Balloon Evening

Graduation 2010

A hearty congratulations to the Hopkins Academy students who graduated yesterday.  Read the short article about the graduation from MassLive here.  Valedictorian Marisa Babb and Principal Diana Bonneville are featured.  The article mentions that all graduating students are headed off to 2-4 years of college or the military.

Memorial Day Parade, 2010

Sunday was the Hadley Memorial Day Parade, and I thought, what better way to introduce this brand new blog to the world than to share pictures from the parade? I took pictures of just about everything, but have selected only about half of them to share here.
The parade took place on Rt 9 and began at 2pm; we had prime seats at the corner of Rts 9 & 47, just across from Town Hall.
