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 photo and video of the day.
Two years ago, Ed Harrow came across a patch of Hopkinton that was so overgrown with invasive plants, he could hardly walk through the undergrowth. Now, the chair of the Hopkinton Open Space Preservation Commission is on the third round of grant-funded clearing.
After a truncated 2020-21 season, Hopkinton High School girls basketball coach Mike Greco said he is happy to be back playing a season as close to normal as the program has had over the past two years. Hopkinton has a strong contingent of seniors whom Greco hopes will help his team compete in the Tri-Valley League and qualify for the state tournament.
After a season affected by pandemic restrictions, Hopkinton High School boys basketball coach Tom Keane is happy to be back playing under relatively normal circumstances. Keane also is pleased to be playing a more normal season with a roster he really likes.
This week’s edition of Senior Snippets has information on programs including Stroke Signs and Symptoms and a medication disposal drop-off.
