As we enter the Holiday Season, we want to share with the community about some special Holiday events!
Saturday December 3rd
The Vineyard Church of Hopkinton is putting on a morning movie called “Why Do We Call It Christmas?” from 10am-12pm in our movie room downstairs. Kids and families from the community are welcome! Snacks and popcorn will be included and you can also bring snacks of your own. If you are registered for our after school program, you may attend alone. However, if younger siblings are joining you, you must have a parent/guardian attend as well.
The Milford Jr. Women’s Club is hosting the “Gala of Trees” event upstairs in the homework room/arts and crafts room! The event is a fundraiser to support their “guardian Angel Fund” which is set up to assist those in need who may have suffered events which have left them in situations of hardship. Organizations will have trees and wreaths decorated to be raffled off. This event is open to the public Saturday from 12pm-5pm & Sunday 3-5 pm so stop by upstairs to bid on these beautiful decorations! Winners will be picked Sunday afternoon so trees can be picked up by Sunday evening.
