contribute's picture

Baypath Humane Society is in immediate need of temporary/foster homes for a few of our shelter dogs who have a tough time adjusting to shelter life.

We need a foster home ASAP for Yogi, a sweet, dashing young spaniel-mix who’s had many sad experiences in his short life. This has made him very shy, but once he warms up to you, he’s very affectionate.

How does one express the urgent and dire nature of a friend and mother's situation without creating more fear, panic and worry. For those of you who know Marianne she is perhaps the kindest person I have ever met. I've always had kindness in my head and my heart but it was Marianne who demonstrated to me how to put it into application. Whether she'd be dropping off a homemade dinner to a friend not feeling well or finding a baby deer on the side of the road and staying with that fawn, helping them transition lovingly and peacefully back to nonphysical.

Video Segment: Ron Eldridge Honored by Chamber of Commerce

State Representative Carolyn Dykema and Chair of Visioning Steering Group Tim Kilduff, had nothing but kind words to honor a longtime volunteer for many Hopkinton based organizations Ronald Eldridge. Ron was honored at the Chamber of Commerce annual Holiday Dinner State Representative Caroyln Dykema also presented Ron with a citation from the House of Representatives.

Ron talked to HCAM News about the event and also talked about his time as an HCAM volunteer. Ron has volunteered for HCAM for about 14 years, his work included broadcasting sports among other roles, he volunteered for the appropriations committee for 16 years, Ron also participated in various town government study committees including the voices for vision group. "I am very fortunate to be able to do a lot of things, I'm blessed with a family that supports me and wanted to see me helping out in the community."

Ron expressed how the community is successful because of the amount of volunteerism and the willingness of many to help others. "One of our former Selectmen said that town meeting was the greatest form of Democracy, I say volunteerism is the greatest exercise of Democracy and we have had a lot of people that stepped forward in civic organizations, sports organizations or town government that worked very hard to make Hopkinton a great place to live and work."

Ron talked about his experience broadcasting play by play for the basketball games at Hopkinton High School. He mentioned when he first started he was sitting in the stands next to a camera man and then years later they had their own area which enhanced the broadcasts. "One of the toughest parts of doing play by play is who you have for an analyst and for a while I had 2 coaches, Chuck Joseph and Coach Bliss, so as a play by play man I usually got about 3 words in, hello and goodnight and they took care of the rest."

Be on the lookout for the full ceremony airing on HCAM and on our website.
