Tuesday, Nov. 10

School Committee meeting: The School Committee meets virtually at 7 p.m. On the agenda, recognitions of Chairwoman Carolyn Mark and committee members Matt Plain and Jeff Dronzek, who are stepping off the committee as soon as the three new committee members are sworn in later this month (date tbd). They will also be getting COVID-19-related updates. The full agenda and a link to the meeting can be found HERE.

Wednesday, Nov. 11

Veterans Day Parade: Happily, the parade must go on! After having to cancel Memorial Day Parade in May, the town is able to hold the Veterans Day Parade amid the pandemic (cue social distancing and masks). The parade steps off from Academy Field at 10 a.m. and proceeds along the usual route – Spring Street to Mawney Street to First Avenue to Main Street. The big difference? No closing ceremonies. Find out more HERE.

Town of EG Blood Drive: It is safe to donate blood – and your blood is needed!

Make an appointment (highly recommended!) by clicking HERE (use sponsor code 0474). Walk-ins only accepted if safe spacing can be maintained.
