5 Things: The Day After the Election
Westwood on September 7, 2012. Here are some things you want to know.
1. While the polls weren't too busy here in Westwood yesterday for the primary election, there were some results in what was probably the most well-contested race. Joseph Selvaggi defeated Matt Temperley for the Republican spot on the ballot in November, both here in Westwood and overall in Massachusetts.
2. Hale Reservation will be hosting the 9th annual Hale Triathlon this Sunday. There are races for adults and youths. This event supports the campership fund. You can register at the Hale website, or on the day of the event, which starts at 9 a.m.
3. The Friends of Westwood Performing Arts are currently seeking out people interesting in placing an advertisement in their program book. The FWPA is an organization made up of volunteers who are dedicated to supporting the performing arts in the Westwood Schools. Each year they award scholarships, give access to cultural events, provide refreshments for performers, and pay for enrichment programs, promotional signage, equipment and supplies. The FWPA raises money through membership dues, donations, a prize raffle and advertisements in the program book. If you're interested in placing an ad, just go to the FWPA homepage and follow the instructions.
