5 Things You Need to Know Today: May 25
Find out what's going on for Memorial Day.
Our weekday morning column, 5 Things You Need to Know, provides you with information that can help you plan your day and give you some fodder for water cooler conversations.
1. Memorial Day is coming up on Monday, that means a three-day-weekend for nearly everyone (including Patch). The Town Hall will be closed on Monday, as will many other institutions in downtown. Don't miss out on the parade and other festivites Monday.
2. Every year on the Friday before Memorial Day the scouts gather to replace old flags on the veteran's graves at Evergreen Cemetery with new ones. This event is coordinated by the American Legion, who will provide the new flags as well as bags for disposing of the old ones. All Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts are welcome. This is a great activity for even the youngest scouts, because it is an active hands-on activity. Scouts should wear their uniforms.
4. Have you voted in this week’s ‘Best of’ poll? It’s the last one in a while. Voting for the best place around to go for entertainment.
5. We’ve bee trying to keep you updated with the weather all week, the most recent forecast shows that Saturday will be the pick of the weekend. Temperatures will be hot, nearing 90, but the low chance of rain is a huge win. Sunday and Monday both look more prone for thunderstorms.
