"Five Things You Need to Know Today" is a Patch column that provides readers with essential, daily information at a glance. Check back later for more, and let us know what you think of the new feature in the comments section.
1. Town Meeting begins in just 33 days. Warrants have been mailed to all households, and you can also see a pdf version on the town website by clicking here.
2. The English At Large Conversation Group meets this morning at Cary Memorial Library from 10 a.m. to noon. It’s an informal conversation group for non-native English speakers and is open to all. (Es un grupo de conversación informal de los oradores Inglés no nativos y está abierto a todos.) (Dit is 'n informele gesprek groep vir nie-Engels as moedertaal en is oop vir almal.)
3. If you’ve seen a screening of the documentary “Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North,” now’s your chance to join a discussion on the film. Tonight, CommUNITY, the Lexington Interfaith Clergy Association and Hancock Church will host a group discussion on the film from 7 to 9 p.m. at Hancock Church.
4. Tonight’s home finale for the Lexington High School boys’ hockey team is more than a chance to beat Belmont. The team has made tonight a “Stroke Awareness Game,” and will donate proceeds from ticket sales, raffles and concessions to the American Heart Association. The game is at the Hayden ice rink at 7:30 p.m.
5. Lexington Community Education is holding an “Introduction to Twitter” class tonight at Cary Memorial Library. Pre-registration is required, and more information can be found at LCE’s website. Don’t forget to follow @LexingtonPatch on Twitter, once you know what that means.
