FRI March 7, 5:30pm - Frederick Dillon,
talks about his new book, Beauty
Karen MacLean is a blue collar woman in her fifties who has risen in the business world to the point she gets to bury the extraneous divisions a New York mergers-and-acquisitions firm spits out. Karen hates shutting down factory floor guys like her father, but the M&A outfit has promised she can have a company of her own, to run, once she buries her last body, the last fish processor in a hard-times Massachusetts fishing port. She shows up in town, learns she's going to be canned when she gets back to New York, and decides to buy and run the old plant. She has skills and resolve and wins the help of townspeople, including a roughly charming fisherman, but the rest of it ain't easy.

Salminen typically has wait lists for his workshops and so we are lucky to still have space available.

Cultural Center Still Under Construction
Geoffrey Richon & Co. is still in the process of converting the main floor bathroom into a wheelchair lift, installing a ramp and new entrance to the lower level studio, and creating accessible bathrooms in place of the two small downstairs bathrooms. The work will take place between now and April 1. Limited use of the building will continue, with Sunday morning T'ai Chi, Tuesday evening drumming with Mamadou, Fishtown Players' rehearsals, and a few special events. Thanks to the City of Gloucester Community Preservation Committee and Community Development Block Grant program for financing the lion's share of this project.
And thanks to all of you who have contributed toward the Coolidge gift match - we are well on our way to retiring our mortgage debt by our target date of May 1. Keep those contributions coming!
