Today is Monday, Sept. 17. Here are five things you need to know:
1. Dry: Monday will be a dry day, so enjoy it before a soaking storm moves in late Tuesday and is expected to last into Wednesday. The temperature on Monday will get into the 70s.
2. Sound of Music: Adult auditions for the Community House’s upcoming performance of the Sound of Music will be held on Monday and Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m. Performances of the show are scheduled for March 1-3 and 8-10, 2013.
3. Rosh Hashanah: Sundown on Sunday night marked the start of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year. The celebration of year 5773 runs through nightfall on Tuesday. Rosh Hashanah, which literally means “head of the year,” signals the beginning of the High Holy Days. Yom Kippur, or Day of Atonement, marks the end, and together they are two of the holiest days for Jews.
4. Constitution Day: Monday is Constitution Day, marking the final meeting of the Constitutional Convention in 1787.
5. Hamilton Selectmen: The Hamilton Board of Selectmen meet on Monday at Hamilton Town Hall at 7 p.m., with the annual review of Town Manager Michael Lombardo on the agenda for discussion.
