How do you know it’s spring in Belmont? It’s the start of allergy season. Ah-choo!
• It’s Earth Day. Over at Paprika Kids at 404 Trapelo Rd., they are holding an Earth Day Recycling Open Workshop from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. where they are making a fun project out of a recycle materials. Bring a toilet paper roll and Paprika Kids will provide the rest of the materials.
• Curb-side garbage collection and recycling (it’s blue bins this week) is delayed a day due to the Patriots’ Day holiday. So today, Tuesday, April 22, is “Monday” in the trash removal universe.
• If you are a parent of elementary and middle school students, you have in all likelihood seen and read the books of children author and illustrator Jef Czekaj. Today from 11 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in the Belmont Public Library’s Assembly Room, you and your child can meet Czekaj for a wonderful children’s program. Not a bad way to spend some time with the kids who are on spring recess.
• The Belmont Board of Selectmen will be approving next year’s water and sewer rates at their early-morning meeting, 8 a.m. at Town Hall. Bring coffee.
