Department of Public Works Director David Hickey rolled out the red carpet for Winthropâ€™s elementary and kindergarten students this week for an Open House as part of the national celebration of Public Works Week.
The students received a grand tour of the DPW headquarters on Kennedy Drive, where they learned about the environment and recycling, and saw how the DPW works to make Winthrop a better place for all the residents.
The staff at the DPW couldnâ€™t have been more cordial as they welcomed the young students and the teachers at the Fort Banks Gorman School for a day of knowledge and fun. And what a nice touch by Hickey and staff by including an appearance by Spider Man and a presentation by Curby the Robot, something the children will remember for a long time.
We remember our field trips as elementary school students and we donâ€™t believe we were ever invited to tour the DPW, so Winthrop kids had a real treat and we thank Mr. Hickey and his staff for their hospitality and creativity.
