5 Things To Know on Sept. 28: More Free Coffee
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, Sept. 28.
1. Gas: After weeks of rising gas prices, the American Automobile Association said in the past week that prices actually dropped. In recent days, though, we have seen the price tick back up again. And here in Danvers, the lowest price right now is $3.71 per gallon at Costco, where you have to be a member. The next lowest is $3.75 at Gulf on Route 1 at the intersection with North Street.
2. Coffee: Friday is National Coffee Day. All week, McDonalds has been giving out free small coffees. On Friday, 7-Eleven jumps in to the mix from 6-10 a.m. While there is no 7-Eleven store in Danvers, there’s one not far over the town line in Beverly on Elliott Street plus one on Route 1 North in Peabody and on Lake Street in West Peabody. There’s about 12 locations in our immediate area.
3. Events: Our weekly “Get Out” weekend events guide will be posted here on Danvers Patch later this morning, and the No. 1 way we get events to include is from the events calendar on Patch. And most of those events come direct from our readers. Anyone can add a local event quickly, easily and for free on our “add an event” page.
4. Good Neighbors: Are you a good neighbor? Or do you have good neighbors? If so, Friday in the day to celebrate. The concept of National Good Neighbor Day began in the early 1970s when Montana resident Becky Mattson pushed to create a holiday that would recognize people who make their neighborhoods a great place to live. The annual event became a National Holiday in 2003 when U.S. Sen. Max Baucus sponsored a U. S. resolution naming Sept. 28 National Good Neighbor Day.
5. Tyrrell: The life of Frank Tyrell at celebrated on Friday at Holy Trinity United Methodist Church starting at 11:30 a.m. Tyrrell served the town of Danvers for about 70 years, as a Town Meeting member, School Committee member and on the North Shore Technical High School Committee. He remained a Town Meeting member and on the Board of Library Trustees up to death earlier this month. He was a lifetime member of the Republican Town Committee and in 2005 was inducted into the DEEP Hall of Honor as a “Friend of the Danvers Public Schools.”
