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.
Parents are being asked to change course and have their children take the bus, if possible, to alleviate traffic backups that impacted the opening of school, superintendent Carol Cavanaugh told the Hopkinton School Committee on Thursday night.
An accident (above) in front of Cumberland Farms on West Main Street slowed traffic yesterday afternoon.
The Southeastern Massachusetts Mutual Aid Project (SEMMAP) is running a food drive in Hopkinton, and it’s been extended to Sept. 28. Donors can drop off food items at Project Just Because, located at 109 South St.
The Marathon Quilters Guild’s 2020 show is at the Hopkinton Center for the Arts through Oct. 25. Gallery hours are 9 a.m.-6 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturdays. There is an online option as well.
