2011: A Year in Review

As 2011, comes to a close , it's safe to say that it was quite the year in Hopkinton. We said goodbye to some familiar faces and welcomed in some new ones as well. There were plenty of activities, events and annual traditions, some that have been around for over a decade, that brought the entire community together. Some businesses were honored for their long-standing commitment to serving the community, as others were being torn down and then re-built, while another laid down the foundation for the future.
