Welcome to “5 Things,” your daily source for community events, happenings in town and other little tidbits of information. Here are five things you need to know on Tuesday, March 26.
- Lynch in Danvers: Democratic Congressman and U.S. Senate hopeful Stephen Lynch stopped by the Danversport Yacht Club on Saturday for the 5th Annual Firefighters MDA Cooking for a Cure fundraiser. And meanwhile over in Peabody on Monday, Republican candidate Gabriel Gomez stopped by Brooksby Village to chat with voters.
- Passover: Monday marked the start of Passover, when Jews across the world come together to retell the Exodus story over four cups of wine (or grape juice for those who can't indulge), and a large, festive feast known as a Seder on the first two nights. It is a seven to eight days long celebration of the ancient Israelites' exodus from Egypt and slavery.
- Easter: And this week is also Holy Week in the Christian tradition, reflecting on the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Many local churches celebrate Maundy Thursday with a potluck meal and hold services for Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
- Tobin: Preparations began on Monday to put in place equipment on the Tobin Bridge that could cause delays all summer long with lane closures. A repair project will run through the fall and that work will close lanes and likely cause delays.
- Danvers High sports schedule: You can check out the Danvers High spring sports schedule here, but bear in mind games, dates, places and times are subject to change.
