Above: The big event of the week is Special Town Meeting tomorrow night. Rotary is also hoping a Food Truck Festival will be a big draw the following night. (photo cropped from SAM video of Annual Town Meeting)

Entertainment wise, it’s a fairly quiet week in Southborough leading up to Memorial Day.
