Walk 500 miles across Spain?!

Every year, thousands of modern-day pilgrims walk a centuries-old trail leading to the tomb of St. James in Santiago, Spain. What is the Camino de Santiago, and why are so many drawn to make this arduous journey today? Hear about the history, culture, and legacy of this ancient pilgrimage from peregrina Nancy Nee Hanifin, co-chair of the Boston Chapter of the American Pilgrims on the Camino on Wednesday, May 13 at 7:00 PM in the Hopkinton Public Library.

Water & Sewer 2015 Spring Update

contribute's picture

This past winter was truly challenging for all, including the Water and Sewer Department. The unrelenting snow and record breaking cold, had crews working long hours snow plowing, hydrant clearing, and thawing out frozen water lines. The frost was over 4 ½ deep in some areas and proved very difficult to make repairs and thaw water lines. We would like to send out a huge thank you to all those, who again helped keep the fire hydrants clear. Your help was essential in providing fire safety.

Editorial: Supporting Jean Bertschmann for School Committee

I am writing to support the reelection of Jean Bertschmann for School Committee. I know Jean ‘in passing.’ I have run into her at every school event, literally every event, over the last ten years and in the last six years have had multiple conversations with her before or after each of the district’s searches for new Principals, Superintendents, and most recently, the hiring of our new Director of Student Services (SpEd Director).
