"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 feature in the comments section.
Today is Monday, June 6. Here are 5 things you need to know:
- Mostly sunny: Looks like it will be a nice day today. According to the National Weather Service we can expect clear skies with a high temperature near 75 degrees. There may be afternoon showers, but there is only a 20 percent chance of that.
- Discussing romance: Barnes & Noble Booksellers, 98 Middlesex Tpke, is kicking off it's summer The Search" by Nora Roberts. New members are always welcome.
- Can drive for cancer: The American Cancer Society's Burlington Relay for Life team The Butterflies is holding a redeemable can and bottle drive to raise money for cancer research. Drop off your recyclables at 5 Mallard Way or 7 Town Line Road.
- In case you missed it: Burlington Patch has recently started a regional that we are posting every Saturday morning throughout the yard sale season. If you are holding a sale and want some free press for it send an email to Richard.Hosford@Patch.com and check in on Saturday mornings to find out where you can get some great deals.
- Freedom*Brotherhood*Sacrifice*Victory: On this day in 1944, the Allied troops crossed the English Channel and landed on the beaches of Normandy in France. The invasion began the end of the Nazi reign over Western Europe. Although the day did not go exactly as military leaders planned, D-Day is considered a success. The Normandy invasion has been the inspiration for the film Saving Private Ryan and the mini-series Band of Brothers. (Anyone recognize where our opening line is from? It’s the banner on the Army’s official D-Day Web site.)
