The Upper Charles Trail Committee has scheduled a meeting for Wednesday at 11 a.m. to “consider and vote whether to proceed with the committee’s request to the Community Preservation Committee for funding at the Annual Town Meeting for Campus Connector Segments 5 and 6.” The meeting will take place hours before the town hosts a public workshop (5-8 p.m.) for residents to ask questions and receive information about the committee’s work to extend the Upper Charles Trail from Milford to Ashland.

Sandra Gittlen started running at the age of 41 while struggling with a rare autoimmune disease. When she decided to participate in the Boston Marathon, Gittlen discovered she could combine exercise with her passion for animal advocacy and raise money for Baypath Humane Society of Hopkinton.
