A Retirement Breakast for Senior Outreach Supervisor Mary McLeod

After 20 years of service to the community, Senior Center Outreach Supervisor Mary McLeod is retiring. To celebrate her years of dedication and hard work, McLeod was recognized at a breakfast at the Senior Center on October 8th. Those who came to thank McLeod and wish her well on her new endeavors included Senior Center employees and volunteers, Senior Center patrons, and town officials.

Those who have worked with and have gotten to know McLeod over the years say that they have been touched by her warmth, personableness, and devotion to the community.

McLeod says that she is thankful for having worked in such a welcoming environment and that everyone she has met there has made a lasting impact on both her as well as the Senior Center itself.

A self described "people person", McLeod says that besides taking some time for herself by exercising and painting, she will still continue to produce and host Senior View, a monthly talk show on HCAM that focuses on senior related topics. And to the delight of those at the Senior Center, McLeod will still be there a few times a week as a volunteer.

HCAM News Visits the Fire Station Open House

A little rain didn't dampen the spirit of those eager to learn about fire safety during the Hopkinton Fire Department's Open House on October 6th. The goal of the event, which takes place annually during National Fire Prevention Week, is to give community members of all ages a chance to meet the firefighters, interact with the fire safety equipment, and to ask questions.

This year's National Fire Prevention Week theme focused on how to avoid kitchen fires, the most common place for a house fire to start. To educate those about this topic, the department set up a demonstration about potential kitchen hazards and how they can be fixed.

Other demonstrations and activities included an appearance by Sparky the Fire Dog, fire truck rides, getting to play inside a fire truck, setting a fire to show how fast it can spread, taking a ride on a stretcher, and using a fire extinguisher to put out a house fire.
