Neighborhood Tag Sale, MLK Memorial Fundraiser, and Today's Weather

5 things you need to know about Simsbury on Monday, September 3, 2012.

Good morning Simsbury! Today is Monday, September 3, 2012 and there are 119 days left in the year.

Today's Weather: The National Weather Service predicts partly sunny skies with a high of 79 degrees and relatively high humidity.

Tonight: The low will be 64 degrees with a 40 percent chance of rain.

It's Labor Day, and hopefully most of us are taking some well-deserved time off. If you're looking for something to occupy your free time, there's a Neighborhood Tag Sale on Munnisunk Drive and Field Drive today starting at 8 a.m.

If you haven't taken the cell phone tour of downtown Simsbury, today would be a perfect day to check it out. The one-hour tour is narrated by First Selectwoman Mary A. Glassman and will lead you to 11 local sites known for their architectural or historic value. To take the tour dial 860-323-9029 and start walking. The program is offered through the Simsbury Senior Center and is completely free- with the exception of your cell phone bill.

The Simsbury Free Library, the Simsbury Historical Society and the producers of a documentary about the time Martin Luther King, Jr. spent in Simsbury, are working to raise $200,000 for a permanent memorial. For more information on the project visit the MLK in CT website.
