Today is Monday, June 24. Here are five things you need to know in Hamilton and Wenham:
1. Hot: Monday could be day two of a heat wave. The forecast calls for the temperature into the upper 80s and close to 90, with a threat of a shower or thunderstorm all day. The sky will be mostly sunny with a light west wind.
2. Ballots: Monday is the last day to request an absentee ballot for Tuesday’s special election for U.S. Senate. Voters will choose a new junior senator from Massachusetts. If you cannot make it to the polls on Tuesday, you have up until noon on Monday to get to the Town Clerk’s office at either Hamilton Town Hall or Wenham and request an absentee ballot.
3. Reading: Registration opens Monday for the summer reading programs at Hamilton-Wenham Library. That’s when students can get their summer reading log, timesheet and a schedule of all the summer events. Registration also opens Monday for the weekly story programs including Baby Bookworms, Music & Movement and Rhythm & Rhyme.
4. Movies: If you’re looking to catch some recent movie hits on the big screen and help a good cause, there’s a great series of showing coming up at the largest movie theater in the area. It starts on Monday night and runs Monday through Wednesday evenings through the end of the summer. AMC Loews movie theaters, including the theater at Liberty Tree Mall, are showing movies for $3 at 10 p.m. This week it starts with “The Dark Night Rises” and later includes films such as “Spider Man” and “The Hunger Games.”
5. Camp: The Wenham Tea House camp marks its opening day on Monday, with a summer full of activities planned. The Wenham Village Improvement Society has put the camp on every summer since 1935.
