Today is Tuesday, Oct. 2. Here are five things to know in Peabody.
- Make Your Own Scarecrows: Kids of all ages can stop by Brooksby Farm from noon - 3 p.m. this weekend (Saturday through Monday) and next to make their very own scarecrows. You bring the clothes to stuff, the farm staff provides the straw. You can also help support Haven from Hunger by bringing a canned good with you to donate. Some needed items are tuna fish, peanut butter, spaghetti and tomato sauce.
- Apple picking is also still available at Brooksby daily 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. and the farm store is open 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
- Farmers Market: The Tuesday Farmers Market is today from 2-7 p.m. over in front of City Hall. Stop by to peruse the local wares.
- The Board of Directors for the American Red Cross of Northeast Massachusetts are inviting you down to check out the refurbished Peabody headquarters on Lowell Street and meet the staff and public officials this afternoon from 3-5 p.m. The open house is at 85 Lowell St., which the Red Cross centralized all its local operations at earlier this year, expanding on the existing facility.
- Take note: The Peabody Cultural Collaborative Open House, which was originally scheduled for this Thursday, Oct. 4, has been rescheduled to Oct. 25 from 5-7 p.m. at the ArcWorks Community Art Center.
