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 Wednesday, Sept. 26.
1. No School: There is no school for public school students in Danvers on Wednesday because it is a professional development day for teachers and staff. School resumes on the regular schedule for Thursday.
2. Wild Wings: If you eat at Buffalo Wild Wings at the Liberty Tree Mall on Wednesday, 20 percent of your bill will go toward Cub Scouts Pack 155. Just make sure you tell your server you are there for the fundraiser or use the form attached to the event listing here on Patch.
3. Topsfield Fair: Wednesday is the last day to buy discount tickets for the 2012 Topsfield Fair, which starts on Friday. In Danvers, discount tickets are available at Cherry Farm Creamery, Gibney Gardens and The Butchery. The tickets, which are $9 each, save you $2 on weekdays and $6 on weekends and Columbus Day.
4. Guerrilla Marketing: Companies these days are looking for the best way to use their marketing dollars to get out the word. On Wednesday morning from 8-10 a.m., a group of local businesspeople will gather at Danversport Yacht Club for a Guerrilla Marketing Seminar that will give participants “easy and inexpensive techniques” to attract customers.
5. Yom Kippur: Wednesday is Yom Kippur, the Jewish holiday that marks the end of the annual High Holy Day period. It is the holiest day of the year for Jews and is referred to as the “Day of Atonement.”
