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.
The town is dealing with a surge of COVID cases, Hopkinton Health Director Shaun McAuliffe told the Board of Health on Monday. “All of our metrics are going upward,” McAuliffe said.
Hopkinton 101, organized by the Hopkinton Public Library, is a community event where residents and locals can learn about municipal departments as well as local nonprofit and volunteer opportunities. Town department representatives, nonprofit leaders and educational outreach coordinators will participate in this event, which is being held at the Town Common on Saturday, May 14, from 9 a.m.-noon.
Hopkinton Cub Scouts will host a fishing event/information session on Wednesday, May 18, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at Sandy Beach on Lake Maspenock. Instructors will teach fishing basics from 6:30-6:45 p.m., then participants can fish for the rest of the evening. While the kids are fishing, parents can learn more about Hopkinton’s Cub Scout program (Pack 4 and Pack 97) for the coming year.
The Hopkinton Public Library Foundation’s annual Touch-A-Truck and Food Truck Festival returns to the Hopkinton High School parking lot on Saturday, June 11, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Children can climb on trucks of all kinds, see a police cruiser and fire truck, take a ride on a railroad, and enjoy lunch and desserts from local food trucks and vendors.
