Five Things You Need to Know Today: Dec. 7

70th anniversary of Pearl Harbor commemorated, winter concerts begin and more for your Wednesday in Weston.

1. Pearl Harbor remembered: Today is the 70th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. In recognition of that day, the Council on Aging and the Weston High School Intergenerational Club are hosting a special showing of the WHS video production "In the Blackout," based on local experiences on the home front, at 1:30 p.m. at the COA.

2. Climate change film: At 7 p.m. at the Weston Library, the Weston Climate Group will show the film "Carbon Nation," described on the group's website as "an optimistic, solutions-based, non-preachy, non-partisan, big tent film that shows tackling climate change boosts the economy, increases national and energy security and promotes health and a clean environment."

3. Winter concerts begin: Tonight is the high school band concert, the first of five winter concerts by the Friends of Weston Music. All concerts start at 7:30 p.m., are at the Weston High School auditorium and have a $5 charge for adults.

4. Government: In Town Hall meetings, the Planning Board meets at 9:30 a.m.; the Tree Advisory Group at 2:30 p.m.; and the Historical Commission at 7:30 p.m.

5. Outside: Showers are expected to continue today, with the high predicted to be a chillier 49 degrees.

He was stationed with the U.S. Marines in Hawaii. He was on the Marine Corps swim team. And, Cowles only had to occasionally work the switchboard at nights and on weekends. http://wdcpost.blogspot.com/2011/12/pearl-harbor-attack-remembered-at-70th.html

Per item #1 on the five things, I attended the showing of "In the Blackout" today and will have a story/video up on the site tomorrow...stay tuned. Kudos to those amazing kids!

Liz, looking forward to that. The "home front" angle of war is always such an important story to tell. I remember finding letters from my British cousins who had painted their windows black during the attacks on London; dramatic stuff.
