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.
Hurricane Henri weakened and shifted away from Central Massachusetts after making landfall over the weekend, leaving Hopkinton with only light rain and occasional wind gusts Sunday. Heavy rain is possible for Monday, but the town appears to have escaped the threat of flooding and power outages.
The South Asian Circle of Hopkinton is using the power of movement to assist the Hopkinton Emergency Fund through a virtual 5K to be held next month. This will be the first annual 5K sponsored by SACH, a nonprofit formed in September 2018. The event will run from Sept. 18-26.
While some businesses have downsized during the pandemic, Baystate Audiology has been busier than ever. Its patient list has more than doubled since opening five years ago this November, and construction is underway to expand the office at 1 Lumber St.
Town meetings tonight include the Permanent Building Committee (6:30) and Planning Board (7).
