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.
Following the Democratic and Republican town caucuses late last week, the list of candidates for the May 22 Town Election has been set. The only contested race is School Committee. The Hopkinton Women’s Club will host the 33rd annual Meet the Candidates Night on April 28 at 7 p.m.
At its meeting Monday night, the Parks & Recreation Department addressed a couple of safety concerns that recently arose at the Hopkinton Town Common, including a loosened piece of brick and dying Maple trees with limbs in danger of breaking. The commission also approved the resurfacing of the parking lot at College Rock Park.
The re-dedication of the Lauren Anderson Softball Field at Field 6 behind Hopkinton High School, delayed one year by the pandemic, will be held Saturday, May 1, at 10 a.m. Following the ceremony, which will feature members of Anderson’s family as well as the Field Restoration Project team, there will be a four-inning exhibition game pitting the HHS softball team against a Hillers alumni squad that will include some of Anderson’s former teammates.
Town meetings tonight include the Select Board (6).
