Fair-trade coffee, no doubt.
Tip for tonight
Give the good folks at Witchcraft Heights Elementary School high marks for dedication.
Tonight is the 30th annual Turkey Shoot, a really great event that has raised thousands of dollars for the school. If you like tons of raffles and you’re feeling lucky, this is the place to be. They raffle everything from turkeys to hotel stays.
And speaking of turkeys, School Committee member Nate Bryant will announce the winning raffle tickets as he has for the past decade. (That’s a joke, big guy).
“It wouldn’t be the same without him,” Principal Mark Higgins said.
Get there early. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
One more tip
For those of you not watching the Patriots on Sunday — you know who you are — there is a really interesting event at 4 p.m. at Hamilton Hall.
Arthur Liverant, founder of the Antiques Dealers Association of America, is speaking about early American furniture and bringing along several rare examples, including a desk made by a Salem cabinetmaker between 1785-1810.
Admission is $50, or $60 at the door, and includes a reception for Liverant. For tickets, visit www.hamiltonhall.org or call 978-744-0805.
Oh yeah, the money goes to the preservation of Hamilton Hall, a city treasure.
