If you have old or torn flags that need to be destroyed, you can bring them to the Community House.

Looking for suggestions of types of activities and days/time to hold them.  If we get enough of a response we will try and add your suggested activities.

The Hopedale Community House will follow the Hopedale Public Schools closing and delays schedule for inclement weather.  We will notify the instructors if a class is cancelled and if time permits, we will send out an email to all participants. Please make sure we have an accurate email address for you.

We will be offering a 10-week session on Wednesdays September 13 – November 15 from 6:00pm – 8:00pm taught by Rachel Largey.  At the end of the 10 weeks students can expect to learn how to finger-spell, count, and simply communicate using ASL.   You will receive a certificate stating you have successfully completed the first Sign Language course.

Rachel Largey is an ASL (American Sign Language) interpreter. Growing up a CODA (Child of Deaf Adult) with both of her parents being deaf ASL was Rachel’s first language. In 1977 Rachel began her formal training to become a certified ASL interpreter. Graduating in 1978 from National Technology institute for the Deaf in Rochester New York, Rachel has been interpreting and advocating for the deaf community ever since. As a part of that she has worked for years to not only teach the next generation of interpreters but also to give a voice back to members of her community who didn’t have one.

Fee would be $200.00 for the session that is $10.00/class.

Class size will be limited so don’t miss out.  Registration will begin August 21. Please email to sign up.
