Judi Allessio retired from the Senior Center last fall after nearly 15 years as administrative assistant.

Read about that and more — including a local Girl Scout who was a top cookie seller and why there won’t be a Horribles Parade again this July 4 — at Independent Thoughts.
Leading off College Honors, recent MassBay Community College graduate Cam Griffin found his passion for helping others when he struggled to find his own path, and people around him provided a caring and supportive network.

Events in town this weekend include the Sharon Timlin Memorial Event on Saturday morning, the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition Against the Tide event at Hopkinton State Park on Saturday morning, the HOP Drive-Up Movie on Saturday night and the Freedom Team’s LGBTQ+ Pride Parade on Sunday.
