A 12-month Cape Ann photo raffle calendar that will be sold through the Gloucester Rotary.  A raffle ticket will be attached to each calendar and a winning number will be chosen each week in 2023.  All profits from the calendar sales will go to the Gloucester Rotary’s efforts to raise money to support the many community and international activities in which the group is involved.

2023 Calendar Theme: Gloucester 400

In 2023, Gloucester is celebrating its 400th birthday, and the Gloucester Rotary wants to celebrate this with its calendar. Please, submit photos that reflect the best of Gloucester. Only photographs from Gloucester will be accepted.  A selection committee from the Rotary will make the choices.  (a photo release must be included for all individuals in image)
