Once in a Blue Moon opportunity
Friday, July 2, 2004
All generations are welcome to a community "gam" (a gathering
for conversation) at the Firehouse Center on Saturday, July 3, from
10 a.m. until Noontide. Come meet and greet Lord Timothy Dexter, Newburyport's
eccentric 18th century merchant adventurer. A believer in reincarnation,
Dexter had predicted that from time to time he "may come back toue
see houe you all goue on." Fulfilling his prophesy in the form
of Paul Jancewicz ("boddey & sole"), Lord Tim shall play
a key role in a "Motion of Comity" with Yankee Homecoming
The July 3 gam anticipates a Once in a Blue Moon opportunity to remark
this milestone year on Saturday, July 31. Held at the Waterfront's Market
Landing Park after Yankee Homecoming's opening ceremonies at noon, the
community gathering will gather momentum for moons to come. The July
31 Afternoon of the Blue Moon event will precede the sweet sounds of
music (7:30-9:30 p.m.) and the First Annual Yankee Homecoming Lighted
Boat Parade which will commence at 8:30 p.m., just as the Blue Moon
rises over the Merrimack River.
So mark your calendars and check your compass. Share in the enlightening
and entertaining exchange with Lord Tim about local, regional and global
history - past, present and future. Come help build a foundation of
knowledge about where we have been, where we are and where we are going,
and contribute a stone to the cairn to mark that we have come this far.
And help chart the next leg of the journey and launch "the Ship"
Events are free. Please refer to the YankeeHomecoming.com and Comity.org
