Celebrated Leadership

By Peter A. Todd 01/01/2012


Build not for today alone, but tomorrow as well


On this first day of our new year

We celebrate with those we have chosen to lead

Our city built from all yesterday’s combined

With all it happiness and tears

We celebrate the challenges giving thanks to our past

In reflection of our brave Fishermen

Of which our cities destiny was cast

We now gather in our circle of Faith renewed

That those we chose will help our city grow

Combined with their dedication Gloucester’s goals will come true

From the teachers in our schools

To the very heritage in which Gloucester is sowed

Moving forward by not looking back

We will meet the challenges of tomorrow and today

By trusting those we have elected to serve

In each of their wisdom to lead the way
