Hopkinton Today: Tuesday, March 9


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.

Instead of playing last fall during its normal season, the Hopkinton High School girls volleyball team has been wedged into a so-called “Fall 2” season that runs from March into late April. But coach Margie Grabmeier said it’s not dampening the spirits of her players as the season begins.

Project Just Because is hosting another free food distribution day this Saturday (March 13) at its Hopkinton facility for all Massachusetts residents in need. Anyone needing assistance or aware of someone who needs help with food — including protein, dairy, dry goods, bakery and gluten-free options — can stop by 109 South St. and select free items between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

This week’s edition of Senior Snippets includes information about a variety of programs, including an indoor garden presentation this Friday.

Town meetings tonight include the Conservation Commission (7).
