Today is Monday, Dec. 17. Here are five things you need to know in Hamilton and Wenham:
1. Rain: Monday is forecasted to be a rainy day, with on and off showers under clouds and fog with temperatures in the 40s.
2. Concert: The elementary school concert is Monday night at Buker Elementary School. It will be held at in gymnasium and starts at 6:30 p.m.
3. Meteors: The best meteor show of the year wraps up on Monday night. The Geminid Meteor Shower has been occurring since last week and peaked on Thursday night. With the forecast, it looks like we may miss out of seeing any meteors before the end of the shower, but if the sky clears there will be one last chance on Monday night to see the show in the sky.
4. Principal: Applications are due on Monday for anyone who hopes to become the next principal at Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School. Last week, Superintendent Michael Harvey said more than 30 applications had already been received. After the deadline, an advisory committee will start to narrow down the field of candidates, heading toward an expected hiring by Harvey in early February.
5. Hamilton Selectmen: The Hamilton Board of Selectmen meet on Monday night at 7 p.m. at Hamilton Town Hall with an agenda that is full to the brim. The board will take a look at the town and school budgets that are both being developed, renew entertainment and used car licenses for 2013 and discuss a “disposition” for the dispatch center and regional dispatch.
