Back at the American Dog Show at Bradford Common. Admiring the efforts of Melissa Cerasuolo, president of the Rotary Club who personally decorated the Rotary Club Dog. Could anything be more American? Loved it Melissa. And thanks to GHCC’s President Beverly Dunn Donovan for snapping the picture.
Getting the Scoop on the American Dog Show at Bradford Common while the twenty (20) 8’x10′ dog sculptures by Dale Rogers are set up. Exhibit runs Oct 20-22 10a-5p and supports Cogswell Art Center and Sweet Paws Rescue animal rescue. Thanks for the photo Stephen Arnold.
Invited back to guest on Valley Girls Radio last week with Lysa and Leslie and Lou. We were supposed to talk about all things happening in Haverhill, but instead got fixated on an article I wrote for the Oct issue of Haverhill Life Magazine about my ghost hunting adventures with Tom Spitalere and Hilldale Cemetery. http://haverhilllife.com/ This of course was after deep discussions on the word skivvies, the tv show Ozarks, and Lysa Pelletier-Gibbs‘ middle school diary post.
Felt like I got upgraded from the kids table at Thanksgiving, just not quite sure what I did to deserve the unexpected honor of being seated at the President’s Table at the Women’s City Club of Haverhill’s 100th Anniversary. It was also the “Guy’s table”, as it was the only table to have gentlemen. I was there representing Haverhill Life Magazine (I am a regular contract writer for the publication) and while many people came up to me to express how much they like the new publication, they also wanted to talk about my personal contribution to the City, The Heartbeat of Haverhill blog and Facebook page. What a wonderful fun loving warm group of women! And they all looked so elegant.
I love my new ‘brain’ (icon and logo) designed by Kim Hall Corton of Corton Design Group. Anyone willing to spend an hour with me trying to find the exact right tones of Crayola red/orange or is it orange/red and Koolaid purple because she wants to get it exactly as I’d envisioned is just a joy to work with. She pays attention to the smallest of details. Big love for Kim from both lobes of my cluttered brain.
Provided a marketing consultation to Elisabeth Brady of Modern Woodmen Fraternal Financial (Guess what it’s not about lumber jacks!) at Bradford Place Cafe.
Picking up my photography awards (2!) from Essex National Heritage Area. Personal goal to get Haverhill on the map for only the best reasons. Won the People’s Choice Award and best Urban photo. Check out Alison Colby-Campbell Photography to see more.
I was a guest on Valley Girls Radio show with Lysa Pelletier-Gibbs and Leslie Buresh. I actually returned another day as co-host when Leslie was unavailable. So much fun!
Speaking gig at Greater Haverhill Breakfast Exchange Club that supports seniors in need. Love this group. Spoke about making a difference and developing awareness.
With the lovely Dawn Richards, I helped her bring her book The Cancer Table to fruition from a variety of her written sources. She helped me learn about grace with strength and made from scratch Italian meatballs.
