Hopkinton Today: Tuesday, April 20


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.

For nearly 40 years, the Hopkinton Summer Basketball Camp has been an annual fixture in town. Established by legendary Hopkinton High School coach Dick Bliss in 1983, it often is referred to as “Bliss Camp.” The COVID-19 pandemic canceled the sessions last summer, but the HHS basketball coaches and community are excited to bring them back this year.

Hopkinton’s latest COVID-19 update shows 31 active cases in town and includes updates on the regional vaccination clinic and the Marathon Love Letters project.

This week’s edition of Library Corner includes information on changes to the library’s curbside pickup process as well as details about programs including a presentation on NASA’s Artemis program.

Town meetings tonight include the Select Board (6), Commissioners of Trust Funds (6:30) and Design Review Board (7).

Photo of the Day: The statue of George V. Brown, the legendary Boston Marathon starter, looks out onto construction vehicles instead of the starting line. A few runners were spotted at the Town Common on Monday morning, apparently planning to run the marathon course on what should have been race day if not for the pandemic.
