Kiwanis hears from K-9 expert
Marie Finnegan of Thomaston was the featured guest speaker at the Kiwanis meeting on October 21. She owns K-9 Solutions Dog Training in Thomaston.
As the coordinator of the K-9 Corrections program at Maine State Prison, Finnegan gave an overview of the program’s genesis and purpose.
K-9 Corrections is a non-profit organization that pairs at-risk dogs with inmate handlers teaching, positive life skills to both. Once the dogs have completed the training, they become available for adoption through Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County.

The Kiwanis Club of Rockland meets weekly and offers members the opportunity to provide support to those in need through hands-on service projects and fundraising activities. The 60 men and women who comprise the membership reside in towns throughout Knox and Lincoln counties.
