Why Go: Get your 2-year-old or older child into his pajamas and head to the Children's Room to listen to a story and get sleepy.
Why Go: Melrose is full of “older” homes and that’s a good part of the city’s charm. Unfortunately, many of these older homes present challenges for heating, cooling and saving energy. On Tuesday, the Melrose Energy Commission (MEC) is hosting a mini-workshop at the Melrose Public Library on Increasing Comfort and Saving Energy in Older Homes. This free program, which begins at 7 p.m., is part of the Melrose Energy Challenge, an ongoing effort by the MEC and Next Step Living to educate Melrose residents about various ways to save energy.
Why Go: Attorney Patrick Curley will share the latest strategies to protect your home, your hard-earned savings and your independence. Major changes in the law are coming that will impact seniors. This presentation is focused on those who wish to take action and preserve and protect their assets before it is too late. This free presentation is ideal for seniors, the children of seniors or anyone else interested in learning about Estate Planning and Asset Protection. To register, call the Melrose Milano Senior Center at 781-662-6886.

Pricing: $30 general admission, $11 students.
