Each morning, Westborough Patch presents “5 Things You Need to Know,” a collection of announcements, events, reminders and odd little ditties to help you organize your day. What will you be doing today?
1. The Chateau will host an Armstrong Elementary School fundraiser from 11:45 a.m. until closing. During this time, 20 percent of the guest's bill, including on takeout orders, will be donated to the school's Change X Hunger program. Guests must present the flyer on the school's website.
2. The Westborough Public Library hosts a discussion of the book "The House on Salt Hay Road," by Carin Clevidence, at 10:30 a.m.
3. Now through Nov. 25, call or visit any Especially for Pets location, including the Westborough store, and purchase either a 40 lb. Diamond Naturals Beef & Rice Dog Food ($34.99) or a 30 lb. Blue Buffalo Chicken Adult Dog Food ($45.99). Especially for Pets will match this donation to help animals displaced by Hurricane Sandy.
4. The Westborough Newcomers Club holds a Night of Holiday Shopping from 7 to 9 p.m. at St. Luke's Parish Center.
