Viken Dumeciyan The Region's Largest Weekly Distribution Happy Easter from... The Town Common REGIONAL -- On the night of March 2, the first nor’easter that plowed up the Atlantic coast brought hurricane-force winds and more than 4 inches of rain to the North Shore. That night, 20 professionals, including firefighters, police officers, emergency medical personal and National Guardsmen, worked from the Ipswich fire station, “We were extremely busy going from one emergency to the next,” Lt. James Edwards wrote recently. Everyone was “working to keep the town’s people safe.” Rescuing people in distress and keeping others safe is hard work. And hard work makes rescuers hungry. As they picked up the phone to place a food order, the power to the entire town, including the fire station, was knocked out. The hungry firefighters, police officers, EMS technicians and the guardsmen called more than a dozen restaurants in towns and cities in and around Ipswich, including Danvers and Beverly. They found what many North Shore residents discovered that night: most restaurants had no power. And the few that did wouldn’t deliver as far as Ipswich. At 9:30 p.m. when the troops were getting really hungry, the Domino’s Pizza in Newburyport answered the phone. In a thank you letter to the manager of the Domino’s franchise, Edwards wrote, “Although we here in Ipswich are way out of your delivery range, you guys made an exception for us given the situation.” Domino’s took the order for 20 pizzas and the owner asked her PRST STD.

By fall, expect to hear music, the clinking of champagne glasses and spoken vows where now you hear chickens, ducks and sheep. After a year of waiting, the Town of Rowley approved the occupancy permit for the barn last week. Sabatini picked up the permit from Building Inspector Ken Ward on Thursday. “We are very happy today,” Faulkner said. In addition to being the nation’s second oldest farm, Bradstreet Farm’s latest claim to fame is that it hosted actress Amy Shumer and her production crew for several nights while they filmed her new movie, I Feel Pretty. And next weekend, dozens of children and their families will gather at the farm at 239 Main Street for the First Annual Rowley Easter Egg Hunt.

He converted the newer section of the barn, about 2,000 square feet, built in the early 1900s, from a cow barn to a party room. Outside where the cows once entered the barn, there is now a patio and pergola for weddings and other farm-totable events.

When he approached the town to inquire what permits the farm would need, Sabatini ran into a stone wall. The town initially claimed that the farm, which was deeded in 1635 by King Charles I of England, was not a farm and the land was not zoned to hold events. Continued on page 3 Continued on page 3
