Hopkinton Today: Wednesday, Nov. 17


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 Hopkinton High School girls volleyball team continued its undefeated season Tuesday night, defeating King Philip, 3-1, in the Division 2 state semifinal at Milford High School before a boisterous crowd of supporters.

Hopkinton is working on short-term and long-term solutions to address the issue with the town’s water supply following tests that showed higher-than-allowed levels of contaminants, Department of Public Works Director John Westerling told the Select Board at its Tuesday meeting.

Leading off the Select Board roundup, Hopkinton Health Director Shaun McAuliffe said local children have been turning out in big numbers for their COVID-19 vaccines. He predicted that around 70 percent of the 5-11 age group will be vaccinated by the end of next week.

Town meetings tonight include the Upper Charles Trails Committee (5), Cultural Council (6:30), Board of Appeals (7) and Trails Coordination and Management Committee (7:30).
