Teens creating verses at town library

The Rowley Public Library Young Adult Writers’ Club will hold a Poetry Workshop for teens on Monday, March 11, at 6 p.m. Teens will be offered the chance to write and read poems under the guidance of award-winning poet Carla Panciera. Panciera will introduce the tools all poets use. The workshop is open to established poets and those who have never written a poem before. Call the library at 978-948-2850 for more information on this free workshop.


A free presentation, “The Teen Brain,” will be held in the Triton Regional High School auditorium on Thursday, March 14, at 7 p.m. The presentation and Q&A session will be hosted by Jeremy Wardle, author of “Parent’s Guide to Raising Mindful Children.” Wardle will discuss ways for adults to better understand the critical differences between teen and adult brains, in an effort to come to a greater understanding of how teenagers think and make decisions.

He will be available at the council on Mondays after 12:30 p.m. and on Fridays after 9 a.m. Rowley senior citizens can call the council at 978-948-7637 to schedule an appointment with McKenny.

The latest resident to take out nomination papers was Richard (Dick) Cummings, who will be looking to continue on the Triton Regional School Committee, a seat he was appointed to at mid-year due to Lane Bourn’s departure. Cummings, who had just finished his second term on the Board of Selectmen, ran for School Committee in May 2012 but was defeated by incumbent Mary Murphy.
