The GENEROUS GARDENERS came out in force this morning to finish planting the tulips on the Boulevard. Nobody loves Cape Ann more than this group of women organized by Susan Kelly and our super volunteer Antonietta Calabrese. We all enjoy their work all over Gloucester doing the summer and especially in the Spring when the beds burst with hope for the season to come. The tulips are all in, the prayers are said, thankful for all the women and men who made it possible.
These women and men are all extraordinary, many volunteer so many other places too, all for the love of this wonderful community we live in, Cape Ann.
You too can show your love for Cape Ann by ordering a Cape Ann License Plate today at Lovecapeann.com
GENEROUS GARDENERS FOR A TERRIFIC 2018, LOOKING FORWARD TO SPRING 2019!!!
