Espresso’s Restaurant, 116 East Main St., Gloucester will host a fundraiser on Monday evening, May 6, from 5 to 9 p.m., with a percentage of all proceeds donated to help pay for repairing and replacing the posts of Digital Dogtown, the vandalized Eagle Scout project that links hikers with smart phones to information about the history, geology, ecology and culture of Dogtown. Anyone with ideas for the best way to replace these (or thoughts on how it should be done differently, or why it should not be done at all) should send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, anyone wishing to donate to this effort, may send a check made out to “The Gloucester Fund” noting on the memo line “for Digital Dogtown” and mail it to Alan Davis, 2 Goodwin Road, Gloucester MA 01930.
