Hoover's Hometown Days
August 6th and 7th will find the West Branch streets packed with excited kids and interested adults! Due to the past 16 months of pandemic, our annual Hymn Sing and Pie and Ice Cream social had to be canceled in 2020.
But a little bit of good news for 2021...the singing will have to be postponed once again, but:
THE PIE AND ICE CREAM WILL BE BACK!
Gather with friends and neighbors in the front lawn of the meeting house (on Downey St.) and enjoy your choice of delicious pie - with or without ice cream. Serving begins on Saturday, the 7th, at 6:30 P.M.
Please be considerate of those who need to be protected from the virus and wear masks (except when eating,) and maintain social distance.

Humans for Racial Justice Booth
This group of community folks has been meeting biweekly to discuss ways to understand inequality and injustices, and will be having a booth during Hometown Days to highlight some of their activities. They will be passing out a brochure explaining their work and including resources, there will be free cotton candy, cookies from foreign countries, coins from other countries, and many other fun, interactive displays.
Come and check out the group and put a pin on the map showing where you are from!
