It is Monday, Oct. 28. Here are five things you need to know in Hamilton and Wenham:
1. Sun: We should expect to see quite a bit of sun in the sky on Monday, with the forecast calling for temperatures in the mid to upper-50s. The wind will also be around, blowing out of the southwest at 8-16 miles per hour.
2. Sandy: It was one year ago on Monday that we were getting ready for the arrival of “Superstorm Sandy.” While the damage to New York and New Jersey was nearly unfathomable, life here in Hamilton and Wenham was impacted, mostly by downed trees and power outages. The lengthy power outages and downed wires did, though, result in the postponement of trick-or-treating.
3. CSA: Fall shares begin to be handed out this week at Green Meadows Farms' CSA. The shares run eight weeks and include “extra large distributions for Thanksgiving and Christmas,” according to the farm. Shares include kale, lettuce, beets, asian greens, spinach, arugula, microgreens, potatoes, celeriac, kohlrabi, rutabaga, cabbage, carrots, brussels sprouts, broccoli, sweet potatoes, and winter squash all grown at Green Meadows plus potatoes and winter squash from “another regional farm.” The cost for the fall share is $325.
4. Breakfast: SeniorCare is a Gloucester-based non-profit organization that helps the senior citizens of Hamilton and Wenham with everything from money management programs to Meals on Wheels deliveries. It will be holding a fundraising breakfast on Tuesday morning at Lobsta Land in Gloucester. It runs from 6:30-11 a.m. and is $10 per person at the door, with a choice of pancakes, French toast, eggs or a fruit plate. Lobsta Land is on Causeway Street, just off exit 12 from Route 128.
5. Recreation: The Hamilton-Wenham Recreation Commission meets on Monday night when it is slated to discuss the pool at Patton Park. The committee meets at 6:30 p.m. in the recreation center, next to Hamilton-Wenham Library on Union Street.
