Five Things You Need to Know Today: Jan. 2
Youth Commission meets, a special program at the Senior Center and school is back in session.
1. School is back in session. That's right, Newton Public School students head back to the classroom today.
2. "Widow in White" at the Newton Senior Center. Robert Trifiletti, director of the Italian Center of New York, Boston Office, "combines the story of a former Hollywood star-turned nun, a trip to the Oscars, and immigration to the United States into a heartfelt presentation that examines love, loss, and forgiveness." The presentation will take place at 1 p.m. at the Newton Senior Center.
3. Youth Commission. The Newton Youth Commission will meet tonight at 7 p.m. in the cafeteria at Newton City Hall.
4. Teen "crafternoons." The teen section of the Newton Free Library hosts "crafternoons" on the first and third Wednesday of the month from 3:30 p.m. - 5 p.m. Kids grades 6-12 are welcome to stop in, hang out and get crafty.
Correction: The teen "crafternoons" are held on the first and third Wednesday of the month, not every Wednesday.
