I've started off enough months with pictures of Cumberland Farms and the gas price, so for something different, here's a view taken from the beach, looking toward Hopedale and Dutcher streets and the town park. In case you're interested, today's (October 1) gas price was $3.30. (Or $3.29 9/10 for those who like to be more precise.) Before the middle of the month it was below $3.00. By the 20th, $3.61

The Travis-Sawyer house on Hopedale Street, which was heavily damaged by fire last December, was razed on October 3. Click on the picture to see photos of the house during the Holiday House Tour last December.

   As part of their 50th reunion, the Hopedale High Class of 1958 visited the Little Red Shop on October 11. As you can see, it's still a long way from being ready for the grand opening, but nevertheless, they found much to look at and stayed quite a while. The bench on the left was a gift from the class to the Red Shop. It was constructed by class member Tony Iacovelli.

   After leaving the Red Shop, the Class of '58 visited the library, and the
Statue of Hope, which, as you can see, was running that day.

   The back of the apartment house on Dutcher Street. It used to be
a boarding house.
