April 11th, 2015|

For those who missed our Good News Breakfast Salute on Friday, April 10 at Amesbury Flatbread Company, the Daily News of Newburyport nicely recapped the morning’s events and remarks, including this tribute to our fine City from Amesbury Chevrolet’s Brian Fecteau:

“You go to other towns or cities and there is a problem or a roadblock,” Fecteau said. “Every time we went here to the mayor’s office, or to the building inspector, it was always, ‘How can we figure this out?’ It is a team effort.”
