Hopkinton Today: Thursday, Oct. 15

199

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.

Hopkinton’s health director is optimistic that the town can host a safe Halloween, but he does have some guidelines residents should follow. Among the events planned this year is the Hopkinton Community Partnership’s trunk-or-treat, called Dress Up and Drive Thru, at Faith Community Church on Oct. 24.

The Hopkinton Center for the Arts is hosting a Wicked Run to $5K Virtual Race — a costumed run, walk or even dance that aims to not only celebrate the spirit of Halloween but also help to raise funds for Enter Stage Left Theater and the HCA. There also will be a family-oriented scavenger hunt in town on Oct. 31.

The town’s latest COVID-19 update includes information on a mental health initiative, the COVID-19 Vaccine Advisory Group, and tips for a safe Halloween. Hopkinton remains a lower-risk community, currently with four active cases.

Our latest Business Profile highlights Studio Ampersand, which offers expert tutors qualified to teach all ages from elementary through high school in all subjects.

Town meetings tonight include the School Committee, Parks & Recreation and the Board of Library Trustees, all at 7.
