Trouble financing the home because it’s a mobile home in a park?

I recently attended a house closing and met Al Lima from Northway Bank. He is a mortgage loan officer and specializes in mobile home mortgages. Northway Bank also will refinance mobile homes with a cash-out option if you have equity in your home.

Please bring in your bird feeders! 

Black bears extra hungry this spring in New Hampshire
It’s almost time to take down those birdfeeders.The New Hampshire Fish and Game department urges residents to remove their birdfeeders and other food attractants, such as trash cans, to prevent bears from foraging in back yards. Officials recommend birdfeeders be taken down by March 15 in the southern part of the state and by April 1st.

Officials say bears went into their dens this winter in poor condition due to a dearth of natural food sources. That means black bears are coming out of their dens with depleted fat reserves and will be extremely hungry.

A phone message was sent last week to remind residents about spring cleanup.

Philip Strittmatter will be picking up debris on the edge of the road. Please place debris in two piles, one for debris and one for sticks and branches.

If your house is in front of the woods, you’re welcome to put your yard debris there.

The last day will be Monday, May 4, 2020.

Shelter in Place

Select Board Recommends Residents Shelter in Place

Posted on: March 25, 2020 – 3:27pm

March 24, 2020  

Residents of Hopkinton:

The Town of Hopkinton takes very seriously the need to practice “social distancing” to help mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Social distancing means keeping physical distance (six feet is recommended) between yourself and others when outside your home, and only leaving the house when necessary.  Social distancing can help limit the spread of the novel coronavirus, which leads to the illness known as COVID-19.

The Select Board strongly recommends that ALL residents shelter in place and avoid all social gatherings until further notice.  This does not restrict you from making trips outside of the home to fulfill essential needs such as groceries, prescriptions, etc., or to go to your essential job. It does mean you should stay home and only leave the house when absolutely necessary. If you do go outside with others (e.g. on a walk) keep six feet between you and others. If you go to the grocery store, try to keep distance between yourself and others and wash your hands immediately upon returning home.

Here is a helpful article on social distancing:…

If you need NON emergency help, food, or other supplies, please contact Hopkinton Helps at or 746-8264.  As always, for EMERGENCY HELP call 911.

For on-going and up-to-date information regarding the COVID-19 pandemic go to or call 746-3170.

Please know that the Select Board Members are as anxious as you to get beyond this crisis and back to normal. In the meantime, we must all do our part to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
