5 Things You Need To Know Today, Nov. 17

Your daily guide to the events and happenings in Danvers.

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.

4. Town meetings tonight: The Rail Trail Advisory Committee meets at 6 p.m. at Town Hall, the Recreation Committee Meeting is at 7 p.m. at the Senior Center, and the Diversity Committee meets at 7 p.m. at Town Hall. 

5. Today's weather: A chance of showers, mainly after 11 a.m. Otherwise cloudy, with a high near 50 degrees.

Have things changed with the transfer station and recycling since we received a mailing? Some of my neighbors are confused as well. People work and not everyone hires someone to cut their lawn, how are they supposed to get their clippings there on a Friday? They need to be open on the weekend, this isn't right.

Hey Pat, the station will be closed this weekend. There is curbside yard waste on your recycling day until Nov. 26, though.

Just saw that this years Christmas tree was donated by Jan Farrin. Thanks for letting us know! My kids always ask me where the tree is from every year; how amazing it must be for the Farrin's to see their family tree decked out for all to see!
