Thank You Notes

Country Cupboard Fair

On behalf of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Gloucester, I would like to thank the community for their support of our recent Country Cupboard Fair held on Saturday, Nov. 17. It was our most successful fair ever. The parish hall and sanctuary were packed with people purchasing our own hand-made crafts, vintage jewelry, Vermont artisan cheeses, thrift shop treasures and an assortment of cookies at our first Cookie Walk, all for the benefit of outreach work St. John’s does in the community. Particular thanks go to Shaw’s Market on Railroad Avenue for their generous donation of fish for our fish chowder luncheon and to the Gloucester Daily Times for helping to get the word out about the fair. We at St. John’s were delighted to welcome so many new visitors to our church and parish community. We invite anyone and everyone to join us each Sunday at 8 and 10:30 a.m. To learn more about St. John’s services and outreach activities, please visit our web site at www.stjohnsgloucester.org.

Scrap

metal

drive

On Saturday, Nov. 10, the Phyllis A. Marine Association held a scrap metal drive to raise money for the nonprofit organization.

As a 501c3 organization whose mission is “to promote the history of gillnetting in Gloucester, MA, through the display and preservation of the fishing vessel Phyllis A.,” we survive on donations and the scrap metal drive has been a wonderful opportunity for us to raise money.

We want to thank Kevin and Merl Hunt of North Shore Scrap Steel for providing us with the empty Dumpster and removing a full Dumpster. Charlie Foster graciously allowed us to use his property for the drive and his son-in-law even cooked us a barbecue lunch! Boots Parsons helped to organize the whole project at Foster’s.

And a special thank you to Joey C. at GoodMorningGloucester.com for getting the word out about the drive!

To all who added to the scrap metal drive, we thank you!

The Phyllis A. Marine Association
