Dara Gannon: Remember Sean by showing up for others

Today marks the first anniversary of the tragic loss of Yarmouth K9 Sergeant Sean Gannon who was shot and killed in the line of duty serving an arrest warrant in Marstons Mills. In a Cape Cod Times column, his wife Dara Gannon thanks the community for support over the past year.

               As the one-year anniversary of my husband’s death approaches, my thoughts turn to the days following April 12. The fog of grief clouded much of my memory during those early months. However, I clearly recall the sea of tear-stained faces lining the procession route. I witnessed love that day; it was a gift I will never forget.t.

               Thank you for your prayers and your meaningful letters. Thank you for the pictures drawn by your children, for the flowers, gifts, cards and the many homemade meals. Thank you for the stickers on your cars, and the blue lights and flags on your homes. For all of that, and for so much more, I am eternally grateful.l.l.

               Sean has been honored by the community in so many beautiful ways. Yet, he was a private person and did not like being the center of attention. He never sought recognition for himself. He acted on his principles and led by example. That’s how he lived his life, on and off the job. He inspires me every single day.

               If you want to remember Sean, find your own quiet way to show someone you care. That note or text you’ve been meaning to write but keep putting off — send it. Take time to ask a friend or a colleague how he or she is doing, and really listen. Own up to a mistake and make it right. Pick up the extra shift for someone who needs the time off. Buy a coffee or pay the toll for a stranger behind you. No gesture is too small. To that person, it could make all the difference that day. We each have a special gift. Please use yours for someone else. I feel that is Sean’s legacy.

               While my loss has been quite public, we usually can’t see the challenges facing others. But if we keep showing up for each other, we don’t have to carry the pain alone. Over the last year, I’ve watched as you wrapped your arms around other families in need. It makes me proud to call Cape Cod my home.

               This April 12 will be a private day for me and my family, but I will never forget the comfort and support that the community has given us and our family in blue. Thank you for holding Sean in your hearts. Let’s keep taking care of each other.

National Volunteer Week this year is recognized during April 7-13, 2019
This year’s theme is “Volunteers Making A Difference Every Moment”.  The Town of Barnstable benefits from the service of many volunteers every day.  THANK YOU to all of those volunteers who give countless hours to serve on our various boards, committees and commissions.   Where would we be without the dedicated volunteers who work with our Recreation Division’s Beach Sticker/Parking Permit program? Or our Senior Services volunteers who do everything from greeting visitors at the front desk to driving the Silver Express van and Toyota Camry to helping prepare taxes during this time of year? Or those volunteers who work assisting our staff with our Shellfish propagation program?  The Barnstable Police Department’s Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) is widely recognized as an outstanding volunteer program with volunteers serving at the front desk and as couriers and they are a vital part of the Hyannis Main Street and West Villages Police Substations.  Barnstable Public Schools have hundreds of volunteers on a daily basis.  We are truly grateful for all of you who give back to your community and we hope that you will continue to do so.  Thank you for your service!

Olde Barnstable Fairgrounds Sees Three (3) Hole-in-One Shots in One Week!

The unofficial start of the golfing season begins this weekend with “The Masters” tournament in Augusta, Georgia. The world’s best golfers vie for the coveted “Green Jacket” at arguably the most prestigious golf tournament of the year. Augusta National Golf Course is a spectacle to behold with the incredible floral display of thousands of ornamental trees and shrubs in full bloom coupled with an immaculately conditioned golf course that is a visual treat as well as a demanding test of golf for the PGA’s top touring Pros. Meanwhile, back on Cape Cod, diehard golfers have been out on the links for weeks taking advantage of bare ground conditions and typical “spring” weather to work on their games. The Golf gods were shining at Olde Barnstable Fairgrounds (OBF) Golf Course this past week, as three (3) lucky golfers scored holes in one during their rounds of golf! Congratulations go out to: Mia Hegarty, hole #4; Ellen Holmes, hole #15; and Jon Hirst, hole #2. Most golfers spend many years playing, hoping one day to score an “Ace,” knowing it probably will never happen. It is believed that this is the first time in the history of OBF (27 years) that three (3) people scored a hole-in-one in a one week span. An amazing feat!

Recycling Notice

The Solid Waste Division is continuing to adjust its recycling operations to be the most efficient and fiscally responsible for its sticker holders. On February 4, 2019, the Transfer Station & Recycling Center began accepting source separated NEWSPAPER in a designated container in the Recycle Area. Source separated newspaper currently holds a higher value in the recycling market when separated from Mixed Paper. By separating Newspaper, we intend to lower the cost of disposal for Mixed Paper while increasing the return of value for Newspaper.  Source Separated Recyclables will now be separated into six categories. These categories will be:

  • Corrugated Cardboard (corrugated cardboard similar to shipping and Amazon boxes. Some items not accepted are soiled boxes or greasy pizza boxes)
  • Plastics (clean plastic jars, tubs, jugs and bottles. Some items not included are 5-gallon buckets, large kids toys, Styrofoam, plastic bags)
  • Mixed paper (paperboard, mail, magazines, office paper)
  • Newspaper (clean newspaper only, free of excessive ink, non-paper material and other mixed paper, no inserts)
  • Metal cans (clean aluminum, tin and steel food and beverage cans)
  • Glass (clean clear and colored glass bottles and jars. Some items not included are Pyrex, window and automotive glass).

Sticker holders will be responsible for separating their recyclable items and disposing of them into the respective containers. The largest concern with recyclables is contamination. Please clean and/or rinse any residue from all recyclables.  We will be installing updated signs and personnel in the Recycle Center will help with any questions and concerns. Please visit MassDEP’s Recyclopedia at https://recyclesmartma.org/ for more information on what recyclable items are widely acceptable.  We appreciate everyone’s patience and assistance.
