Hopkinton Today: Monday, Sept. 7


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 today marking the start of the eight-day period in which registered participants can complete a marathon and receive finisher’s acknowledgement from the Boston Athletic Association, there was a brief kickoff event in Hopkinton over the weekend. The Alpha Omega Council hosted an adjusted Boston Marathon Wreath Ceremony, presenting one of the gilded wreaths to the Hopkinton-based 26.2 Foundation.

Hopkinton’s latest COVID-19 update has more details on the upcoming Town Meeting and information on the Boston Marathon postponing registration for the 2021 race. There’s also a note from superintendent of schools Carol Cavanaugh requesting that families begin a “soft quarantine” to help with school reentry.

The latest edition of Business Briefs features Hopkinton’s Joe Baldiga receiving a high honor on the Best Lawyers list and a pair of residents earning a sport on the Worcester Business Journal’s 40 under Forty.

Milford Regional Medical Center announced that its main lobby will reopen this Tuesday, although restrictions still exist.

Photos of the Day: Blue balloons were placed around the town, including on Main Street, in tribute to Mason Lee, the Hopkinton 13-year-old whose funeral was yesterday afternoon at Mount Auburn Cemetery.
