1. Rain: Monday is forecasted to be a rainy day, with on and off showers under clouds and fog with temperatures in the 40s.
2. Meats and Cleats: All the donations from the weekend food collection event “Meats and Cleats” run by Danvers Youth Soccer will be donated to Danvers Food Pantry today. The soccer club collected food at both games at the Topsfield Arena and Danvers Indoor Sports Center rover the weekend.
