Five Things You Need to Know Today: May 2
Five things for Brookline, May 2.
1. Slight chance of drizzles for most of the day, The National Weather Service expects it to dry up toward 1 p.m. Otherwise, it will be a mostly cloudy day and evening. The high should hit 56ºF and a low around 46ºF.
2. We heard last night that Patch Columnist Shanna Giora-Gorfajn lead a successful write-in campaign for Town Meeting Member, and that fellow columnist Michael Burstein was re-elected. At the time of writing, the results were not yet posted on the Town Clerk's page, but we will have full results when they are available.
3. The Mass. Department of Transportation has named today "Massachusetts Walk and Bike to School Day." As the name suggests, students are encouraged to skip the car ride or bus, and head to school on foot or by bike. If you want to participate, remember that walking or biking may be healthier and greener, but are a little slower than four-wheeled transit--leave early and plan ahead.
4. Speaking of students, those already thinking about colleges may want to get a boost on their SAT preparation with a Free PSAT Practice Test at the Brookline High School, this afternoon. The test is expected to run from 2:45 p.m. to 5:45 p.m., so bring a number 2 pencil and some snacks.
5. Ever wondered where the water comes from? Well, Guest Lecturer JR Greene knows a bit about 'The Making Of The Quabbin Reservoir,' which happens to be the title of a lecture he's giving at 7 p.m. tonight, at the Metropolitan Waterworks Museum. Entry is $5.00
