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.
People are returning to the Boating in Boston programs at Hopkinton State Park, although numbers still aren’t what they were prior to the pandemic. Typically there would be 800-1,000 people on site per day. Through the first half of the summer this year, there were approximately 600 people daily.
Leading up to the Oct. 11 Boston Marathon, the Independent will profile local charity runners. This week we highlight Morgan Woodman, who is running to raise funds for Friends of Hopkinton. “It is my greatest pleasure to give back to the community that has given so much to me,” Woodman writes.
The town is offering an Emergency Housing Relief Program funded by Community Preservation Act funds approved at the 2021 Annual Town Meeting. The program provides COVID-19-related emergency mortgage and rental assistance for low- and moderate-income households.
Town meetings tonight include the Parks & Recreation Commission (5:30) and Planning Board (7).
