Another Successful HopSwap

On Saturday May 5th, the HPTA hosted their 4th annual Hop Swap at the High School, which raises money for the schools by selling donated children's items such as clothing, toys, and books.

Hop Swap coordinator Michelle McGowan says that the hardest part of organizing the event is storing the items, since many of them are collected from community members several months in advance.

This was McGowan's second year coordinating the Hop Swap, and her last. She hopes that someone else in the community will step-up to continue the annual tradition.

Hello neighbors,

I'm Frank D'Urso and I'm running for School Committee.

I'm a Quality Assurance Engineer with 25+ years of high-tech experience. I have a Master of Management degree from Cambridge College, my undergraduate degree is from Northeastern University.

You might remember me from the effort to defeat the school district plan and the Fruit Street elementary school project. I was outspoken in opposition to those plans, and thankfully most of the town felt the same way and we prevailed, but not without a lot of hard work and many volunteers working together.
