Peabody offers plethora of events

November 20, 2013 by  

Peabody is hosting a variety of events this week, and most likely poster printing and banner printing are being used to announce them to the community in the hope of attracting as many people as possible.

There will be an open house at the Kiley School tomorrow in celebration of American Education Week. Special guests at the event will include state representatives Ted Speliotis and Leah Cole, Deputy Commissioner of Education Alan Ingram, and state senator Joan Lovely. Each school in the district will be having exhibits, refreshments will be provided by culinary students from Peabody High School, and entertainment will be offered by the Performing Arts Department of the school.

Friday will be ‘Dress Down Day for Hunger’ and Haven for Hunger, the food pantry in the town, is asking for the participation of local businesses in this endeavor. For a donation of $5 or $10 to the pantry, employers are being asked to let their staff dress down for the day. All proceeds collected go to the Haven for Hunger.

Following this, several seasonal crafts fairs will be held over the weekend. At the Community Covenant Church, there will be the annual Scandinavian Fair, and at the West Memorial Middle School, there will be a crafts fair. Both of these will be held on Saturday.

Finishing the weekend, the Latkepalooza-Chanukah Celebration will take place for the second year at the Aviv Centers for Living on Sunday, November 24. During the afternoon event, there will be latke tastings, Israeli dancing, activities and workshops for children, lectures, programs for adults, and a kosher lunch available for purchase.
