The Select Board approved a street name request to name a street “Hoyt’s Way” in honor of Marathon Legend, Dick Hoyt who recently passed away.

"Team Hoyt refers to father and son Dick Hoyt and Rick Hoyt from Holland, Massachusetts. The Hoyts competed together in various athletic endeavors, including marathons and Ironman Triathlons. Rick has cerebral palsy. During competition, Dick pulled Rick in a special boat as they would swim, carried him in a special seat in the front of a bicycle, and pushed him in a special wheelchair as they ran. Team Hoyt were inducted to the Ironman Hall of Fame and were recipients of ESPN's Jimmy V Award."
