Now is the time to recall the meaning of Patriots Day. We can do it at the Senior Center Mess Hall with its chipped beef specialty and other great chow on Friday, 4 April 2014, at or about 0900 hours. Many regulars are there before 0900 for coffee and muffins, so don't be late. Best of all there will be an environment of good friends and camaraderie. Please invite your friends who don't receive this message. If there are transportation difficulties, call Amy Beck by 2 April 2014, 508 497-9730.

Tuesday, 1 April, was the anniversary of the start of The Battle of Okinawa. Many who lived in Hopkinton took part in the largest battle in the Pacific, and the last battle of World War II. Review the dramatic history: http://hpkmam.wix.com/hopvetsonokinawa .
