Homecoming Highlights, Hopkinton 34, Bellingham 6

Coming off their first loss of the season, the Hillers Football team had something to prove. And with the Friday night lights shining especially bright for the homecoming celebration, which included a pregame bonfire, a cookout, as well as coverage from Fox 25's High School Game Day, the Hiller's rose to the occasion, easily beating Bellingham 34-6. The team got off to a fast start, scoring on quarterback Hank Rudden's 69 yard touchdown throw to Andrew McMillan on the first drive of the game.

Parks and Recreation Hosts Halloween Party

Center School's gym got dressed up for Halloween a few days early for the 15th annual Parks and Recreation Halloween Party on October 25th. The party gave Hopkinton's youngsters a chance to dress up in character and have some fun. From princesses, to clowns, to cats, angels, and cowgirls, the kids got really into the spirit of the holiday. At the party, there were many games setup for the kids to play such as bean bag toss, guessing how many candy corns there were in the jar, and ring toss that were run by members of the High School field hockey team. And the prize for winning was of course candy.

Parks and Recreation Director Joan Bannon, who took over coordinating the event this year from former director Mike Preite, saw firsthand how much work goes into to making it all come together.

And all of Bannon's hard work paid off as turnout was high and the kid's seemed be having a good time. Watch the HCAM News video for a look at the event!

Here are some photos of downed trees from Hurricane Sandy. Several of these locations have been identified by the Department of Public Works as priorities for NSTAR's action to remove hazards on the wires as the roads are blocked by wires and impacting public safety. HCAM News hoped to catch the DPW and NSTAR crews at work, but wasn't able to cross paths before the heavy rain this afternoon. We did see a police cruiser and DPW trucks enroute to the Pond Street area, but the road was not passable without driving all the way around.

The Hopkinton Pirates, a youth club lacrosse team, raised over $15,800 through their Pirates For A Cure fundraiser. The Hopkinton lacrosse players decided to shave their heads to raise funds for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in honor of an extended member of the Pirates family who has been bravely fighting cancer. On October 28, over 30 players waited their turn to sit in the barber’s chair to shed their hair to complete the fundraising activity. Since the team raised over $10,000 the coaches kept their promise and had their heads shaved as well.
