5 Things You Need to Know Today: April 5
Our former mayor has taken a new job with the state of Massachusetts, and teachers and students have teamed up to paint "The Rock" in honor of Adam Bakr.
1. Students are still passionately advocating for the return of assistant principal Adam Bakr to Marlborough High School. Even some teachers have taken to the cause, and reportedly helped students paint "The Rock" on Rt. 85 near the Hudson line. What do you think about this situation? Could all this attention help the prospects of Bakr returning to school?
2. Former mayor Nancy Stevens has taken a job with the state of Massachusetts. We have all the details here on Marlborough Patch.
3. In preparation for Marlborough High School's senior class All-Nighter Friday, June 1, there will be several upcoming and on-going benefits: Now through May 31 at Stevie's Eatery for every menu item ordered over $6, $1 will be donated to the All-Nighter. Visit the website for a coupon. There will also be a Spring Fling Saturday, at 8 p.m., April 28 at the Masonic Hall.
4. There are only a few days left to file your taxes before the April 15 deadline. Do you know who you are going to use, or did a local accountant or business do a great job filing for you? Vote in this week's Best of Patch Readers' Choice poll and tell us about your experience in the comments.
5. We recently received word of some great customer service at an area grocery store. Lori Vintilescu, a Marlborough resident and Patch reader, was shopping at the new Wegmans in Northborough with her two-year-old twins, and realized she had forgotten her wallet only when she had gone through the checkout. The store manager took notice and allowed Vintilescu take her groceries home, then bring back payment after she picked up her other child from school. She was so impressed by this customer service that she kindly shared her story with us. Have you had a pleasant experience like this at a local business recently? Tell us about it in the comments.
