Lot's of Hopkinton Town Election 2012 information is getting prepared. Stop by the town hall in person or online to get a copy of the warrant.
Our weekday morning column, 5 Things You Need to Know, provides you with information that can help you plan your day and give you some fodder for water cooler conversations.
1. Today is May Day; the historically European holiday is still celebrated in some parts of the United States by putting together a basket and leaving it on someone's doorstep ding-dong ditch style. If you get caught while running away a kiss is exchanged.
2. Today members of the Board of Selectmen and the Chamber of Commerce will be having State of the Town meeting at the Faith Community Church to get ready for the upcoming town election. All residents are invited to attend so they can be more informed when they attend town meeting. The meeting starts at 8 a.m.
3. Have you noticed the political signs popping up around town? The election is in three short weeks. Submit your letters of support to editor Sean O'Donnell by May 17 to have them featured on the site.
4. Hopkinton boys' track coach Michael Donahue has been submitting results from the team's recent track meets. If you want the score for your child's team to be posted in our Five Things email firstname.lastname@example.org
