WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Westfield Mayor-elect Don Humason has continued the free skating party he began nearly 20 years ago.
Many of the young skaters at Amelia Park grew up attending these Don Humason parties on ice.
“I think it’s good because it’s fun to skate,” said 11-year-old Westfield native Callie Manfredi.
Humason added it’s a way to give back to the community.
“It’s Christmas time, people are in a great mood, it’s good to see the little kids and the older ones having a good time,” he told 22News.
The mayor-elect who recently stepped down as state senator intends to continue holding these free skating parties as Westfield’s chief executive.
All he asks is that skaters continue donating nonperishable food for the local pantry that helps Westfield families in need.
