Daily Buzz | Bring Clothing Donations to Girls' Soccer Senior Night
Warm weather gear as well as fuzzy socks and blankets are welcome!
Good Morning, Burlington!
When I was visiting my family in Missouri a few weeks ago, one of my favorite things to do was sit on the deck and watch the bird feeders. Not exactly rural and not exactly urban, the Ozarks remind me a little of Burlington with pockets of nature all around. There must have been ten different types of birds out there of all different colors, patterns, and sizes.
Massachusetts has some different birds than Missouri, but the principles of bird feeding are the same, and you can learn all about them at this Wednesday’s event, sponsored by the Burlington Garden Club. From co-President, Karin Oakes:
Backyard bird feeding is a wonderful way to attract birds to your property, feel connected to nature, and get to know the characteristics and behaviors of common birds.
Scott Santino of the Mass Audubon Society will discuss different feeder types, the best seed to use, the birds they’ll attract, how to outsmart squirrels, and other ways to encourage bird life into your yard and community.
Bring your questions and join us for this informative program.
Visit the Burlington Garden Club website for more about our organization and upcoming garden club events or join the Burlington Garden Club Facebook page. If you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org
The event will take place in the Murray-Kelly room at 61 Center Street at 7:00 PM on Wednesday. Hope you can make it!
Today in Burlington
Meetings and Events
Early voting continues today, but the big event on the agenda is this evening’s meeting of the Select Board, during which Mass Highway will present their plan for the repaving and restriping of Route 3A/Cambridge Street. If you’re curious about the state’s vision for the corridor, I encourage you to listen in. As a reminder, input and questions will be welcomed at the 11/17 public forum. They’ll also be discussion trash collection, a conversation postponed from last month.
12:00-4:00 PM - Early In-Person Voting - at Town Hall
6:00 PM - Select Board to hear from Mass Highway as mentioned above; they’ll also discuss the trash contract renewal, which has been another topic where residents have had a lot of feedback and opinions. Sidewalk Program and Town Common Policy are also on the agenda; I don’t see supporting documentation with the agenda for us to review ahead of time, though. (Join online)
7:00 PM - Burlington Public Library’s Virtual Trivia Night. Registration required. Sounds fun!
