Tino’s Corner

Mary Lou Marganis, founder of the Gloucester Dog Park shares the Tino’s Corner plaque with us. The plaque illuminates one of the founding principles of the dog park. Tino’s Corner is a special area of the dog park for dogs not ready for the park, dogs that need special training, or dogs that need time to adjust.

Tino's Corner

And Tino’s Corner exemplifies injustices to both animals and humans.

Mary Lou writes, “Tino was needlessly killed by the very shelter that was supposed to be there to protect and care for him. Many of us fought the injustice but it fell on deaf ears. However, the movement in rescue has been reform from ignorant, antiquated thinking. There is a New Age of Sheltering whereby killing is no longer accepted as the first option. And finally, and long overdue,  there seems to be a New Age of transformation for humans as well.”

The message on the plaque is a quote from Martin Luther King, Jr., and rings very true today,

“Never, never be afraid to do what is right, especially if the well being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.”

As an animal lover, a rescue dog owner, this rings true for me and I aim to live my life this way.

Cape Ann Community

The Sawyer Free Library (SFL) is excited to kick off its 2020 Summer Reading Program. This year’s theme is Imagine Your Story,” and while it may feel slightly different from previous years due to COVID-19, the library is planning to make this year’s Summer Reading one to remember with an emphasis on fantasy, fairy tales, and folk tales.

This annual program aims to combat summer learning loss in children by encouraging patrons of all ages to read during the summer months and participate in library activities.
