HRTC to host "Horribles Parade" on July 4th

By contributor,

Let’s get ready to “Horrible”! July 4th, Independence Day, is just a few weeks away, are you ready for the return of the town’s “Horribles” Parade? The “Ancient and Horribles” parade is a New England tradition dating back to the 1800’s. Commonly referred to as the “Horribles” parade in Hopkinton, it is a parade originated to have some fun with national and local “political satire”, sort of like a floating “political roast”.

The theme for this year’s parade is “America the Beautiful”.

Community Notice: Water Supply Update June 20th 2024

By contributor,

Please be advised that this current heat wave has put an enormous strain on the water system. Pumps are struggling to stay pace with demand and we have been unable to refill the storage tanks to safe levels. This poses a threat to both fire fighting capability and any water emergencies that may happen. Yesterday's power outages saw us lose several pumping hours, well stations had to be reset after generators came on.
