy Warde, along with Sari Rochford, Janet Powers, Kate Girard, and Wendy Hashley: Gloucesterites who will be running in the NYC marathon next week!!
