Here are highlights of what’s happening around town this week.

Two events  may inspire some fall cleaning, since you can now get rid of unwanted items – hazardous waste, white goods and equipment. Seniors, while you are going through your junk – don’t throw out your old beaded jewelry. A jewelry class this week offers you the chance to refashion those beads.

For more details and the full list, check the Event Calendar.

Beth, thanks for including Friday’s Jewelry Class for Seniors at Colonial Gardens on your calendar of events. I wanted readers to know that pre-registration is required for Jewelry class, as well as the Polymer Clay classes. Seniors can register by visiting or calling the Senior Center at 508.229.4453. We ask you to register at least two days in advance so that the instructor (me) can plan accordingly. Thanks.
