I just stopped by City Hall and picked up my nomination papers to be Amesbury’s next Mayor. I can’t wait to get started in this exciting new role!

I will be out collecting signatures starting today to get on the November 2, 2021 ballot. One thing is for sure - I am going to give this new job 110% of my energy and effort every day just as we have as your State Representative for the last 6 1/2 years.

Thank you for the honor and privilege of serving you 😊

We are thrilled to announce that Amesbury will have fireworks this year! 🎉 In partnership with Amesbury Days and through the generosity of private donors, we will be able to hold fireworks on July 4th for our community. Fireworks are at 9:30PM, with the traditional food vendors and live music starting around 6PM.

When the Governor removed limits on gatherings recently, Amesbury Mayor Kassandra Gove was able to get our fireworks vendor on board quickly and received support from a few residents to make this happen. Huge thank you to School Committee member Mel Webster and his wife Kathleen Sullivan, and D4 City Councilor Nick Wheeler and his wife Denise for stepping up to make donations to Amesbury Days for fireworks.

Amesbury Police Department (OFFICIAL) will put out traffic and parking regulations as we get closer to July 4th. Let’s all have a fun and safe Independence Day holiday! 🇺🇸

Today’s Senior Walk was so special. We visited Barnard School, Amesbury Elementary, Cashman Elementary, and @amesburymiddleschool

At each stop, students and staff were lined outside to meet our seniors. This was cool for the younger students who got a glimpse into their future (and the “funny hats” they’ll get to wear someday), and for the teachers who got to see their former students (just a little taller!).

Thanks to each school that helped to pull of this event and to the Institution for Savings who funded the buses to get us around town!

Happy 353 years Amesbury!

Throwback Thursday!! This photo was taken sometime in the mid-1970s. The location is behind fire headquarters and the building you are looking at is the side of the old annex building that has since been torn down. On the far left is the 1965b model Mack, in the center, the Dodge power wagon forestry 1950-60’s and on the far right is the 1974 Cadillac ambulance.

Instagram happy today I guess. I’ve always loved the way the shop looks as I turn out the lights at the end of the day... half lit, half in the shadows. It’s a pleasing sight to see it so full of boats... a little over ten years ago this place nearly got turned into condos if it weren’t for the money and effort of a handful of people who had a vision and couldn’t let that happen... you know who you are

Due to an unforeseen change, G. Mello will no longer be able to collect Christmas trees during the regular trash pickup in January. Instead, there will be two Saturday collections for Christmas trees only - January 9th and January 16th.

Please place the bare tree (free of ornaments, lights, bulbs and sharp objects) outside by 6:30AM and it will be collected. Please cut trees over 6 feet tall in half. Trees covered by snow cannot be collected.

Please help spread the word!

Tis the season!

Would anyone happen to know the history of the little red house on 19 Chase Street in Amesbury? Or where, or who might know? It appears occupied, but out of respect to whom lived there I refrained from knocking on their. Any knowledge or advice on where to ask, I would be grateful for.
Q: Redford’s History of Amesbury mentions the relocation in 1761 of a church from near Martin Road to “the small triangular spot now known as Huntington Park on Haverhill Road opposite the northwestern end of Union Cemetery.” (Pg 27) Is this what is currently signed as “Memorial Park” at the intersection of Highland and Rt. 110/Haverhill Road? Any help appreciated, thanks.
Amesbury lost one of its finest former teachers on Thanksgiving. If you were students at AHS in the 1950s-60, you might have had classes with Bert Fecteau - or you were coached by him in track and field sports. He was one of my favorite teachers - made mathematics come alive.

I worked at Henschel Corporation and when the Merrimac Hat was auctioned off, I bought all copies of the Merrimac Hat Quarterly from 1939 to 1948. Here is a picture of the plant. 😄 I have the full set ending in January 1949. Many photos of Amesbury men and women serving during WW2 and hundreds of other photos.
Hi folks, I wanted to ask a favor. My Dad (David Shaw) and my Mom (Ruth Shaw) were both long time educators in the Amesbury school system (70s-early 90s). Dad taught at the Middle School first, eventually became principal at the Elementary School and Horace Mann. Mom taught at the Middle School as an almost daily substitute. They are in their 80s now. I was wondering if any of you who are former students of theirs might share some stories about them. I'd like to copy and print the posts to give them as interesting reading material. As an educator myself, I've learned that we don't always know whether or how we've impacted students until much later. Thank you.
Haverhill Gazette 1939 This was the back of an old article from my Grandmothers high school graduation, interesting! Maybe someone will recognize some names!
Here is a photo someone on ancestry.com shared with me today. Many of their descendants still live in Amesbury, Mass. The oldest lady is my great-grandmother Emilia (Guimond) Jacques (1872-1919). She was born in Quebec province. She married Henry Jacques in Newburyport, Mass., in 1894. She later ran a boarding house on Water Street in Amesbury. My grandmother was Mary Jane (Jacques) Grinnell, who married Edward Joseph Grinnell in the 1910's. First row Elz/Blanche/Rose. Second row Mary Jane/Laura/ Mrs. Amelia (Guimond) Jacques.
