One of the great advantages to being an independent, non-franchise local brokerage firm is the flexibility it provides in sponsoring local community events. The Hopkinton Community Spelling Bee is a collaborative effort between the two main school support non-profits in town: the Hopkinton Parent Teacher Association (HPTA) and the Hopkinton Education Foundation (HEF). We love to sponsor this event because it brings together so many different organizations in Hopkinton. Last year for example, some of the teams (yes spelling is done by consensus in teams of three) competing were the Hopkinton Athletic Association, Boy & Girl Scouts, the Senior Center, the Schools, the Police Department, the Garden Club, the Board of Selectman, and our local newspaper the Hopkinton Independent.
During the event, refreshments are available and a 'Mini-Bee' takes place during intermission giving K-5 students an opportunity to compete in their own age-appropriate bees. Last year over $7000 was raised to benefit the HEF & HPTA who bring innovative and enriching programs to our Hopkinton Public Schools.
