HADLEY — Hopkins Academy’s history, including yearbooks, senior class photographs, scrapbooks and newspaper articles, will be on public display when the Edward Hopkins Education Foundation holds an open house Saturday.

The event will be the first of two open houses, with the other scheduled for April 14, running from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the former Goodwin Memorial Library, 50 Middle St.

Foundation President Kathy Tudryn said guides will be on hand for the two hours to answer questions.

“Members of the board of the Edward Hopkins Foundation will be present to direct folks to areas of interest,” Tudryn said.

The foundation’s collection, which also contains a nearly century-old toddler’s outfit, is temporarily housed in the old library building, after earlier being in the Hadley Historical Society building and then the former Hooker School, which was demolished to make way for the new Hadley Library.

“Grown in Hadley” asparagus logo T-shirts and sweatshirts that the foundation sells to raise money for the organization will also be available.

The foundation, founded by members of the Hopkins 350th Committee, has a mission “to enrich the educational experiences of the students in Hadley Public Schools,” with grants awarded to educators at Hadley Elementary School and Hopkins for projects outside the operating budgets.
