Events and Postings

Memorial Day Observance

The public is encouraged to attend the 2019 Memorial Day observance on Monday, May 27 in Huntington. The parade assembles at Pettis Field at 8:00 a.m. and marches to the gazebo on the Town green for the ceremony. All veterans and other groups are invited to participate. Any veteran needing a ride should call Committee Chairman Lori Belhumeur at 413-667-3169 in advance.

In case of heavy rain, the program will be held in Stanton Hall. Following the program, refreshments will be served in Stanton Hall along with the video "Hallowed Grounds." This shows 22 overseas American military cemeteries (including Flanders Fields) where more than 125,000 servicemen and women from World Wars I and II have their final resting place.

Parade observers are reminded to stand, with right hand over their heart, when the American flag held by the color guard passes by.

The Huntington Council on Aging will be hosting a Bird Communication Program presented by Lois Kiraly and a Summer Birthday Celebration on Thursday, June 13  at 2:00 p.m. at Stanton Hall. 

Participants will learn about if birds are born with their songs or if they have to learn them; how birds can sing more than one pitch at a time; how a Mockingbird can sing so many songs so quickly and how many; what birds are talking about; how birds can “fool” other birds with their calls and why they do that; and if they understand “bird to human talk.” 

The public is welcome to attend and learn some of the common bird songs that visit local yards and feeders.  The COA will also be celebrating senior summer birthdays with strawberry shortcake.

Please call 512-5205 for reservations by Thursday, June 6.  Everyone is welcome to attend free of charge.
