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."
