“Five Things You Need to Know Today” is a Patch column that provides readers with essential, daily information at a glance.
1. Rain possible: Showers are likely, mainly before noon, with patchy fog between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., according to the National Weather Service. The rest of the day will be cloudy, gradually clearing, with a high around 46 degrees. The evening will be mostly clear with a low around 27.
2. Friday Flick: Drop by the Stephen Palmer Senior Center at 1 p.m. for a free showing of “Midnight in Paris.”
3. On stage: Students from St. Sebastian’s School will perform “Writer’s Block,” an original play written by St. Sebastian’s senior Mark Lane, tonight at 7 p.m. in the school’s Ward Hall. A $2 donation is recommended. The evening will also include a performance of the Marx Brothers feature “Mixed Nuts.” A second showing will be held on Saturday at 7 p.m.
4. Get thrifty: Needham Community Council thrift shop at 51 Lincoln St. is open on Fridays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Get special deals on “new to you” clothing and small household items during the shop’s huge pre-move sale, which ends today. The thrift shop will close at the end of the day and is expected to reopen at the new location at 570 Hillside Ave. on Feb. 29. For information, call 781-444-2415.
5. Talk shop: Needham Patch is looking for bloggers to write about a variety of topics, from politics to entertainment to local issues, hobbies and know-how. Got something to say about the presidential election or the race for Fourth Congressional District? Love to talk about cycling, running, cooking or crafts? Have a weekly sermon or inspirational piece you’d like to share? Or just want to document life with photos? There’s room for you on Needham Patch. Write as much and as often as you like.
