Marblehead Lighthouse Festival

The Marblehead Peninsula Chamber of Commerce could not have had a more glorious day for the 19th annual Marblehead Lighthouse Festival. The day brought sunshine, a chill in the air and the smell of great food through Lakeside. The Chamber of Commerce extends a deep sense of gratitude to Lakeside for allowing the use of the beautiful grounds and facilities.

110 vendors set up and WPCR Radio was on hand for a live video broadcast interviewing organizers, vendors and festival goers.

A festival of this magnitude could never happen without the dedication of many. The Chamber would like to thank all who dedicated their time to the success of the festival. Work began Tuesday evening when directors arrived to assist Gary Balsom, Pete Schwager, Mark Rowland and Dave Hirsch in taping off the booth spaces.


Thompson Lourdes University Presidential Scholarship recipient

Lourdes University would like to recognize Caitlynn Thompson from Marblehead, as a recipient of the Lourdes University Presidential Scholarship this 2014 fall semester. In order to be eligible for the benefits that this competitive, merit-based scholarship offers, a minimal 3.5 cumulative GPA is required, and students must have intentions to pursue a bachelor degree as a full-time student at the Sylvania campus.

The Presidential Scholarship reaps instantaneous rewards for the student, offering up to $8,000 in tuition assistance per academic year. Immediacy doesn't necessarily mean that the rewards are short-lived, as this scholarship is also renewable. Recipients who maintain a 3.0 GPA while enrolled at Lourdes, as well as remain committed to a full-time course load, will be eligible to renew the scholarship over a maximum of four years, earning up to $32,000 in tuition assistance.


Village Square: October 2014

By John Starcher, President Pro Tem, Marblehead Council

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by! It seems like it was January just a month ago! As I look back over the past ten months, the thing that stands out in my memory the most is how we all enjoyed the remarkable ice piles by the Marblehead Lighthouse back in March. I’m sure you saw the pictures, as they were all over social media and the internet in general. The pictures, though, were absolutely nothing compared to seeing it first hand up close and personal. I’ll never forget the feeling of standing on the ice, more than one hundred or so feet from shore, and just reveling in the spectacular view.  It made me feel grateful for having the opportunity to live and work in such a beautiful and wonderful village.
