Infrastructure Day- Saturday, May 14 Text Size
Calling all Holyokers!!
Holyoke is celebrating the 1900 dam and the three levels of canals during a special event Saturday, May 14th- Infrastructure Day. Currently some of those who are coordinating this major event to celebrate the engineering marvels are:
- The Boston Society of Civil Engineers
- Holyoke Historical Commission
- Holyoke Gas and Electric
- Holyoke Public Schools
- Children’s Museum
- Girl Scouts of Central and Western Mass
- Heritage Park
- Connecticut River Watershed Council
- Mass Green High Performance Computing Center
- Holyoke History Room and others
These resources are often overlooked and sometimes seen as outdated, whereas they are extraordinary and unique to this city and still play a major role in Holyoke’s infrastructure.
This one-day event will highlight displays and student competitions centered around the STEM curriculum…Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
One central theme will be “Holyoke- Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.”
We are still in the early planning stages so for more information, contact the Holyoke Historical Commission at 413-322-5634
