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.
Hopkinton’s population has increased over the past 10 years, according to new U.S. Census Bureau data. And with that may come growing pains, including the creation of a new voting precinct.
This week’s edition of the Police Log includes two arrests along with reports of a microwave fire, a missing autistic teen who later was located, and a two-car accident that sent one person to the hospital.
It’s been a quick turnaround for the Hopkinton High School football team, which played in a modified early spring season last school year due to the ongoing pandemic. The Hillers bring a young squad to the field this year, but first-year head coach Mark Sanborn is happy to have his guys back in a more “normal” setting.
Photo of the Day: Max Vumbaca, operations manager for Project Just Because, accepts a donation of 28 backpacks and school supplies from the Hopkinton Women’s Club, represented by Phyllis Coughlin. The items were given to local students in time for the first day of school, which for Hopkinton is today.
