Gloucester Meetinghouse

1)  On Saturday, February 16th the Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation presents a Free Family Movie Day at the Cape Ann Community Cinema from 10:00am to 4:00pm with games, prizes, face-painting and a pizza lunch.  There are two feature movies, the animation thriller ‘Spider-Man, Into the Spider-Verse’ at 11:30am and the hilarious Disney sequel ‘Wreck-It Ralph 2’ at 2:00pm.  The fun starts with refreshments and making decorated indoor snowmen from white socks at 10:00am.  Community partners Maritime Gloucester and Pathways for Children will participate with presentations, displays and program information. The movies and activities are best-suited for kids 6-12 years old.  Admission is free for children and their parents or adult guardians (no drop-offs please) thanks to the sponsors of the Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation 2018-19 Winter Series as a special mid-winter treat.  Free-will donations to Pathways for Children to support their terrific early education programs are encouraged.  Popcorn with additional treats and refreshments will be available at the theater counter all day.  At 4:00pm we will take a short walk up to visit the historic (1806) Gloucester Meetinghouse for a brief educational tour, demonstration of the pipe-organ, and ringing of the Paul Revere bell. The Cape Ann Community Cinema is located above Mystery Train at 21 Main Street.  More information at

(2)   On Saturday, March 2nd at 3:30pm the Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation will host a concert by the Albany Pro Musica with Camerata Coral from Puerto Rico in a choral program called ‘The Americas, Land of Many Cultures.’ Making their first appearance in Massachusetts, the combined choral groups of Albany Pro Musica and Camerata Coral will present a stirring and inspirational concert in Spanish as well as English with distinctive harmonies and thrilling rhythms that will transport you in a journey celebrating the diversity, multiculturalism, inclusiveness, and acceptance: the values that hold the Americas strong. The program will consist of carefully selected works from the best contemporary composers in the western hemisphere. With the ravages of hurricanes and political discord that afflicts all countries in our hemisphere, this concert provides the beauty of classical choral music that can overcome turmoil, warm the heart, and provide hope.  Tickets: $45 Preferred seats, $30 General, $10 Students, Under 12 free (note: no one turned away for lack of funds) available at the door and on-line.  The Gloucester Meetinghouse is located on the green at the corner of Middle and Church Streets with accessible side entrance at #10 Church Street.  More information and advance ticket purchases at

Juvenile Bald Eagle at Parker River and Pats logo at sunset

Since I get very nervous on game day, went over to Parker River and saw this beautiful eagle. Thought about last year’s Superbowl game and there was this eagle, another omen that our PATS were going to win.

Truck Day is here

As the Patriots get set to return home as Super Bowl champs, the Red Sox are getting set to start their World Series defense. Monday is “Truck Day” in Boston.

The Red Sox equipment truck will start loading up at Fenway Park around 7 a.m. and depart for the team’s Spring Training facilities in Fort Myers, Florida around noon.

The truck will depart from Fenway Park on Van Ness Street, led by a flat-bed truck carrying Wally the Green Monster, his sister Tessie, and Fenway Ambassadors who will be handing out JetBlue collectible baseball card schedules filled with prizes and tossing soft Red Sox baseballs to fans.

For the 21st straight year, Milford native Al Hartz will be behind the wheel for the 1,480-mile trip. He’ll be hauling the following baseball equipment and supplies down to Fort Myers:

  • 20,400 baseballs
  • 1,100 bats
  • 200 batting gloves
  • 200 batting helmets
  • 320 Batting Practice tops
  • 160 white game jerseys
  • 300 pairs of pants
  • 400 t-shirts
  • 400 pairs of socks
  • 20 cases of bubble gum
  • 60 cases of sunflower seeds

“Truck Day” has been a tradition in Boston since 2003, signaling the unofficial start of Spring Training.

Red Sox Spring Training will officially begin on February 14, in Fort Myers, Florida

Hell has frozen over

HELL, Mich. (WILX) – You know the old saying, “It’s a cold day in Hell.” Well, it’s been more like a cold week in Hell… Hell, Michigan that is.

Businesses in the small town about 15 miles northwest of Ann Arbor are closed down for the next couple of days.

It’s so cold there that people are using snowmobiles to get to an emergency warming center at the local saloon.

The people living there, however, love all the cliches about their small town.

Ladies Night at the 525

Unbelievable deals on fabulous food & wine. Come see [and taste] why Ladies Night is so fun at the 525. Try out our new winter menu, all of your favorites, plus seasonal specials.

Sunday afternoon at Wingaersheek Beach

My daughter Ericka and her cute dog Freddy came up on Sunday afternoon.  We went to Wingaersheek Beach.  It was really pretty and lots of people walking around.  Love the golden retrievers taking a swim.

From Ainsley:

The One Hour at a TIme Gang will be doing St. Peters Square.

Stay warm

Hi everyone,

 I know the weather feels like spring is light years away, but April will be here before we know it! You’re on this list because you’ve either hosted or expressed interest in hosting a clean up site for the Great Gloucester Clean Up. Last year’s sites were:

St. Peter’s Square

Washington Street/Train Station

Rocky Neck

Cripple Cove/State Fish Pier

Good Harbor Beach

Pavilion Beach

 It would be great to add a site in Annisquam or Lanesville to engage new neighborhoods this year. Due to Easter falling on the weekend of April 20th, I’d suggest we move the clean up activities to Saturday April 27th, and hope for a slightly warmer day.

Please let me know if you’d like to host a clean up this year, and where. If you know of other groups that may be interested in hosting a site or bringing a group, please pass this along or let me know. Additionally, if you know of restaurants that may be interested in donating breakfast or lunch snacks, please share that as well! One Ocean has generously offered to host a barbecue again, but we’ve got quite the crowd these days.

 Looking forward to working with all of you on warmer days!


Chair, Gloucester Clean City Commission
