This is The JJ Nicastro Foundation’s 10th Annual Fiesta Thursday bash and we are planning the best one yet! We are switching things up a bit this year and Mile Marker One is gracious enough to host the 2017 Fiesta Kickoff Bash. The $10 cover charge goes to the foundation so we need to pack the house!

John John Nicastro contacted multiple bands and DJ’s and came across the electric Pulse of Boston! They are bringing a 6 piece band consisting of 3 vocalists, keyboards, drums, guitars and straight up groovey tunes. We will hear a little bit of everything that night but one thing is certain, the dancing will not stop!

Each year the foundation dispurses thousands of dollars in scholarships to Gloucester students for athletic and school activity fees. The only way The JJ Nicastro Foundation can assist these students is through fundraisers like these. So please, come out, bring your dancing shoes and a dancing partner (or 5) and let’s rock at Mile Marker One.

Connor Garvey and Putnam Smith
Public · Hosted by Old Sloop
Friday at 7:30 PM – 10 PM

Connor Garvey has the amiable presence of an entertainer, the lyrical depth of a poet, and the enchantment of a storyteller. First time listeners often are drawn to Garvey’s engaging performance style, accomplished musicianship, and memorable melodies. But his lyrics project a depth and sincerity that allow the observant listener to find meaning beyond the catchy hook.

Putnam Smith could be an old-world troubadour fresh from the 19th Century. After all, he lives in a log cabin, plays his Grandfather’s banjo, and prints up the jackets to his CDs on an antique letterpress. Yet this rootsy multi-instrumentalist songwriter (he also writes and performs on guitar, mandolin, fretless banjo, and piano), steeped as he is in Appalachian traditions, is very much a storyteller for the modern age.

Clean Harbor Fundraiser at Mile Marker One

MAY
4th

6 PM – 9 PM

https://www.facebook.com/pierave

Details
We are proud to announce the Cape Ann Maritime Partnership (CAMP), a partnership between NOAA Marine Debris Program members, USCG members, Maritime Gloucester, Seaside Sustainability, Gloucester’s Clean City Commission members, and One Ocean One Love Shop – a local, conservation-minded retail shop. We created this organization to help raise funding to purchase and maintain innovative technologies that we plan to install in Gloucester harbor this summer to assist in collecting marine debris. More specifically, the Seabin and the Marine Skimmer. These technologies will collect marine pollution 24/7, all year round. We also plan to use data collected from the debris to help educate the local community as well as tourists visiting Cape Ann.

We invite you to join us at Mile Marker One’s bridge deck on Thursday, May 4th 2017 from 6:00 – 9:00 PM. Proceeds from this event will help assist with the funding of our initiative to help clean up our local harbors. This event will be free of charge and open to the public. Fund raising will be possible thanks to Mile Marker One’s generous donation of 10% of all food and beverage sales. We will also be hosting a 50/50 raffle, as well as lots of great raffle items that have been donated from local establishments. Last but not least, we will be enjoying music donated by the local reggae band Pier Ave! Hope to see you all there!
