Letter From the Director
I write this newsletter on Tuesday after Marathon Day and my original thoughts for this piece just doesn’t seem to make any sense right now … what happened at the Boston Marathon just makes me sad. Why would anyone think that killing innocent bystanders is okay? I realize this happens all over the world however, it never makes any sense to me, no matter where it happens.
But we will prevail … because as a nation we are strong, we are caring, we are kind and because we simply have no other choice. I wanted to stay home and just garden today (or maybe stay under the covers in my bedroom?) … but it is important that we move forward … and forward is where we will go.
As we move forward, we hope that you will join us. We have so many interesting regular programs and so many great special programs this May and June, so please plan on joining us.
First, on May 13th at 1pm, stop by as Officer Stone introduces everyone to our new police dog and enjoy a K9 demonstration. Or sign up for a Healthy Eating/Healthy Brain demonstration by Compass of Hopkinton on Tuesday May 21st.
If you have volunteered at the Center for more than 10 hours, please join us on May 16th for our Annual Thank You Luncheon. It is our simple way to say thanks for helping us make the Center a warm and inviting place.
On Monday, May 20, we are pleased to invite you to our 4th Annual High School/Senior Center Dinner Dance at the HHS. This is a fun night hosted by the students and always memorable.
And on Wednesday June 5th, the Adams Middle School will once again be hosting their 5th Annual Community Service Day. Seniors are invited to a cookout at lunchtime.
Once again, Donna and her friends invite you to their Annual Tea Party on, Tuesday June 18th which is always highly attended ... just don’t forget your hat!
And mark your calendar as the Lions Club invite you to their Annual Cookout on Sunday June 23 at the Center, rain or shine. Finally, the Center will be hosting its own Summer Sizzler on Wednesday June 26th.
We are so blessed here at the Center to have so many committed volunteers/staff as well as community support that even though my heart is heavy this morning, I look out at the sunshine and know that together, we do make this world, that at times can be very distressing, a better place.
Be well, stay well, stay safe and keep moving forward.
