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 photo and video of the day.
There’s no better way for Hopkinton to announce its return to (mostly) normal times than for residents to get together at community events, and this Saturday provides multiple such opportunities. The headline event is Hopkinton Family Day, which makes its return after a two-year pandemic hiatus.
At its meeting on Wednesday, the Parks & Recreation Commission discussed the maintenance of the new Fruit Street turf field, Town Common property requests and Community Preservation Committee projects.
New Hopkinton High School baseball coach Matt Anderson said it was long a goal of his to take over the program at his alma mater, and he is especially thankful for the guidance shown by Steve Simoes, who was his baseball coach at HHS and also the offensive coordinator for the football team when Anderson played quarterback. “I don’t think I’d be where I am if not for Coach Simoes and the baseball and football programs,” Anderson said. “I want to continue what Coach Simoes built.”
The Hopkinton High School cross country teams opened their dual meet seasons on Wednesday at Hopkinton State Park by welcoming Norwood, and we have photos of both Hillers teams’ victories.
