Center School Students Donate "Sweets for Soldiers"

Several boxes full of leftover Halloween candy line the Center School hallway. But these sweet treats are not for the students to eat. Instead, they will be shipped off to soldiers across the world as part first grade teacher Christine Allen's "Sweets for Soldiers" project. Allen first got the idea for the project after reading a magazine article on ways to use extra Halloween candy and decided it would be a great educational experience for her class.

Veterans Day in Hopkinton

Hopkinton honored its veterans as well as the sacrifices that all veterans have made during a Veterans' Day ceremony at Town Hall. The commemoration, which is always held on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, gave Hopkinton Town officials and residents of all ages an opportunity to personally thank and honor the veterans in attendance, as well as remember those who have passed away. Later that evening, the Veterans Celebration Committee hosted a dinner at the Rod and Gun Club. The annual event, which was started approximately 12 years ago, gives veterans and other community members a chance to connect and share stories with each other.

More photos from the Town Hall ceremony can be viewed on the HCAM photo website Scene in Hopkinton.
