5 Things: Moving Wall Memorialized; Mosquitoes Meet Maker
A beautiful event is commemorated with a beautiful book. Also, the mosquito version of "Ghost-busters" is in town.
Our weekday morning column, 5 Things You Need to Know, provides you with information that can help you plan your day and give you some fodder for water cooler conversations.
1. To commemorate the visit of The Moving Wall (TM) to Natick last June, the Morse Institute Library and the Natick Veterans Oral History Project, funded by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, have created a color booklet remembering the event with photos, quotes and acknowledgements. The booklets are available for purchase at the Morse Institute Library during open hours and at selected venues around town for a cost of $20. All proceeds will go directly to benefit local veterans through the Natick Veterans Services Office. For more information, contact Jane Finlay at email@example.com or 508-647-6526.
2. The Central Massachusetts Mosquito Control Project will be in town throughout the month investigating residents' complaints about blood-sucking leeches. (I'm just kidding. They'll be investigating mosquito complaints. I just wanted to see if you were reading.) The Board of Health announced yesterday on the town's website that the results of the project's investigations may "warrant the use of a mosquito insecticide to defined site-specific areas of the town." For more information, see the release.
4. Unfortunately, many of us have had or will have experience with Alzheimer's Disease. Fortunately, we're not alone. An Alzheimer's support group meeting, free and open to the public, will be held today at 10:30 a.m. at Whitney Place Assisted Living Residences.
