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.
A Hopkinton High School student’s compassion and his mother’s hobby have combined into an effort to spread messages of inclusivity through a home T-shirt business. Jen Halliday said her 14-year-old son, Dimitri, better known as Dee, began creating shirts with unique designs about seven years ago as holiday gifts.
In an effort to spark some interest in two bonded dogs that need a permanent home, Baypath Humane Society decided the lovers should get married. For a week, the shelter posted dozens of photos on its Facebook page of the dogs preparing for the Nov. 20 event. There was a bachelor and bachelorette party, a day of beauty, a ring bearer, a ceremony and a reception.
Leading off this week’s sports roundup, Hopkinton High School baseball coach Steve Simoes, who guided the Hillers to the Division 2 state championship game the past two seasons, was named to the Massachusetts Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame 2022 class.
