Five Things to Know Today, June 28
How to sponsor a blood drive, where to find a nearby Farmers' Market tonight, and more things to know today.
1. Another hot one! Today will be mostly sunny with a high near 81, according to the National Weather Service.
2. Sponors needed: The American Red Cross is seeking schools, organizations, or businesses to step up and sponsor blood drives in Wakefield and around New England. Call 1-800-RED CROSS or visit redcrossblood.org for drive details.
3. Adult Summer Reading Program - If you need more motivation to help you through your summer reading list, the Beebe Library is offering special prizes to adults who read any book, magazine, listen to audio, or watch video then write a short review. The grand prize for the venture is a yearlong family membership to Historic New England. Check out more details here.
4. School Committe Meeting - The School Committee meets tonight at 7 p.m. at WCAT studios. On the agenda is an update on the Woodville School's Principal situation, and the committee votes on new lunch prices, among other topics. We'll have meeting coverage up on the site starting on Wednesday!
5. Famers' market next door - Since Wakefield's farmers' market doesn't start until next week (more on that on the site this week) take a quick trip into Stoneham tonight from 2-6 p.m. to shop for farm fresh veggies, fruits, and more. Mmm, pie.
