    The remnants of the greatest day ever remain in the streets of Philadelphia, or, if you were there, in your clothes, up your nostrils, under your fingernails, like grains of sand after a day at the beach. They will never go away. And who would want them to, anyway? The Eagles’ Parade Of Champions from Thursday resonates like no day in the history of the City of Philadelphia ...(photo credit) Amanda Stevenson Lupke http://www.gloucestercitynews.net/clearysnotebook/2018/02/a-parade-to-remember-forever-.html

Phanatic Visits Brooklawn School District

  • Screen Shot 2017-05-24 at 19.42.00
    by CNBNews Staff BROOKLAWN, NJ (CNBNewsnet)—The Alice Costello Elementary School (ACES) was one of this year’s winners of the Philadelphia Phillies Phanatic About Reading program. The Phillie Phanatic is the star of children's books and as a result has turned his love of reading into the exciting Phanatic About Reading program presented by Comcast. Studies have shown that children who are encouraged to read items of their own choosing tend to spend more time reading independently, and as a result, their literacy scores improve. Founded in 2004, the program encourages students to read for a minimum of 15 minutes a day to improve their literacy skills. Each year teachers in the South Jersey and Philadelphia area are encouraged to enroll their classrooms and join the nearly 40,000 students already reading with the Phanatic!

Breakfast Club Dec. 2007

  • Breakfast_club_december_07_050
    By Lois Lane, gossip columnist for ClearysNoteBook The Gloucester City Breakfast Club had a huge turnout for their December 29 meeting held at the Dining Car Depot, Monmouth Street at the Railroad. Some thirty-nine men were in attendance. Hank Miller won the prize for coming the longest distance.Breakfast_club_december_07_003 The former Gloucester resident, who writes the column When East Meets West for ClearysNoteBook, flew in from his home in Kitakyushu City, Japan just for the breakfast. Winning second place was former Gloucesterite Jack Bowe, who traveled from St. Louis Missouri to see his friends. Third was Bill Wibby Yeager who drove from Dover, Delaware. Fourth and Fifth Place goes to Butch Shaffer (Cape May) and Ron Raube (Mays Landing). The winners each received a second cup of coffee at no charge plus all the water they could drink. El Presidente Chas Pitzo announced that Bill Cleary has resigned as treasurer and Jack Heiser volunteered to take his place. Pitzo gave a treasury report stating there was $400 in the account. Speaking of Cleary he was the winner of the 50-50 this month. Since he was chosen to pick the stub out of the bucket some members thought he shouldn't be eligible to Breakfast_club_december_07_006 win. The executive board held an emergency meeting and ruled he could keep the prize ($19.02) as long as he picked up the tab for everyone's breakfast. Needless to say when it came time to pay the check Cleary was no where to be found. Besides those already mentioned others in attendance included: Sam Chew, Frank Grandizio, Tom and Bud Wrigley, John Lang, Joe Boulden, Bob Bevan, Frank Cipolone, Bob Sliwa, Jack Persichetti, Ron Middleton, Joe DiGiacomo, Earl Kaighn, Walt Hall, Stu Rechard, Tom Moody. Also, Gary Marcucci, John Hindsley, Joe Raube, Rick Gonzales, Jim and Harry Blymer, Mike Bowe, Joe Miller, Chalie Tourtual, Harry Walker, Tom ChooChoo Murphy, and Bob Bevan. The next meeting, Saturday, January 26 at 9 AM. To become a member you must be a male, be able to eat breakfast and enjoy laughing. Also you need to know the answer to this question……where was the Charles Street Stadium located? Just in case you need a hint it was somewhere in Gloucester City.
