Welcome to Halifax
The Town of Halifax is located in the center of Plymouth County in Massachusetts. It has a population of approximately 7,500 people and a mix of rural, agricultural (including cranberry bogs) and residential development. Founded in 1734, its history spans from colonial times to the present day. Please explore the Town's web site and if you need more information, please contact us.
HOPS Playground Lemonade Stand Day
The HOPS Playground Lemonade Stand Day is Friday, August 1!
We're asking all the children who want to help rebuild HOPS to hold a lemonade stand at their usual spot and donate their earnings towards rebuilding the playground.
A great way to introduce your child to the concept of giving back to their community!
You can turn in your lemonade loot one of two ways:
1. Keep the cash and mail a check to "Friends of HOPS" 499 Plymouth Street, Halifax, MA 02338.
2. If you'd like to really complete the effect... you and your child can walk the money right into the Town Clerk's office at Town Hall and let your child hand it in themselves. (Remember though Town Hall is closed on Fridays.)
Also some of our neighbors with older children were looking for addresses of where lemonade stands were going to be so their older kids can go and donate. Please post the address of your planned lemonade stand in the comments section... if you feel comfortable doing so.
The Town of Halifax is searching for volunteers to serve on the following boards and committees: Beautification Committee, Cable TV Advisory Committee, Finance Committee, Halifax Cultural Council, Halifax in Lights, Historic District Commission, Youth and Recreation Commission and the Zoning Board of Appeals (alternates). Many of the Town's departments are run by volunteers. The commitment needed ranges from a few hours a year to several hours a month. If volunteers are unavailable, the activities and programs run by those departments cease and the Town cannot function as it should. Any resident interested in serving should contact the Board of Selectmen's Office at 781-294-1316 or download a copy of the Talent Bank form - look for "Volunteer Opportunities" just to the left of this notice.
