July 10, 2018 -- In a testament to the longstanding practice of community involvement by the founders of Cornell's, as well as the current owners of Cornell's Irish Pub, Selectmen voted to grant a temporary license to serve beer and wine under a tent in the parking lot during a fundraiser to benefit Rich Shiloski, who is ill. The Police Department has agreed to waive any requirement for a police detail, because the parking direction will be taking place inside the lot.
Former owner Rob Cornell and siblings are donating the use of their acreage behind the pub, where the sports fields are located, for expanded parking.
The benefit will be held on July 28, 2018 from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm at Cornell's Irish Pub, 229 Hayden Rowe Street, Hopkinton.
