5 Things You Need to Know Today: June 20
Mother Nature couldn't wait to prove to us that it's summer. So, grab an ice cold beverage and relax with a good book—or take a dip.
Our weekday morning column, 5 Things You Need to Know, provides you with information that can help you plan your day and give you some fodder for water cooler conversations.
1. It's the first official day of summer, and the longest day of the year. So...
2....it's appropriate, but inconvenient (for those who don't love the heat), that it's supposed to be a scorcher today. (And tomorrow. But let's start with today.) Stay hydrated, stay out of the sun, and take a look at some tips officials offer for keeping cool.
3. Summer means, among other things, summer reading! Whether you're a child required to read, or an adult who'd love to make more time to read for pleasure, what's on your list? See Patch's summer reading lists, brought to you by author James Patterson, for some teen and kid-friendly suggestions.
5. It's one of our goals here at Marlborough Patch to give you the information you need. One of the ways we do this is by responding in a timely fashion to your questions, and answering them through our "You Ask, Patch Answers," column. It's simply, really: you ask a question, we answer it. If there's something in the city that has you scratching your head, or you don't know where to find the info you need, send questions our way.
