Thank You Notes

Gloucester Daily Times

---- — Plant donations

The Clean City Initiative would like to thank the Gloucester Civic and Garden Council (GCGC) for its generous donation of plants and materials for the Good Harbor Beach and Main Street gardens.

The GCGC has been donating to the Good Harbor garden for many years now. I planted this garden when the Carry In Carry Out program was implemented in 2002, with the hope of when you see a beautiful garden to the entrance of the beach you will respect our beach.

Our Main Street garden is only two years old and the GCGC has donated generously.

We would also like to thank all the wonderful helpers at Wolf Hill Garden Center for picking fantastic choices for plants.

We would like to thank Art Haven for its workshop painting rocks with the children that we proudly displayed in our garden and throughout the downtown area.

We would like to thank all the residents and visitors to our beautiful city that stop and give such wonderful words of praise for the garden as we go about our work.

Thanks to St. Ann School

We would like to thank the St. Ann School PTO and the families for their support and generosity. It made a very difficult time easier.

What a loss to our community!

I would like to thank Donna and Sal LoGrasso of LoGrasso’s Bistro in Rockport for donating a three-course Italian dinner and dessert for 50 people to the Rockport Council on Aging for Italian night at the Senior Center. We are very fortunate to have generous business support for our senior citizens.
