Supporting a Good Cause

On Saturday, May 10th I had the opportunity to participate and speak at the “Touch a Truck” fundraiser at the O’Maley Middle School in Gloucester.  The event supports the annual Horribles Parade and draws hundreds of people from Cape Ann.  Those in attendance had the opportunity to take photos with and climb on some of the region’s most iconic vehicles, many of which will be on full display during this summer’s parade.  Some of those vehicles included fire trucks, police vehicles, dump trucks, backhoes, tractors, and a Coast Guard Cutter.

Also, new to the event was the Chowderfest.  People in attendance had the opportunity to participate and vote on what they thought was the best chowder.  Participants included the Cape Ann Brewery, Causeway, Sugar Magnolia’s, Stone’s Pub, and Latitude 43.  All the chowders provided were delicious, and offered a good representation of the region’s cuisine.  Congratulations to Cape Ann Brewery for winning Saturday’s Chowderfest competition.
