Five Things: Firefighter Testing, Local Shopping and More
Five things you need to know today, Feb. 24.
1) Bad news for local shopping fans
Grand is closing its doors, according to an announcement on its website. The Somerville Avenue shop is hosting a half-off closing sale this weekend, so head over and stock up on locally made furnishings and wares.
2) Speaking of shopping locally
The Somerville Winter Farmer’s Market continues every Saturday through May 26. You can pick up all sorts of locally grown and made goods starting 9:30 a.m. tomorrow at the Center for the Arts at the Armory.
3) Only you…
Pretty much everyone wants to be a firefighter at some point in life. Now’s your chance: The state is offering a firefighter exam on April 28. Applications are due March 19. You can find the forms you need on Mass.gov’s civil service page.
4) Somerville nights
Sorry, but today’s a washout, starting with a wintry mix that should change over to rain later in the morning. The National Weather Service has issued a special weather statement warning of a slippery commute, so be careful as you head into work.
