I have more news that I’d love to share. But I just don’t have the time. The holidays are calling.

But before I sign off for a break, I wanted to take a moment to wish you all a happy holiday season. And a Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate it.

Thank you for your support of My Southborough over the year.

I won’t be posting as regularly as usual over the school break, but I will be back with a post or two on Wednesday.

In the meantime, here is what’s happening this week:

  • Christmas religious services in town, click here.
  • When Town facilities are opened and closed, click here.
  • Events/What there is to do in town this week:
    • Basketball Clinic – Wednesday, December 26 (11:00 am – 2:00 pm) @ Algonquin Regional High School gym: I don’t know if it’s too late to sign up – but a clinic is being held for Grades 1-8, run by ARHS Basketball coaches and players. Click here for details.
    • St. Mark’s Free Skate – Wednesday, December 26 – Saturday, December 29 @ St. Mark’s School: There are several opportunities for both free skate and “sticks & pucks”. Click here for the schedule and details.
    • Pajama Storytime – Wednesday, December 26 (6:30 pm) @ Southborough Library, upstairs: Children can wear their pajamas and enjoy refreshments while listening to some great stories.

  • Algonquin’s Sports schedule, click here.
  • Government meetings – as of early this morning (when I wrote this post), only one was scheduled – a Board of Selectmen Thursday morning meeting to approve and release Executive Session minutes on their discussion about Fire Chief applicants. (More meetings could be posted for later this week. Check the Town calendar here for updates.)
  • An open thread – to see recent comments or keep chatting with other readers – click here

Updated (12/25/18 8:45 am): I just saw that I had the PJ storytime listed downstairs. It has been in past years, but the downstairs is still closed off for flood repairs.

Hi Beth,

Merry Christmas! Wondering where you can get one of those Southborough ornaments in the picture?

Isn’t it great? I seem to get that question every year. It’s a picture that Susan Fitzgerald took years ago.

I believe it was sold in years past by the Historical Society. I don’t even have one (and would love one).

I just confirmed that the pic was originally from a 2011 post that touted Southborough themed gifts being sold at the Southborough Historical Museum for the holidays.
