Things To Do – Underwater Photographer Andrew Martinez Presentation Nov 15th

Olivia Rugo Writes-

Hi Joey,
I work for NOAA Fisheries Service and am starting up a free evening lecture series for the general public. Our first lecture is coming up and is local underwater photographer Andrew Martinez. Andy is from Wenham and has been diving in New England waters for more than 40 years. He has compiled one of the most extensive collections of high quality images of marine life behavior from New England to Eastern Canada. His book, Marine Life of the North Atlantic, is considered the best guide to this region and is now in its 4th edition with more than 200 new photographs. The presentation will be held Monday, November 15, 7-8:30 pm at NOAA Fisheries Service’s Northeast Regional Office at 55 Great Republic Drive, Gloucester.

Dory Rowing Is A 12 Month Activity


The International Dory Race Committee would like everyone to know that there are still two freshly painted practice dories in the water and available for use all through the winter.

For more information and to sign up or sign up a friend or loved one as a holiday gift you can check out the International Dory Website here (a full year membership is only $60)

Membership is $60 for 1 year, and runs January to January. Membership includes use of committee dories, loaner equipment, and race and committee event invitations. To become a member, download the membership form here.

Erik Dombrowski writes-

Many thanks to the people who volunteered some time to haul the race dories last weekend.  An excellent turn-out by our members allowed us to finish by 9 AM and make light work of putting the dories to rest for the winter.

Please keep in mind, though that we currently have 2 practice boats with freshly painted bottoms that will be in the water to be rowed all winter.  We don’t want to discourage winter rowing by true iron men & women like Damon & Hilary!!!

See you all soon.


YOKO – Good Morning Gloucester Pet of the Week

YOKO – Good Morning Gloucester Pet of the Week
My name is Yoko and my brother and I are here at the Cape Ann Animal Aid (CAAA) in Gloucester.
We are three-month-old pups who are outgoing and happy.  Like most pups, we love to play
and play and then sleep and sleep.  We only have one fault, our tails never stop wagging.
We are sweet and gentle.  I think we are part Beagle.  We weight about 11 pounds now and
will be medium when fully grown.  Why don’t you stop down to the shelter located at
260 Main Street in Gloucester.  The CAAA is a non-profit animal shelter dedicated to caring for
homeless cats and dogs.  I am pretty certain if you come to visit me, you will want to adopt me.
I look a little too serious in this photo, but I promise to smile next time!
