5 Things You Need to Know Today: May 3
Meet the people in charge of Hopkinton Patch today and find out two great ways to support cancer research.
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. Come by the Hopkinton Gourmet at noon today to meet Hopkinton Patch Editor Sean O'Donnell and Ad Manager Brian Hemmert. We will be having some coffee and talking to residents. We'd love to help you learn how to utilize Patch better and get as much out of the site as possible.
2. Are you an artist looking to help a good cause? Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is looking for submissions to be considered for their 2012 Holiday Collection. All the information about submission can be found on our announcements page.
3. In January we were sad to report that Allison Lundy had lost her battle with cancer. Today we are happy to report that the Hopkins School has been planning a talent show for tomorrow night to benifit Brain Cancer Research through the Jimmy Fund. Tickets are $5 a person with a max of $25 for a family. The show begins at 7 p.m. in the High School auditorium.
4. The Center School invites parents and incoming kindergarteners to participate in a tour of the school today. The tour is designed for you and your incoming kindergartner to view the kindergarten classrooms, to meet some of the faculty, and to learn more about Center School. During the tour, you and your child will have the opportunity to walk through the school with a faculty member, and to explore a parked school bus that will be available at Center School for the afternoon. Full details can be found on the events page.
5. It looks like May weather will finally be making an appearnce today! After morning showers burn off the temperature is supposed to reach 60 degrees this afternoon and with an upward trend continuing for the next couple days.
