As 2013 kicked off, January was another busy month in Hopkinton. Summer seemed particularly faraway this month with freezing cold temperatures and snow on both the 16th and on the 28th. But the weather didn't stop the community from making a difference. From the inspiring speeches and community service projects on Martin Luther King Day, to a concert to buy a piano for the Respite Center, and a message from Brownie Troop 65040 about the importance of not littering, residents showed that they were willing to lend a helping hand. This yes you can attitude was inspired by Rick and Dick Hoyt, the father and son team who have been running the Boston Marathon for 30 years. The duo made their first of two appearances in town on the 26th for a book signing at Colella's Supermarket. Construction of a statue honoring them is currently underway.

January was also a busy month for the schools as the search for a new superintendent continued with interviews from finalists Dr. Steven Hiersche, Dr. Andrew Keough, and Ms. Cathy MacLeod. On the 30th, MacLeod was named as Hopkinton's superintendent.

And in High School sports news, both the boys and girls indoor tracks teams' records remained unblemished at 8-0 after a wins over Millis. And the boys basketball team, currently with an 8-5 record, capped off a remarkable home victory against Medway on the 12th thanks to Hank Rudden's buzzer beater.
