Lunar New Year begins today. It’s the Year of the Rabbit, which, according to this article, means “We Can All Chill.” Thank goodness.
As you can probably tell, I’ve had a hard time getting myself going this weekend. What I did do is finish summarizing all the Warrant articles for Monday’s Town Meeting. What I didn’t do is much of anything else. We’ll hopefully be back to our regularly scheduled programming tomorrow!

Sports and Activities
Boys and Girls both lost in basketball against Wakefield on Friday. Our Varsity Boys’ hockey team lost against Wakefield yesterday, too, with a score of 3-1.
Our boys wrestled at the Colter Abely Wrestling Tournament yesterday, and I’ll share some highlights when I have them. Lady Devils Hockey were up 2-1 in Wakefield last I heard, but I haven’t heard a final score yet.
JV Boys play hockey in Waltham tonight at 8:00.
That’s all for today. I’ll see you tomorrow. Stay warm and healthy!
Also on Wednesday is the monthly community dinner hosted by the Presbyterian Church In Burlington. That will run from 5:30 to 7:00 and is open to all. It is an opportunity to gather with friends and meet neighbors! You will hopefully get a flyer for it.
