Hopkinton Today: Tuesday, Jan. 12


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.

At a public hearing during Monday’s Hopkinton School Committee meeting, superintendent Carol Cavanaugh presented a tentative FY22 budget of $54,153,911, an increase of a little less than 6 percent from the current budget of $51,206,402.

The Hopkinton High School winter season got underway this past week, and the boys and girls basketball teams both rebounded from opening losses to Norwood on Friday night to beat Norwood in Sunday’s rematches.

Former Hopkinton Police Chief Edward Lee was tabbed to be chief in Norwell. According to a report in the Quincy Patriot Ledger, Lee was chosen by Norwell selectmen at last Thursday’s meeting.

The new Library Corner has information on the library’s upcoming schedule — the building is closed to the public until at least Jan. 22, but remote and curbside services continue. There also are online activities for a variety of ages and interests.

The latest edition of Senior Snippets has information on a number of educational, health-related and recreational activities taking place in the coming weeks.
