5 Things To Know In Wilmington On Tuesday, July 14, 2020

WILMINGTON, MA — Below are 5 things to know in Wilmington on Tuesday, July 14, 2020:

#1) Library On The Lawn

Would you like to browse and checkout books and DVDs?  Be sure to stop by the front of the Wilmington Memorial Library from 10am to noon to peruse several carts of both adult and children’s materials.  Masks are required and we ask all to respect social distancing. This event will not take place during inclement weather.

#2) Watch Wilmington Economic Development Committee Meeting

The Wilmington Economic Development Committee meets at 6pm via Zoom. Read the agenda HERE. The meeting will be televised live on WCTV and wctv.org.

#3) Keep Wilmington Beautiful — Walk With A Purpose

As part of the library’s Wilmington Earth Year initiative, library staff is encouraging everyone to help planet Earth by picking up litter as they walk.  Swing by the library the week of July 13-18 (Monday-Thursday 10-7 and Friday-Saturday 10-4) and pick up a packet consisting of litter bag, gloves, and bonus items.  Upon arrival, call the library and a staff member will place the items in the trunk of your car.  Simply fill the bag as you walk Wilmington; feel free to share photos of your efforts by tagging the library.  Many hands make light work and also make for a beautiful town.  We ask that each family pick up one packet; additional litter bags and gloves can be provided upon request.  Quantities are limited.

**As a bonus, you will receive a re-useable “unpaper” towel to use at home plus a box of baking soda and recipes for homemade cleaners and toiletries. Both help meet badge requirements on the Wilmington Earth Year Challenge. A big thank you to the Friends of the Library 2019 Annual Appeal for funding Wilmington Earth Year program

#4) Virtual Preschool Story Time At Wilmington Library

The Wilmington Memorial Library is hosting a Virtual Preschool Story Time at 10am. This storytime for preschoolers includes books, rhymes, and music. Ages 3-5. Zoom Meeting Room invitations will be emailed to registered attendees at least one hour before the event. Register HERE.

#5) Wilmington Students Can Pickup ‘Grab & Go’ Breakfasts & Lunches Curbside Outside WHS 

Wilmington Food Services will continue to put forward best efforts to feed our students during this time and will be preparing bagged breakfasts and lunches out of our kitchen at Wilmington High School. These meals will be available for any students, regardless of which school you attend in the District, and will be prepared in our safe and sanitary environment by Wilmington staff.

You may pick up all breakfast and lunches outside the Events Entrance at WHS (off of Adams Street) every Tuesday and Thursday from 9:30-11:30 a.m. We ask you pull your vehicle up to the curb, pop your car trunk or hatch and we will gladly place the meals inside your vehicle.

This is available to all students, including students attending other schools outside the district, residing in Wilmington.

We want to make sure you enjoy your breakfast & lunch safely:

  • All refrigerated items should be kept cold, under 41 degrees
  • All frozen food should be kept frozen until ready to heat
  • Discard any items after 5 days
  • All food is fully cooked but you may choose to microwave some items if you do please:
    o remove all wrapping and use microwave safe dish
    o lunch and breakfast items such as breakfast sandwiches have heating instructions and should be heated until internal temperature of 165 degrees
