Welcome to 5 Things, your daily resource for the events and happenings in town. Here are five things you need to know today, Tuesday Nov. 15, in Danvers:
1. Two days ago the town cut down the Christmas Tree which is to be placed in the Danvers Square. Donated by Jan Farrin of 14 Brookwood Lane, the tree was planted by her uncle as a seedling and she is estimating the tree to be approximately 45 years old. We can't wait to see it at the 13th Annual Danvers Holiday Festival!
2. Interested in a night of comedy and networking? Tonight the North Shore Tech Council is hosting Connections and Comedy - A night of networking and nonsense. The $50 ticket can be bought at the door.
3. The Danvers Transfer Station will be closed from Friday, Nov. 18 through Sunday, November 20 (weather permitting) for the installation of a new scale. The Transfer Station is tentatively scheduled to reopen on Monday, Nov. 21.
