Mostly sunny weather, a class on the basics of Facebook and a chance to play bridge.
"Five Things You Need to Know Today" is a Patch column that provides readers with essential, daily information at a glance. Check back later for more, and let us know what you think of the new feature in the comments section.
Today is Thursday, Jan. 6. Here are 5 things you need to know:
- Some sun, some clouds: The weather today is going to be mostly cloudly and in the mid to low-30s. It will drop below freezing tomorrow night, but will not get nearly as cold as it did on this day in 1972 when it was -6 degrees, a record low for this date.
- Figure out Facebook: The Burlington Public Library is offering a technology program "Introduction to Facebook" this evening from 6 to 9 p.m. The class is free and open to the public, so come down and learn about this social networking site, set up a Facbook account and create a profile, select privacy settings, find friends, and upload pictures and videos. Once you do, remember to "like" Burlington Patch's Facebook page.
- Bridge: The Burlington Public Library is hosting the Thursday Night Bridge group tonight at 6:30 p.m. The session is open to the public, so come down, play some bridge, and meet new people.
- Public meetings: The Burlington Housing Authority is holding a meeting this morning at 10 a.m. in the Housing Authority Office, 15 Birchcrest St. Additionally, the Planning Board has a meeting at 7:30 p.m. this evening in the hearing room on the second floor of Town Hall.
- Conjunction Junction, what's your function: Learning was never so much fun as it was with Schoolhouse Rocks. The show premiered on this day in 1973, delighting children and adults alike with such animated pieces as "I'm Just A Bill," which taught youngsters about the legislative process, "Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, Get Your Adverbs Here" and "Interplanet Janet."
