In 1988, Holyoke, Massachusetts, was a once thriving city coping with recession. A resident named John Hickey decided it was time to turn those circumstances around by saving the park’s vintage merry-go-round and placing it in the heart of the downtown area. This is the inspiring story – told by lecturer Jay Ducharme – of that unprecedented effort which united a community and saved an important part of their history. $7 general/ $5 members
