Hopkinton Today: Monday, Feb. 5

by | Feb 5, 2024 | Featured: Features, Hopkinton Today

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 of the day.

The Open Space Preservation Commission at its meeting Thursday discussed two subdivisions under development by the Nation family involving the donation of open space. Debate arose over the OSPC’s submitting letters endorsing the land swaps to the Planning Board and whether the language in one letter was consistent with a vote at the OSPC’s January meeting.

The Hopkinton High School boys and girls swim teams capped off their league competition recently with strong showings in the Tri-Valley League championship meet, and they are hoping to carry that momentum into the sectional and state meets.

This week’s Library Corner includes information on programs about the Gardner Museum heist, the Black experience in American fiction writing, Narcan training and more.

The Hopkinton Trails Club will host a group walk at Peloquin Woods this Saturday at 1 p.m. This HALT property may be small, but it has a lot to offer — historic foundations, woods, wetlands and trail connections into the former Weston Nurseries land.

Residents of all towns are invited to become a Dementia Friend by attending an informational program at the Hopkinton Public Library on Saturday, March 16, at 11 a.m. Attendees will learn about the five key dementia messages, the different types of dementia and their impact, what it’s like to live with dementia, and how to interact and communicate with people living with dementia.

Town meetings tonight include the Sustainable Green Committee (6), Planning Board (7) and Community Preservation Committee (7).

Photo of the Day: Scouts from Troops 4 and 11, along with other volunteers, cleared trees, brush and 11 bags of trash from the J. Dickman house site at the Fruit Street property Saturday as part of the monthly trails volunteer day. Dickman recently received recognition as a participant at the Boston Tea Party and for other contributions during the American Revolution.
