Letters: A Thank You; Remarks on Freedom Pier



  Nancy Andrews from the DogHouse Sports Pub and Clifford Barnes from the “Junk Yard Dogs” would like to thank the DogHouse for hosting our annual breast cancer benefit on September 10.


  We would also like to thank the Camden County Freeholders for donating the Camden County Stage, all business’ for donating a Chinese auction gift, and all family and friends for donating the food and their time.
  Also, the Gloucester City Fire Department for all their help, and, most of all, the various bands who donated their time. It was a great success and every year it seems to get bigger and better. We are looking forward to doing it again next year.

Nancy Andrews, Gloucester City 


Reader Enjoys Pier Article

   I really enjoyed reading the recent article about the dedication of  Gloucester's Freedom Pier in the Gloucester City News, and look forward to all the great additions that will be happening on our waterfront.

  All the people who gave so much of themselves to bring this into reality deserved every word of recognition they received, and Gloucester is lucky to have them.

  While reading the article, it also brought back a long-ago fun memory of being at the U.S. Coast Guard Station.

  It happened when I was between 8 and 10 years old back in the 1940's, and although I cannot recall how I came to know her, there was a young girl who lived there (her father was an officer but can't recall at what level), and we decided to play hide and seek on the grounds.

  I decided to run to the back, closest to the river, and I hid in one of the buoys!

  I was in there a very long time because she couldn't find me and eventually she, along with a grownup, were calling my name to come out (needless to say, I'd won that game)!
