Editor's Picks: 5 Things To Do Today March 9 Editor's Picks: 5 Things To Do Today March 9
Below are my editor's picks for things to do today, Sunday, March 9:
  • Join Girl Scouts: Celebrate National Girl Scout Week, by registering your daughter to become a Framingham Girl Scout. Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts is holding a registration event at the Sheraton Framingham today from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Cost to register is $25. The registration event coincides with a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) trade show specifically for girls and Scouts at the hotel. Stop by to learn more, visit the trade show and registered your daughter. Scout programming starts at the Kindergarten level and runs through high school. For additional information, see the attached flyer.
  • Breakfast Buffet & GenealogyTemple Beth Am Brotherhood will hold its monthly breakfast & speaker series today at 9 a.m. Today's guest speaker is Jay Sage, who will provide tips on discovering your family connections. Sage took early retirement from MIT's Lincoln Laboratory, where he worked as a physicist, so he could devote more time to his passion for genealogy. He served as co-president of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Boston from 2000 to 2003 and is currently co-editor of the Society's journal, Mass-Pocha. This is the last breakfast before the town's annual election on April 1, so expect to see many of the Framingham candidates, too The breakfast is open to the public. Admission $12.
  • 20% off Unique Gifts:  Wild Ruby Artisan Galleria is participating in the  MetroWest Visitors Bureau's   Shop & Save MetroWest through today, March 9. Mention Shop & Save MetroWest and receive 20 percent off any one item in the store.
  • Check Your Clocks: Daylight Savings began overnight, so check your clocks this morning as you lost an hour of sleep. We “sprung ahead” to 3 a.m. at 2 a.m. You should also check batteries in smoke alarms and CO detectors in your home.
  • Purim Palooza: Designed for families with children ages 2-5, this event with Jenny the Juggler takes place at Potter Road Elementary from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Co-sponsored by the MetroWest Jewish Day School, attendees are encouraged to attend in costume and after the juggling show, make Purim Mishloach Manot (holiday baskets), eat hamantaschen (Purim pastries) and learn about the Purim tradition of giving.
