St. Valentine's Day at the Senior Center

After filling the dining room for a lunch of ham with all the trimmings--and cake for dessert-- more than fifty guests at the Senior Center seated themselves right next door for the festivities of St Valentine’s Day. Seniors offered each other greetings and best wishes for the day. The meeting room was decked out for the holiday with table decorations and a selection of sweets for everyone’s delight, all provided by the Friends of the Hopkinton Senior Center.

On hand was Hopkinton resident John Guido who provided the music, specially selected for the seniors.

Seniors enjoyed dancing and exchanging greetings on the dance floor and the first couple to step onto the dance floor were Ruth LeBlanc and John Birri who especially love to dance.

A highlight of the event was the naming of the King and Queen of Hearts. Cindy Chesmore, director of the Senior Center, was named the Queen and Pat Baratta was named the King of Hearts. Gift baskets provided by Project Just Because were awarded as prizes for the Royal Pair.

Baratta also planned to celebrate Valentine’s Day with his wife, saying they planned to go out to dinner. Valentine cards were also a subject of interest and were provided the Hopkinton's Girl Scouts.

Watch the HCAM video for highlights of the festivities!

"Take Your Child to the Library Day" A Success

On Saturday, February 2, the Hopkinton Public Library held its first "Take Your Child to the Library Day". The theme for the day was Groundhog Day and included several groundhog day stories from Mrs. K, a chance for the children to make their own groundhog craft and music with Mrs. Grady.

Denise Kofran, the Children's Librarian, was the one who planned the event after having heard about the grassroots initiative started by librarians in Connecticut.. Nadine Lipman, a children's librarian in Waterford, Connecticut, came up with the idea for "Take Your Child to the Library Day"and selected the first Saturday in February as the annual day of celebration.

In Hopkinton, due to the time of year, Kofron tied the day to a groundhog theme, reading several stories related to groundhogs. Once the stories were complete, it was time for a groundhog craft. Tables with supplies were set up in the library and with the help of Girl Scouts from Troop 72948, children were able to make their own groundhogs which were then used when it was time for music with Mrs. Grady the Music Lady.

The event was the first time that the library held a weekend children's story time and both Denise Kofron and Susan Marshall were pleased with the turnout saying the weekend gave parents who work during the week a chance to participate in what is usually a week day event. For Adult Services Librarian Susan Marshall, it was a chance to bring her grandchildren to work without having to man the front desk.

While the official "Take Your Child to the Library Day" is over, it's possible that future weekend events at the library are not. In the meantime, there are still plenty of events planned. Mrs. Grady the Music Lady will be back in March, April and May, so be sure to visit the library website for more details.
