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.
A divided Select Board on Tuesday agreed to approve a graduation car parade for Hopkinton High School’s Class of 2023, but with the understanding that this will be the final year for the event.
With one week remaining before the Select Board is to take a formal position on whether or not to sign an inter-municipal agreement with three neighboring towns to form a regional emergency dispatch center, local emergency personnel continued to push the board to oppose the plan.
At its meeting Monday night, the Planning Board chastised the proponents of two major projects that have dragged on for years to get their plans promptly in order, including the Grasshopper Energy solar array’s planting plan.
The Hopkinton High School girls swimming and diving team has been able to improve throughout the winter despite facing a number of challenges.
Despite having a roster with only 10 athletes, the Hopkinton High School boys swimming team put together some memorable moments this winter, with four swimmers earning spots at the sectional and state meets.
This week’s Senior Snippets includes information on programs having to do with tax assistance, art appreciation and a “life story” journal.
Town meetings tonight include the Affordable Housing Trust Fund Board (6:30), Board of Appeals (7) and Hopkinton Marathon Committee (7).
