Five Things You Need to Know Today: Feb. 10
Many concerts and events have been canceled but the JCC is open and hosting a family wellness expo.
1. Family Wellness Expo. The Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center will host a family wellness expo today from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The expo will include healthy food cooking demonstrations, MYCHIP child identification kits, composting tips, free chair massages and healthy snacks. Olympic swimmer Lenny Krayzelburg will also sign autographs and speak about the benefits of learning to swim at a young age. The event is free and open to the public. Call 617-558-6459 for more information.
2. Snow emergency lifted. In case you missed it, the snow emergency was lifted in Newton last night. This means you can once again park on streets and in municipal lots.
3. Add your snow photos! Do you have photos from the blizzard? Share them with Patch and your neighbors by adding them to our Newton blizzard photo gallery. (Please & thank you!)
4. Library open, but concert canceled. The Newton Free Library will reopen today (1 p.m. - 5 p.m.), but the NE Spiritual Ensemble concert has been canceled. The Zamir Chorale concert at Temple Shalom and Boston Cello Quartet concert at the All Newton Music School have also been rescheduled.
5. Mayor's town hall meetings canceled. Mayor Setti Warren was initially scheduled to hold two town hall meetings today on the override (at Ward Elementary and Oak Hill Middle). However, due to the blizzard, those meetings have been canceled.
