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.
The Boston Athletic Association announced last week that entrants in the 125th Boston Marathon will need to provide proof of vaccination or produce a negative COVID-19 test in order to participate in the Oct. 11 race. The BAA previously announced that the field would be limited to 20,000, and that it would eliminate the staging area (Athletes Village) behind Hopkinton High School.
The town announced Friday that it was extending the application deadline to Sept. 27 at 4 p.m. for a new director of the Hopkinton Public Library. The job has been open since Heather Backman left to take a job with the Weymouth Public Libraries in early July.
Greyhound Friends, the dog shelter on Saddle Hill Road, will host its fall open house on Saturday, Sept. 18, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Among the events planned will be a remembrance ceremony in the Memorial Garden.
Town meetings tonight include the Select Board (6 p.m.).
