It is Thursday, Aug. 15. Here are five things you need to know in Hamilton and Wenham:
1. Perfect: Another beautiful sunny day is forecast for Thursday, with sunny skies and temperatures in the 70s. It is another great day – something most of us likely feel we deserve after a very wet spring and a sweltering hot July. The temperature will be in the 70s with a light southwest wind.
2. Hospice Walk: The 2013 Hospice Walk comes up next month, but on Thursday night there will be a benefit party at The Atrium at 75 Sylvan St. in Danvers, where Hospice of the North Shore & Greater Boston’s headquarters are located. Kim Carrigan will emcee the event, which runs from 5:30-7:30 p.m. There will be a live and silent auction, food from Henry’s Market, which operates Wenham Tea House too, and ice cream from Treadwell’s. Tickets are $40.
3. Chicken: The summer, each Thursday has been Crispy Chicken and Waffle Thursday at Wenham Tea House. This week marks the final all-you-can eat dinner of the summer, with a menu of ried chicken, bacon and herb waffles with chipotle maple syrup, horseradish cole slaw and homemade cornbread for $18.50 per person.
4. Lullaby: Cape Ann Waldorf School, just over the Wenham town line at Moraine Farm in North Beverly, is hosting a lullaby concert on Thursday evening at its school. It runs from 7-8 p.m. and space is limited so the school asks that audience members call ahead to reserve a spot for their family.
5. Sales Tax: The new state tax of computer and software sales has prompted a lot of confusion and anger. Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr, a Republican from Gloucester who represents Hamilton and Wenham, will sit down on Thursday morning at the North Shore Chamber of Commerce’s office in Cherry Hill office park in Danvers for a “task force meeting.” The meeting is designed to discuss the new tax and a petition to repeal it.
