Touch A Truck was enjoyed by many!

Touch A Truck was held at the high school. The event was put on by the Hopkinton Library Foundation. Kids got the opportunity to sit in construction trucks, landscaping trucks, dump tucks, tractors and more.

A train was also driving attendees around the site, many of the kids enjoyed honking the truck horns and playing with the steering wheels. Despite all the
equipment and construction vehicles that were available to climb in, sometimes the simple things in life are the most appealing as it appeared a moving truck with bubble wrap was the most popular feature as kids and even some adults stomped around to hear the crackle.

The Event raised over $4,000 for the Library foundation and a good time was had by all who attended.

HCAM Needs Your Support!

Every ten years the Town negotiates a contract with Verizon to provide cable tv service to our community, and part of that contract is support for the two channels provided to our residents; HCAM-TV and HCAM-ED.

On Tuesday July 1st at 7:00pm in Town Hall Room 211 there will be a Public Hearing, in which Verizon wants to hear what you have to say about Community TV. Here in Hopkinton, Community Television means: HCAM.

This is your chance to tell Verizon why Community TV is valuable to our community and to show support for HCAM at the public hearing by either attending, writing a letter, or emailing us why Community TV is valuable.

As always, we are grateful for your support and look forward to continuing to serve you by providing programming that benefits our community.
