“You’ve Got A Friend,” was once again the theme of last Friday’s annual “Bring a Friend Day” at the Hopkinton Senior Center—their fifth year! Since the first four years of this event were such a huge success, the seniors were once again invited to bring their “little friends” to the center for another fun afternoon. The friends could be grandchildren, nieces, nephews, neighbors, etc. It was cute watching everyone give their grandchildren tours of the place; they all got to see where Grandma and Grandpa come for their own fun time!
