Go to the Council on Aging for its annual Holiday Sale on Saturday, Nov. 5 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The sale is at Harvey’s Treasure Chest just inside the building at 1276 Main Street. While you are there, take in the photography exhibit of Emerson Hospital cardiologist Dr. Steven Herson. The exhibit is up through Dec. 2.
This is the last chance to digest the plan for the new high school before Town Meeting on Monday. Go here to check out the plans and be well informed before you vote. Remember, it is a simple majority vote despite the borrowing because the motion comes from the School Committee so a two-thirds majority is not required. But the post-Town Meeting balloting is required and that takes place on Nov. 15 in both towns.
