No Support for Expanded Gaming in Hopkinton

The Board of Selectmen held an open forum on Wednesday night to discuss the newly revived bill for expanded gaming at the State House and to gather input from residents how they felt about a possible casino in Milford.

Before the discussion was opened up to community members, Selectman Chair Todd Cestari asked his fellow board members to weigh in briefly. None of the board members supported expanded gaming and all were concerned with the possibility of a casino locating in the neighboring town of Milford.

Morris Dancing Comes to Hopkinton

Morris dancing is an old English country tradition dating back to the 15th century. Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, hundreds of villages throughout England supported Morris teams and the dancers often competed from prizes at county fairs. While the interest in Morris dancing faded for a short time, it is now back full force and today there are many teams, or sides, dancing in England and over 200 cities in the United States.
