On October 23 Patricia Hatch, shown above, delivered the annual Friends of Adin
Ballou address at the Unitarian Church. It was titled, "Women in the Early Hopedale
Community." A great deal of Hopedale's early years were covered as she talked
about the life and times of nineteen Community women. In her research for the
speech, she discovered pictures of three members of the Hopedale Community;
Abby Ballou Heywood, daughter of Adin Ballou, Abby's husband, Rev. William
Heywood, and prominent Community member, Abbie Hills Price. This was quite a
find, as no one at the talk had previously seen pictures of any of them.

We had a little snow on the night of October 27 - 28.

We had a little snow during the night of October 29-30. It was only
about four inches and most of it melted quickly, as the temperature
got into the mid-40s. Lots of other places weren't as lucky. Click on
