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.
A colorful crowd gathered Saturday afternoon at the Hopkinton High School outdoor track and took a short walk as part of a much longer journey — one for LGBTQIA+ recognition and acceptance. The inaugural LGBTQIA+ Pride Parade drew town leaders, representatives from local organizations and those who just wanted to show support for the movement. The groups walked around the track while about 150 people watched from the stands.
Hopkinton High School discus thrower Kate Powers and the boys 4×100-meter relay team recorded top-three finishes in Saturday’s all-state meet, while the HHS girls tennis team fell in a close match in the sectional final. Baseball takes center stage today, visiting Milton in the sectional final at 5 p.m.
In this week’s Schools Notebook, the Hopkinton Women’s Club and PolyArts announced their scholarship winners, and Keefe Tech recognized a number of Hopkinton students for academic achievement.
Town meetings tonight include the Housing Authority (6), Zoning Advisory Committee (7) and Woodville Historic District Commission (7).
