If you crave cool summertime musical fun, now there's HELP!

New England's premiere Beatles tribute band HELP!is coming to Hopkinton on Sunday, August 7, as part of the free Concerts on the Common series. The show starts at 5PM and runs until 7:30PM. And yes, we would like you to dance!

What makes babies bounce and clay to "Yellow Submarine" or "Twist & Shout"? Whatever is is, that same magic revs up their older siblings and their parents and grandparents too. The whole family grooves to the great sound of the Beatles.

Harry Potter Trivia Winners

On Wednesday night, young witches and wizards gathered in the Hopkinton Library to take the N.E.W.T exams. They were quizzed on various forms of trivia from the Harry Potter books, including quotes, people, and places.

The questions started out easy, but grew more difficult as time progressed, and more and more of the contestants were having difficulty with remembering the answers. Even the audience was confused and couldn't answer some of the harder questions, but four contest winners did emerge before the end of the night;
Liam Horsman, Ashley Olafsen, Maddy Boyce and Kyran Schnur.

Many artists dream of making a living practicing their craft, but often times find it impossible to make ends meet. Such was the case of Milford resident Michael Geary, 2010 graduate of Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts (MCLA). Although Michael, a graphic artist and sculptor, as well as actor, costume designer, set designer, and director, had plenty of talent and an award-winning body of work, the prospects of earning an income as an artist in MetroWest were dim.
