They’re testing the emergency sirens that day. They will start blasting away around 8 a.m. and be testing sporadically throughout the day.
A well-known man of the cloth was all over the TV yesterday.
The Rev. John Sheridan, pastor at St. James Church, celebrated the weekly TV Mass live on Catholic television. The program aired several times during the day and can still be seen on the following link: www.catholictv.com/Most-Holy-Name-of-Jesus.aspx.
In case you missed it, Gov. Deval Patrick recently named Tom O’Donnell of the O’Donnell Funeral Home to a four-year appointment on the state Board of Registration of Funeral Directors and Embalmers.
That’s the board that oversees the licenses of funeral directors and inspects funeral homes. It’s a big honor.
Tom, by the way, has been in the business 45 years.
If you’re looking for a hot night after a cold day, check out First Friday tonight in Salem.
Many businesses are open until 8 p.m., and special events are taking place throughout the downtown. There’s a cooking demonstration at The Picklepot on Pickering Wharf and an open house from 6-8 p.m. at the Salem Theatre Company on Lafayette Street.
