- More clouds: Yesterday’s clouds are still with us today, according to the National Weather Service. The NWS is forecasting a chance of showers after 11 a.m. and clouds all day. If you’ll be heading out after 6 p.m., chances are you may hit some rain then too. Temperatures will be in high 50s today.
- Senior concert: Diane Dexter, a pianist-vocalist, will perform international songs for seniors at the Brightview Country Club Heights on Rehabilitation Way. Dexter will perform in many different languages and attendees are asked to sing along. The event is from 2 to 3 p.m. and is free.
- Relay for Life: The local Relay for Life Planning Committee will meet tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the Senior Center to continue planning for this year’s event. Volunteers are welcome!
- In case you missed it: Over the weekend, we profiled the fantastic Jenna Jankowski, a Woburnite who is hoping to start a local chapter of the Neighborhood Brigade. The organization helps neighbors in need with transportation, meals and other helpful activities. To read more about it and learn how to help, click here.
- Political prison to president: On this day in 1994, Nelson Mandela was sworn in as South Africa's first black president and served in that position until 1999. Nelson had spent 27 years in prison (1962 - 1990) after being charged with sabotage for participating in anti-apartheid activism.
