I’m signing off for a Thanksgiving break. I’ve scheduled my my annual Shop Local reminder to pop up on Friday with an updated list of Southborough businesses. (I’ve already updated the directory page. You can see that here.)

In the meantime, here’s a reminder of what’s happening and what’s closed over the next few days.

Town Hours for the holiday

  • Closed early today (Wednesday) and staying closed through the entire weekend:
    • Southborough public schools
    • Southborough Senior Center
    • Town House and other Town Departments
  • Southborough Library – Regular hours today (Wednesday through 9:00 pm). Closed Thursday through the entire weekend.
  • Transfer Station – Regular hours today. Closed Thursday and Friday. Reopens on Saturday.

Event Highlights

Thursday, November 25

  • Gobble Wobble (7:30 am) @ Trottier Middle School, 49 Parkerville Road: The annual 5K run and 2 mile walk fundraiser for Friends of Southborough Recreation takes off at 8:30 am. For more details, see dedicated post.
  • ARHS Football  (10:00 am) @ Westborough High School: The annual Thanksgiving Day rivalry matchup is an away game for Algonquin this year. It’s the last game of the season, and the first time the schools have faced each other this year. I’d expect Gonk to win the Mewhiney-Walsh Trophy for the third straight year. (They go in with a 7-3 record vs the Rangers 1-9 season.)

Friday, November 26, 2021

  • Green Friday Hike (10:00 am) @ Chestnut Hill Farm: Join us the day after Thanksgiving for a hike led by a Trustees ranger and naturalist to learn how different types of plants and animals cope with the universal changes the land undergoes as the seasons evolve. The campfire will be going and there will be hot cocoa and s’mores. Pre-registration (and fee) required. For details, see dedicated post.
  • Southborough Firefighters Association Tree Sale (5:00 – 9:00 pm) @ behind the Public Safety Building: The annual christmas tree sale. For details, see dedicated post.

Saturday, November 27 – Sunday, November 28, 2021

  • Southborough Firefighters Association Tree Sale (5:00 – 9:00 pm) @ behind the Public Safety Building: The annual christmas tree sale. For details, see dedicated post.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
