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.
It’s a big weekend for the Hopkinton Center for the Arts. The 15th annual Arts in Bloom showcase, which includes work from four Hopkinton artists, opens today for in-person viewing. It runs through Dec. 19. Then tomorrow is the HCA’s annual fundraising gala, Art Lights the Night, which will be held online.
This weekend also is an important one in the Indian community, as it marks the start of Diwali. Hopkinton Lights Up As One, a campaign that includes a lights display at the Town Common, starts tonight and runs through Dec. 11. And a number of organizations have joined together to sponsor Massachusetts Celebrates Diwali 2020, an online event this evening.
Hopkinton’s latest COVID-19 update shows that there are 12 active cases in town. There’s also a reminder that Town Hall is physically closed Friday, although business will be conducted as usual without in-person appointments.
This week’s Business Profile highlights OnTo Mortgage, a company run by veteran broker and Hopkinton resident Rick Scherer.
Thursday night’s School Committee meeting was postponed to Monday.
Photo of the Day: This Department of Public Works truck was not speeding through the center of town, although the photographer’s slow shutter speed might make it appear that way.
