Welcome Schooners!

Brett Nick Max Ramsey Gloucester Schooner Fest welcome 2016 copyright Kim SmithWhat a treat to tag along with Gloucester’s own Schooner Festival welcoming committee Brett Ramsey and his sons Max and Nick. Each year Brett purchases and assembles baskets of fresh fruit. Along with loaves of yummy bread still warm from Virgilio’s ovens (donated by Joe Virgilio), Brett and his family welcome each and every participating schooner. You could tell that the recipients were really grateful and thrilled by the gesture.

Special shout out to Schooner Green Dragon’s Captain Al Bezanson. I was out filming early this morning and stopped by Rocky Neck Accommodations to say hello to Al and his wife Phyllis. This was Al’s idea to cover the Schooner Fest welcome, so thank you Al Bezanson!!
