Sounds of Lynnfield

Last SEPAC meeting of the year with Rec Director Julie Mallett

The Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC) is hosting its last meeting of the year as the school year comes to a close. Taking heed of the upcoming summer months, Recreation Director Julie Mallett will be present to answer questions and discuss the recent changes within the Rec Department that benefit children with special needs. Specifically, Mallett will be talking about the merger of Lynnfield Community Connections with the Rec Department to foster greater inclusivity of children with special needs and make recreation programs more accessible to all. The Q&A will be an informal session. Interested parties may make their way to the School Administration Building (525 Salem St.) on May 17, where the session will be held from 7:00-8:30 p.m.

Lynnfield Library to host annual Spring Book Sale

Completed works will be displayed at the Townscape GeraniumFest and Kids Day event on Saturday, May 20.
