Neighboring town scenes for April - An old woolen mill
    village in Uxbridge at the end of Hecla Street. John
    Deiana of Hopedale, and his son Jeff operate a
    furniture refinishing and repair business in one of the
    buildings. Also in the area are Pasa Yarns, an antique
    consignment shop and an aluminum foundry. Click
    here for more views of the area, including more from
    inside the Deiana shop and some from inside Pasa
    Yarns.

Town Hall fire escape.

March 31 - A little snow early, but
gone before mid-morning. Why
March pictures on the April page?
Because any additions to the
March page on the last day of the
month would be seen by very few.
