After the Beach Video Club at Cape Pond Ice

On Tuesday July 19, The After the Beach Video Club took a visit to Gloucester’s Cape Pond Ice where they were able to take a tour of the factory and learn about the business of making ice here on Cape Ann. The tour was led by company president Scott Memhard. The kids got to see the inside of of the cooler and then go outside and learn how ice is used for the fishing fleet in Gloucester and other areas that makes ice so useful throughout the year.

We hope you enjoy this short clip and look for the upcoming episode of Productions Club, showing the full tour to air soon on Cape Ann Television.
