Mark your calendars to attend the annual Vehicle Night on the Rowley Town Common on July 18 at 6:30 p.m.

This popular summer night of fun gives children the chance to sit in police and fire vehicles as well as some of the big town trucks, such as those from the Light Department and Highway Department. It is sponsored by the Friends of the Rowley Library.


There are three candidates in the running for the vacant position on the town’s Board of Light Commissioners.

At a special joint meeting of the light board and the Board of Selectmen today at 7:15 p.m. at Town Hall (during the regularly scheduled selectmen’s meeting), the candidates will be interviewed and a vote will be taken to fill the position. Those to be interviewed are David Levesque, Sayad Moudachirou and Michael Viccaro.


There also are vacancies on the town’s Planning Board, Zoning Board of Appeals, Conservation Commission and Rowley Cultural Council. Those interested in these positions should send a letter of intent to the Board of Selectmen or call its office at 978-948-2372.


New to the list of passes offered by Rowley Public Library this year is one for half-price admission to New England Aquarium for the months of July and August.

The library also offers passes to the Museum of Science, Children’s Museum Boston, Wenham Museum, Zoo New England and more. Contact the library at 978-948-2859 to reserve your pass.


The Friends of the Rowley Council on Aging is holding its second annual Shoe & Textile Drive from April to October.

During this time period, residents are invited to drop off gently used shoes, slippers, flip-flops, purses, backpacks, belts, sheets, towels and blankets at the dropbox located in the Town Hall Annex parking lot at 39 Central St.


A finance for seniors seminar will be offered July 10 at 11 a.m. at the Rowley Council on Aging.

Financial planner Brandon White will be on hand to provide information on finances as you age, life insurance opportunities and choices, savings options and more. Reserve a seat by calling the council at 978-948-7637.


As part of the summer series of fun at Rowley Public Library, magician and juggler Scott Jameson will perform July 17 at 11 a.m.

Jameson promises to captivate young audiences by making umbrellas appear out of thin air, bringing drawings to life, spinning basketballs with precision, and getting the audience involved throughout the 45-minute show.
