I just read [the Hopkinton Independent] Marathon edition and I was really impressed. Clearly, the Boston Marathon is the signature event of the year in our town. You have captured the basic character of our town and did it very well. Anyone who reads this edition will wish they lived here.
— Eric Sonnett, Hopkinton
