WILMINGTON, MA — Below are 5 things to know in Wilmington on Tuesday, August 11, 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) Wilmington Senior Center To Hold 1950’s Virtual Trivia

Give Zoom a chance and join Kelly for Zoom Trivia! This month’s trivia will be from the 1950’s (Tuesday, August 11, 2020, from 9:30am to 10:30am) and the 1960’s (Tuesday, August 25, 2020, from 9:30am to 10:30am).

There will be 20 questions varying from Pop culture, movies, music, history, sports, and more! Test your knowledge, see some friendly faces, and have fun!

If you are hesitant to sign up because you have never used Zoom, call the center and speak with Kelly. Zoom may seem in mida ng but it is actually very easy and fun to use. Kelly can set up a one on one Zoom meeting with you and walk you through all the steps over the phone or just answer any questions you may have. We encourage anyone interested to try Zoom to sign up for an event or speak with Kelly. Though the warm weather is here now and we are able to sit outside and catch up while social distancing, the weather may not always make this feasible. Lets all learn Zoom together and be prepared for those not so nice weather days!

You must sign up for this event. See below on how to play and how to sign up. Limited space is available. This event is free of cost.

How to Play:

All you need is a pen and paper! I will ask the ques on and players will write down their answer.
