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.
Sheila Zarba-Campbell was living a quiet life in Hopkinton on Sept. 11, 2001, the day al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked and flew two planes into the World Trade Center in New York, killing almost 3,000 people and injuring thousands more. The world changed that day as Americans witnessed the deadliest terror attack in history. For Zarba-Campbell, her world changed more than most. Her husband was aboard American Airlines Flight 11, the plane that hit the North tower at 8:46 a.m.
In this week’s Independent Thoughts, the town will recognize veterans at a 9/11 memorial service, and a Boy Scout built a story walk outside the Hopkinton Public Library.
Hopkinton’s latest COVID-19 update shows eight active cases in town and includes updates on how to prevent the spread of the disease.
Town meetings tonight include the School Committee (6:30) and Open Space Preservation Committee (7).
