The Holyoke Merry-Go-Round is our 2023 charity .  Their web page and donation link is at LINK and you can also send a check to Holyoke Merry-Go-Round / 221 Appleton Street / Holyoke MA 01040-5714. As always I select an organization that is near the canal system of Holyoke and that serves in some capacity the younger people of the city.

In the coming years, the charities will be obvious ones like Lighthouse Holyoke, the Holyoke Public Library, and the Volleyball Hall of Fame. Also, Enchanted Circle Theater (LINK) who support the education of theater lovers.

There will also be less obvious ones like the Care Center (of Holyoke) and more. Read about the Care Center’s opening of their time capsule in 2011.
