Paul Mitchell Memorial Golf Tournament
On Oct. 13, the Gloucester Post Office held its 11th annual Paul Mitchell Memorial Golf Tournament at Candlewood Golf Course.
This year we raised $1,500 to be donated to the monthly special needs kids dances held at the Gloucester Fraternity Club.
I would like to thank all the golfers and friends for playing or donating to the raffle.
I would like to thank the following merchants for their donations: Liquor Locker, Periwinkles restaurant, Sudbay Motors, Cape Pond Ice, Candlewood Golf Course, Crow’s Nest, Palazola’s Sporting Goods, Woodman’s restaurant, The Farm Bar and Grill, Jalapeno’s restaurant, Cape Ann Lanes, Charlie’s Place, Christine Asaro Jewelry, Danny Carter Golf Balls, and Marshall’s Farm Stand.
I would like to thank Mattie Fialho and Jayne Riley for all their hard work.
And a special thinks to Sheila Salah for all her help on Sunday.

Family of Otto ‘Ottie’ J. Pecunies Jr.
We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to those who were there for us during one of the most difficult times in our lives.
We would like to thank the Gloucester Fire Department for coming to our brother’s rescue and for talking him into going to the hospital. Kudos to Mike Chipperini and company — you guys did great!
Jimmy Chin, we can’t thank you enough for constantly checking on Ottie and for looking out for him as if he were family to you. God bless you.
A great big thank you goes out to the Addison Gilbert Hospital Emergency Room personnel as well as the ICU nurses and doctors for the care you gave our brother. Words cannot describe the care, compassion and love that was given to him. You people ALL went above and beyond your call of duty to make our dear brother as comfortable as possible; you even went as far as getting him a king sized bed! Bottom line — he was spoiled while in your care. God bless you all.
We can’t thank Eddie Collins enough for his very generous contribution and paying for the church service in its entirety. What a beautiful service it was. So many came; it meant the world to us. And, boy, oh boy, was he loved by so many. It was so overwhelming to see the love that people had for him. Unbelievable is all we can say!
Thank you Linda and Margaret for the readings; you did a fantastic job! We are sure that Ottie was looking from above and he would be proud of you ladies. You, too, John for reading our brother Peter’s words of remembrance (and your kind words, too). It was so very kind of you to do that. You are a good friend, Peter (and Ottie). Thank you so much.
Thank you goes out to my good friend Jeanette (from Jo-Ann) for getting to my house early and setting up the tables of food and drink. I couldn’t have done it without you, and it went off without a hitch.
Thank you to Scott Jr. and Trevor for walking Mama down the aisle and holding your heads high in pride for your uncle. Uncle was very proud of you boys on that day as he watched from heaven. I know he had that big grin on his face. You know that he loved you both from the bottom of his heart and he’s missing you just as much as you are missing him.
Thank you goes out to Scott Sr. for all of your help and support during this very hard time. Please keep in mind that you were more of a brother to Ottie than a brother-in-law, and he loved you like a brother.
And, I must not forget all of the many friends and relatives who called on the phone to pay their respects. Your show of support really meant a lot to us; it was greatly appreciated. Love to you all.
Lastly, I must not forget to thank Jimmy Greely for your professionalism and the compassion, love and caring you showed us during such a terrible time in our lives. You are one classy man and you have a whole lot of clout; it just comes natural to you. God bless you.
Finally, a great big thank you to all who may have thought of us during our loss — maybe said a little prayer, maybe sent a card, called or whatever it was — it all meant so much to us.
Peter and Marilyn Pecunies and their family, and Scott and Jo-Ann Curley and their family
