It is Monday, Oct. 20. Here are five things you need to know
in Hamilton and Wenham:
1. Sun: Monday is shaping up to be a beautiful sunny fall day. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high temperature in the mid-60s and a light west wind.
2. Vision: The process to develop a Master Plan for the Hamilton-Wenham Regional School District continues on Monday night with a “visioning session” for 40 selected members of the community. The Master Plan Steering Committee and architectural firm of Symmes, Maini and McKee Associates will work to come up with a plan for the program development and facilities needs of the district for the next 20 years.
3. Hunting: Don’t forget that the archery deer hunting season opens on Monday, officially kicking off a half-hour before sunrise. If you are a hiker or otherwise use the woods recreationally, do not forget to wear blaze orange when you’re out there. The season runs through Nov. 30, when the shotgun season starts two days later.
4. Teen Driving: This week is National Teen Driver Safety Week, which includes the “Watch Out Loud” Teen Video Contest on Facebook that encourages teenagers to create a video discouraging distracted driving. The contest is open to local students and is being run by California-based I Drive Safely LLC, a company that runs online defensive driver training.
5. Selectmen: The Hamilton Board of Selectmen meet on Monday night at Hamilton Town Hall in the Memorial Room on the first floor at 7 p.m. The board is scheduled to hold a public hearing on the Special Town Meeting warrant for the meeting scheduled for 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 4 at 7 p.m. at Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School. The board will also get updates on the Patton Homestead Committee and the Hamilton Development Corp. from Chairman Brian Stein.
