Essex Happening 3.23.12
HEADING HOME IN THE MORNING
We will be heading home to New England in the morning. This has been a wonderful respite from winter, even though it was not too bad in the north until the snow at the end of February, first of March.
We expect that the return trip on Jet blue will be as easy as the trip down to Florida. The next posting of this BLOG offering will emanate from Danvers early next week.
North Shore Music Theatre
In the last couple of days, I received an e-mail that promoted the 2012 schedule at the Beverly location. The lineup looks most attractive and the theatre is a wonderful example of an organization that helps to promote culture in the region. The theatre has also been a great supporter of the work on North Shore Elder Services as they have agreed to host and take reservations for the major fundraising event of NSES as they help us present Loretta Laroche on May 6, 2012
SURE SIGNS THAT SPRING IS ON THE WAY
Now that we are on the way back to New England it is nice to see some signs that the winter “as it was” is almost over and hopefully in 2012 we might experience a spring season. We can only hope that the snow at the end of February has melted or will have disappeared by the time we arrive back in Danvers. I suppose that we could not expect to go the entire winter without some kind of winter.
Some hopeful examples of a soon to be experienced spring:
· The Boston Bike Sharing Program is about to open for the year and is planning an expansion into Cambridge and Somerville. I expect that the Salem Program is gearing up for a start as well.
· The Meadow Golf Course in Peabody had its earliest opening in its Eleven Year History, opening in March for golfers that are willing to brave the March winds.
· We remain hopeful that the winter rally in the stock market will continue into the spring and the escalating prices for gasoline can be controlled as the spring and summer tourist season is just around the corner. Lower prices are most important to the region’s tourist activity
SEE YOU ALL ON THE NORTH SHORE SOON, AND WE ARE HOPEFUL OF POSITIVE WEATHER IN OUR REGION CONTINUING AS WE BEGIN TO MOVE AROUND THE REGION AGAIN.
