Hopkinton Today: Friday, April 30


Good morning, Hopkinton! Welcome to the daily update we call Hopkinton Today — a quick recap of yesterday’s news, highlights of what’s on tap, and a video or two to brighten your morning.

Hopkinton voters got a chance to hear from the candidates running in the May 22 Town Election thanks to a virtual forum hosted by the Hopkinton Women’s Club on Wednesday night.

Hopkinton’s latest COVID-19 update shows 39 active cases in town, and it includes information on the updated face mask rules as well as the ongoing regional vaccine clinic.

The 16th annual Arts in Bloom exhibit runs from May 7 through June 24 at the Hopkinton Center for the Arts’ Lotvin Family Gallery. This year’s event has a theme of healing, looking forward, empathy and community. There were 178 submissions by 70 artists from 35 towns and six states, and juror Tatianna Flis selected 35 to be displayed.
