Local poet Polly Brown will lead a poetry writing workshop at the Hopkinton Public Library on Wednesday, April 15 at 6:30 PM. The writing of poetry is both playful and serious: a way of using language to sneak up on what you know about the world and yourself in it - and then give that away, adding to what the world knows about itself. We'll try out some strategies for getting started, and some ways of getting and giving support. You'll walk away with rough drafts and new ideas. Everyone is welcome - feel free to join us even if you've never tried poetry writing before.

Video Segment: Hopkinton Special Olympics and Hopkinton Police Play Annual Basketball Game

The Hopkinton Police department got a chance to test their basketball skills against the Hopkinton Special Olympics team. The annual basketball game between the Police Department and Special Olympics team was attended by many and a good time was had by all in a successful effort to benefit a great cause. Despite the losing effort by the Hopkinton Police Department, Coach of the Police team Phil Powers still had a great time; "It's a fun event for all of us, the Police Department loves doing it." Chief of the Hopkinton Police Department, Edward Lee enjoyed the game as well, with a big grin the Chief pointed out that the Police have to work on their Basketball skills "Its my second year doing this and we lost both times, I think conditioning was a problem, so we're going to work on that and maybe get a big win next year."

Hopkinton Special Olympics Program Director Alec Levine mentioned that the Special Olympics team and volunteers look forward to this game all season long; "This is the highlight of our season, we are fortunate enough to play an awful lot of games throughout the course of the year, we have been able to offer community games at Hopkinton High School, we go to the state games which is the highlight of many program seasons, but the real highlight of the Hopkinton season is this game against the Hopkinton Police Department, they are a wonderful set of officers and very respectful to the athletes, it shows the real community based support that Hopkinton offers its athletes."

Video Segment: Colella's Owner Dale Danahy Honored by School Committee

Colella's Supermarket was a landmark in Hopkinton and was one of the favorite local spots in town by many. If you're a local in Hopkinton chances are you visited Colella's and saw someone you knew. Colella's closed in March after about 70 years of service. Owner Dale Danahy and the Colella's staff have helped or provided lot space to over 30 Hopkinton organizations including the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Hopkinton Fire Department, Hopkinton Police Association and the 300th anniversary committee. (See more organizations Colella's helped here: http://www.colellas.com/community.html).

Colella's recently sold to Waltham based Crosspoint Associates for $3.3 million marking the official end of an era in Hopkinton. Dale Danahy was recently honored and recognized for her community involvement at the School Committee Meeting. Member Jean Bertschmann gave an emotional tribute; "you've worked so hard as a member of the community to support the chamber of commerce, to support so many organizations... get the school's into better compliance for people with physical disabilities." Bertschmann summarized Colella's relationship with the community perfectly; "Colella's really set the gold standard as a model of a family business, run by a family that includes the entire town in their family."

Dale Danahy spoke of the memories of seeing the community socializing in Colella's "it was great to see your neighbors shopping, when people didn't see their neighbors in the neighborhood but you would see them shopping." Despite Colella's closing Dale still plans on being a part of the Hopkinton community and supporting local organizations; "I will continue being in the town as a volunteer, I intend to go to the senior center, project just because, hang out at the library and read books that I have boxes of that I never had the time to do, do some traveling, I'm not going anywhere i'll still be around town." Danahy also stated that they tried to count how much money they donated to the community and that they stopped counting after they got over $1,000,000.
