Hopkinton Today: Wednesday, March 23

by | Mar 23, 2022 | Hopkinton Today

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.

It’s been an emotionally challenging time for the Parkhomenko family — parents Maryna and Victor, 8-year-old Nikita and 6-year-old Robert — Ukrainians who have lived in Hopkinton for two years. But a gesture from the Elmwood School community — in the form of thousands of donated diapers and other baby items — has offered a little solace while the Parkhomenkos’ home country has been under attack by neighboring Russia.

Hopkinton resident Shova Khanal Sharma, in her position as vice president of the Federation of Indian Associations-New England, recently coordinated an International Women’s Day celebration of roses, gourmet food and recognition of gender biases.

A proposal to hire an economic development officer, raised by the Hopkinton Growth Study Committee in 2020, is inching forward, with Planning Board Chair Gary Trendel calling for a meeting between some town officials and the Chamber of Commerce.

Town meetings tonight include the Appropriation Committee (5:30), Parks & Recreation Commission (5:30) and Board of Appeals (7).

Photo of the Day: Participants in last Friday’s Polar Plunge, a fundraiser for Special Olympics Massachusetts, pose for a photo behind Hopkinton High School before getting wet.
