A quick reminder of what’s happening around town this weekend.

If you want to get some holiday shopping out of the way, head downtown tomorrow. Special sales at the Community House and Senior Center are in convenient walking distance of each other.

You can support programming for town seniors at the Autumn Fair. And Holiday Gifts on the Common features local artisans, including some who call Southborough their home town.
