Greyhound Friends Needs Your Support!

contribute's picture

Greyhound Friends began leasing the old kennel and land at 167 Saddle Hill Road, Hopkinton on May 1, 1987. Finances were slim and sporadic at the beginning. For several years I lived in the tiny office of the kennel. It was quite awful. But Greyhound Friends took hold, as people steadily adopted dogs and the word spread about these wonderful pets. A steady flow of funds, however, was and still is usually difficult to attain.

The Board of Health met Thursday, August 21st, to discuss new and old business relating to the board.

The board had intended to meet to discuss 6 Emma Drive; the homeowner is seeking to undergo new construction, but currently has a non-conforming septic system. This hearing was postponed, however, because board member Deborah Holbrook resigned from the Board of Health effective August 18th.
