Five Things You Need To Know Today, June 18
More lovely weather today.
Here are five things you need to know today:
1) Stay the same: Look for the weather pattern from the weekend to stay the same. The National Weather Service says we'll have a high temperature of 72 with partly cloudy skies. Expect higher temps later in the week!
2) F U N – That’s 6 points: Scrabble Club at the Woburn Public Library, 45 Pleasant St., starts at 3:30 pm today. Students in grades 4 through 8 play against each other and can choose to enter a tournament. Some players may even be chosen to compete in the National Scrabble Tournament.
3) Event Spotlight: Schedule your Reiki today. Receive a full hour of Reiki to balance, rejuvenate and heal yourself economically. Sessions on Mondays are at 6 and 7:15 p.m.
4) In Case You Missed It: Do you know what the city’s budget is for next year? We boiled the budget down to five important takeaways on Friday. Read our report here.
5) Ride, Sally, Ride: Ok, so the real song was Captain, but on this day in 1983, Dr. Sally Ride, became the first American woman in space. Dr. Ride, an astrophysicist from Stanford, was a mission specialist who operated the shuttle’s robotic arm which she had helped design. Women were restricted from participating in the astronaut program until 1978 when NASA changed its policy. Six women were chosen out of 3,000 applicants and approved to become astronauts in the NASA program.
