Hopkinton Today: Monday, April 26

198

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.

With Town Meeting and Town Election approaching next month, there are two upcoming events to help residents learn more about their options. The Hopkinton Women’s Club will host its 33rd annual — and first virtual — Candidates Night on Wednesday at 7 p.m. Next Monday at 7 p.m., eHop will hold its ninth annual Know Your Vote forum, where individuals can get answers from town officials leading up to Town Meeting.

The Hopkinton Water and Sewer Department announced that there will be a required fire flow test Tuesday. Crews will be testing the fire pump systems on South Street. Because these tests will take place on main transmission lines, customers may notice some discoloration during and after the tests throughout town.

The Hopkinton Garden Club’s annual spring plant sale is scheduled to take place on Saturday, May 8, from 8 a.m. to noon on the Hopkinton Town Common. Club members will be selling perennials, many dug from their own gardens, and annuals, to include a wide variety of flowers, vegetables and herbs.

Town meetings tonight include the Planning Board (7).
