It is Monday, Sept. 2. Here are five things you need to know
in Hamilton and Wenham:
1. Storms: A chance of strong showers and thunderstorms will exist throughout the day on Monday, and if those showers hit it could cause flooding. Otherwise, the sun should be peeking through on Monday as the humidity remains high with temperatures in upper 70s.
2. Coffee: If you will be on the road Monday night, “service areas” across the state will be offering free coffee. The free coffee will be available at the rest area on Route 128 in Beverly, but also the service plaza all up and down the Mass Pike plus other areas of the state.
3. Trails and Sails: Two weekends of activities are coming up later this month to showcase the wonders of Essex County as part of a program known as Trails and Sails. Starting Monday, you can start to find printed programs of the activities available at select locations on the North Shore, or you can always check the website to see what’s planned.
4. Labor Day: Monday is a federal holiday – Labor Day. That means there is no trash pickup, no mail delivery and government offices and some businesses are closed.
5. Sand: A sand artist shows up this week at Pingree School in Hamilton as part of its Flying Horse Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit. Justin Gordon of Groveland will be creating a sand sculpture of three students through Sept. 7 and the public is invited to stop by and watch him work.
