Daily Buzz | Waste Collection Delayed, No School Thursday
Also, Town Meeting article summaries will be posted shortly
Good Morning, Burlington!
I hope you had a nice weekend, and that you made the most out of your extra day, if you had one. I spent the day alternating between work mode, play mode, and relaxation mode, and it wasn’t a bad way to spend a Monday that felt like a Sunday.
So here we are on a Tuesday that feels like a Monday, and there are just a few things to note as we start out the work week:
Trash collection is delayed by a day this week because of the holiday.
There is no school in BPS Thursday, January 19, due to a district-wide professional development day.
Sunday, January 22, is the start of the Lunar New Year, a holiday that is celebrated throughout East and Southeast Asia. There will be a Lunar New Year Crafts session at 4PM on Thursday at the library for grades PreK-3. Register at the link! Learn more about this prosperous holiday here, and if you know of any local events happening for Lunar New Year, please let me know!
I’ll be summarizing the Town Meeting Warrant Articles here in the next couple of days. Right now there’s just a structure, but as I get time I’ll start filling in all the different things Town Meeting will be discussing and voting on. I’ll let you know when it’s done!
