Letter: Once in a Blue Moon opportunity
Friday, July 2, 2004

To the Editor:

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 2004.

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" anew.

Events are free. Please refer to the and Web sites for further detail. Learn more about Dexter and his role as the Waterside movement's exponent at And join in the conversation with Lord Tim and the Knowing Ones at the newly established Virtual Wolfe Tavern at
