Saturday, Oct. 5

Drop by the Peabody Essex Museum from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the second day of the Big Draw Festival. This year, PEM joins the internationally acclaimed campaign that is celebrated for its ambitious reach and simple goal: to get everyone drawing.

Grab a crayon and bring an imagination; remember, everyone can draw if given the chance. Learn more at PEM.org, or 978-745-9500. The museum is located at 161 Essex St. in Salem.

Stop by the Beverly Bootstraps parking lot for an Ethical Electronics Recycling Drive from 2 to 5 p.m. today and tomorrow, and drop off almost anything with a battery or plug for recycling. The cost is $1 for each pound in a load weighing less than 50 pounds, and 50 cents for each pound in a load of more than 50 pounds. A discounted recycling fee of 85 cents per pound in a load of less than 50 pounds is available to senior citizens, teachers, Beverly Rotary Club members, Beverly Bootstraps volunteers and employees, and those who donate canned food at the event. Hazardous materials of any kind will not be accepted, but e-readers, cell phones, tablets, laptops, ink and toner cartridges, and loose wires, cords, and cables will be accepted for free. The drive benefits Beverly Bootstraps and takes place rain or shine at 371 Cabot St. in Beverly. For more information, contact Christopher at 617-233-4120 or onehealthyocean@gmail.com.
