Thank you to the people of the Hopkinton Independent for your tireless service to the community over the years, and in particular to Mary Ellen Gambon for bringing her many years of education and expertise to the job. At a time when so many people seem to do nothing but complain about Hopkinton, I always look to the Independent for thoughtful, professional reporting that teases out our multiple perspectives. Thanks for being our rock!
— Amy Groves, Hopkinton
