It is Friday, Aug. 30. Here are five things you need to know
in Hamilton and Wenham:
1. Warmer: The temperature on Friday will get back up to normal, with the possibility of fog and clouds to start the day with a high temperature around 80. The chance of sun will increase as the day goes along.
2. Labor Day: Monday is Labor Day, a federal holiday that means government offices and some businesses are closed. There is no school on Monday and also on Friday to make it a four day weekend for students.
3. Library: Hamilton-Wenham Library will be closed on Saturday for the Labor Day weekend, in addition to the Monday holiday.
4. Slots: The deadline originally set for the state Gaming Commission to hand out the state’s only slots parlor license was this weekend. At one time, a developer had eyed a spot at Liberty Tree Mall in Danvers but it now looks like all the proposals are quite a distance from Hamilton and Wenham. It also looks as though the license may not be ready to be issued in the next few days.
5. Police Academy: Friday is the final day to sign up for the upcoming Hamilton Police Citizens Academy, which will get started later this fall. Applications can be found online on the Hamilton police website or at the police station.
