Letter: Lighting Main Street with generosity
The Garden Club of Gloucester and the Walter Reed Garden Clubs would like to thank all of the donors that made it possible to light Gloucester Main Street for Christmas. This is our second year to light the lamp posts and we were able to do 62 posts this year. Last year we did 42 posts.
