5 Things To Know on Oct. 19: A Breakfast of Champions
A great way to start the day with a quick look at the events and happenings in town.
Welcome to “5 Things,” your daily resource for community events, happenings in town and other little tidbits of information. Here are five things you need to know on Friday, Oct. 19.
1. Champions: Kelly Delaney, owner of Cakes for Occasions, is speaking in front of the Lynn Area Chamber of Commerce on Friday morning at Spinelli’s in Peabody where she’s one of the keynote speakers at a “Breakfast with Champions: Evolution of an Entrepreneur” event. She’ll talk about everything ranging from delegating to creating a positive team environment.
2. Containers: If you’ve been by the North Shore Mall in recent weeks, you have probably seen the enormous building going up in the parking lot. It’s the newest location for The Container Store, a nationwide chain that is holding a grand opening this weekend for its new local store. And 10 percent of all the sales during the opening weekend go toward the Children’s Museum in Boston.
3. Wellness: Friday is Health and Wellness Day at the Great Oak Elementay School, where Principal Matt Fusco says students will be combining several academic topics to learn about being healthy and making healthy choices. At the end of the day the whole school is going to be active with “all sorts of cool activities.” The event marks the start of what will be a regular monthly event at the school.
4. Charles River: One of the truly unique events in our region each fall is the Head of the Charles Regatta. While it’s not local – it happens down on the Charles River between Boston and Cambridge – it’s a sport that many of us otherwise don’t get to see in person. While tickets are needed to watch in certain areas, most of the races can be seen for free on both sides of the river and on the bridges both Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
5. Electronics: Do you have old computers, bicycles, air conditioners and other “stuff” piling up in your garage, basement or attic? It’s your chance on Saturday to get rid of it. There’s an electronics recycling event at the First Church of Danvers from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Everything from computers to lawn mowers will be collected with fees ranging from free to $25, depending on the item.
