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 and video of the day.
Jahnavi Prudhivi, a senior at Hopkinton High School and member of Robotics Team 2602H Hydra, said it is exciting to anticipate talking to judges about the process of transforming “just a bunch of metal pieces into a fully functioning robot.” Prudhivi is just one Hopkinton student out of 26 on four teams who will compete in Dallas from May 4-8 at the VEX Robotics World Championships.
Members of the Business Professionals of America Club from Hopkinton High School will be in Dallas in early May. The 27 BPA students will be competing May 4-8 at the National Leadership Conference.
Leading off Independent Thoughts, Friends of the Hopkinton Public Library’s appreciation breakfast on April 5 was designed to serve multiple purposes. Also in Independent Thoughts, the Hopkinton Center for the Arts is hosting a special program April 29-30 with a presentation of Project Empathy, which was created by Hopkinton’s Catherine Cote.
This week’s edition of the Police Log includes one arrest along with reports of a dog cornering a fisher cat, golf balls all over a resident’s yard and a car accident that damaged a pole on Proctor Street.
Town meetings tonight include the Capital Improvement Committee (6:30), Democratic Town Committee (6:30) and Community Preservation Committee (7).
