Five Things to Know Today in Hamilton and Wenham: Sept. 5
An essential get-me-going daily morning column from Hamilton-Wenham Patch.
Today is Wednesday, Sept. 5. Here are five things you need to know:
1. Rain: Wednesday will be a rainy day – plain and simple. The temperature will be in the 80s.
2. Mary Maione: Mary Maione is being honored on Wednesday for her years of volunteering. The event runs from 10 a.m. to noon at the Hamilton Council on Aging building, also known as The Meetinghouse or old library. State Senator Bruce Tarr and state Rep. Brad Hill plus the Hamilton Board of Selectmen and Town Manager have all been invited. After years of volunteering in a number of capacities throughout the town, Mary is retiring from the Hamilton Council on Aging Board of Directors. Refreshments will be served.
3. Cub Scouts: Signups happen on Wednesday for Cub Scouts Pack 28. Boys in grades one through five can sign up from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at Hamilton-Wenham Library on Wednesday. The first pack meeting is Sept. 14.
4. Gas Prices: Gas is about 25 cents per gallon more expensive right now in the two towns than it was at this time last September. On Sept. 5, 2011, the least expensive gallon of gas was $3.55 per gallon. On Tuesday, both Oliver Gulf and Hamilton Convenience were selling a gallon for $3.79.
5. Hamilton Zoning Board: The Hamilton Zoning Board of Appeals meets on Wednesday night at 7 p.m. in the Memorial Room at Hamilton Town Hall where it will continue to consider an application to sell used cars at Mike’s Auto and a plan for a new athletic center at Pingree School.
