That sound you hear is life slowly returning to normal. Traffic volumes are building on Route 18. People are walking around with non-home haircuts. And we can talk about things like Rabies Clinics and Compost Site hours.
Here’s what else is happening this weekend you should know about.
Class of 2020 Senior Cruise: Abington High School’s seniors should be walking across the graduation stage this Saturday. But the ceremony has been pushed back to August out of an abundance of caution. However, the senior class will start celebrating anyway on Saturday with a cross town “Senior Cruise” that will bring them from the High School, to the Woodsdale Elementary School, to the Beaver Brook Elementary School. People are encouraged to wave and cheer — but stay mindful of social distancing guidelines regarding masks and physical distancing.
Senior Awards & Scholarships Announced: Always good news here.
Rabies Clinic: Dog or cat need a rabies shot? That happens Saturday morning at Town Hall.
Compost Site: The town’s Compost Site, which is located at the former town landfill on Groveland Street, will be open Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. In addition to disposing of yard waste for free, residents can also drop off small electronics and other recyclables for a small fee.
Outside seating: Local restaurants, which have been limited to take-out and delivery service only since March, will eagerly be awaiting news from Gov. Charlier Baker whether they’ll be able to start serving customers as early as Monday. Seating will likely only be able to happen outdoors, which poses a challenge, as not every restaurant currently has outdoor seating. The Board of Selectmen and Acting Town Manager Scott Lambiase at their meeting Monday evening could start start granting requests from Abington restaurants to open temporary outdoor seating areas.
