If you are a lot owner or have family members interred at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery you are welcome to attend our Annual Meeting.
We currently have openings on our Board of Trustees and are actively seeking qualified volunteers who have time and energy to commit to keeping our cemetery going.

I appreciate your help on this.  I cannot seem to get it into the newspaper and it receives more traction on your page.

Restorative Yoga is a relaxing and nurturing practice that allows the body and mind to relax and well, restore.  All you need to do is sit or lie on a mat with your body supported by bolsters, blocks and blankets.  I do all the work.  No energy or expertise required for you.  The benefits of the practice include better sleep, less anxiety, gentle stretching of the body especially the chest and shoulders, etc.

Linda was was trained in level I Rest. Yoga in the Judith Lasater tradition by Ann Biasetti in Saratoga Springs.  She will soon and be attending a level II training session in the spring of 2020 to allow for more poses and therapeutic possibilities.

Here is a link to a nice description of what Restorative Yoga is. 

I hope you will try…

Hi Joey

~350lb ocean sunfish with a large shark bite out of its back. Amazing it survived the attack and is still swimming offshore in 59 degree water. The ocean sunfish (also called a mola mola) is one of the heaviest bony fishes in the world and can grow up to 2000 lbs.

Cape Ann Masons’ Open House Saturday, October 19, 2019

Cape Ann Masons’ Open House

Saturday, October 19, 2019

Once again, the Gloucester Masonic Lodge is hosting an Open House, known also as “Square and Compasses Day,” on Saturday, October 19, from 9 AM until 3 PM.  If you’ve ever wondered who the Freemasons are, whether they are the descendants of the Knights Templars, or what the inside of their building looks like, here’s your chance to find out.  The event is held semiannually to help the public gain a better understanding of what Freemasonry is, and the positive impact that it has on its members, their families, and community.  Members will provide tours of the building, talk about Freemasonry’s history, discuss its rituals, signs, and symbols, and explain what they do.


The Lodge, known to its members as the Tyrian-Ashler-Acacia Lodge reflecting the former names of three Lodges which are now one, is located at 27 Eastern Avenue in Gloucester.  Officers and members of the Lodge will be present to welcome visitors and prospective members alike.  Come and join us and see the many different items from around the world as well as local items not previously seen by the public, pulled from the dusty safe deposit box. Paul Revere and his silver work, items of antiquity from the 1770’s and 1800’s, gavels made from the wood of the USS Constitution, and from King Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem. Gordon Gravelese, Master of The Tyrian-Ashler-Acacia Lodge said, “Gloucester’s Lodge has the distinction of being one of the oldest Masonic lodges in North America and will be displaying many of these items for our open house.  For men looking for ways to give back to their community and world, while enjoying the benefits of a first-rate fraternal organization, Masonry is a great place to look.”


Freemasons trace their roots to the stonemason guilds that built Europe’s cathedrals and castles during the early part of the last millennium.  As construction of these buildings declined, they began accepting members from outside their trade.  These new members, influenced by the “Age of Enlightenment,” transformed the organization from a group for builders to one focused on developing the character of its members.  Freemasonry was formally organized in London, England in 1717. In 1733 it was formally organized in Massachusetts, making it the oldest Masonic group in the Western Hemisphere,

and the third oldest in the world.

Freemasonry, the world’s oldest and largest fraternity, seeks to bring together men of every country, religion, race, background, and opinion in order to develop the bonds of friendship between them.  Through a large variety of North American Masonic philanthropies, approximately $3,000,000 is given to charity every day, 70% of which benefits the general public.  During its symbolic initiation ceremony, members are encouraged to value high principles, ethics, and morals and to live their lives accordingly.  By “making good men better,” Freemasonry positively benefits its members, their families and local communities.  Freemasonry in Massachusetts is comprised of 32,000 members in more than 230 different lodges throughout the Commonwealth.
