Parks and Recreation Halloween Party a Success

Elmwood School's gym was transformed into a Halloween party on October 28th. The party, which the Parks and Recreation Department has sponsored for the past 14 years, gave Hopkinton's youngsters a chance to dress up in character and have some fun. From Dalmatians, to pumpkins, to bumblebees and owls, the kids got really into the spirit of the holiday. At the party, there were many games setup for the kids to play such as ball toss and bean bag toss. And the prize for winning?...candy. And the biggest highlight of the night?... donut eating.

November 1, 2011—a nice chilly fall morning…a perfect day for a special event at the Hopkinton Senior Center! Besides it being my birthday, it was the official Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the new parking lot. This parking lot was a long time in the making, something very much needed at the center. Since the center opened, there have been many, many parties and special events where there just wasn’t enough parking for everyone who attended. Some people would actually arrive an hour or so early just to get a parking spot.
