1. The Hopkinton Center for the Arts recently celebrated its one-year birthday with a birthday cake and a look back at all it has accomplished in its first year. The mission of the Hopkinton Center for the Arts is to provide a multi-media arts facility that will allow a collaboration of individuals and organizations to create and present quality visual and performing arts, arts education and events. “This has been a very exciting and momentous year for the HCA, and we couldn’t be more pleased with all that we’ve accomplished,” Executive Director Kelly Grill said. “The terrific synergy between Enter Stage Left Theater and the Cultural Arts Alliance has been crucial to the successful formation of the HCA. We are blessed to have some wonderful staff and resources to help us continue the growth of Enter Stage Left and the Hopkinton Center for the Arts in the years to come.”
2. Looking to adopt a pet? Check out Humble at Greyhound Friends . Humble could be renamed Hoover after the way he loves his doggie treats! He'll even give you a little bark if he thinks you're holding out on him. At four-years-old He's full of personality and spunk, and loves playing with chew toys as well. He'll be an impressive big boy once he fills in a little more. He has striking brindle markings and freckles on his nose.
3. The relay for life is coming up next month and many of the volunteers have been placing signs around town. Patch Blogger Dana Hall asks residents to please leave the signs to help spread awareness.
