Hanukkah starts at sundown on Wednesday, Dec. 1 and Framingham will hold its 19th Annual Holiday Tree Lighting on Friday, Dec. 3.
1. This is the last week for curbside yard waste collection. Yard waste collection occurs on the same day as your trash collection. Only yard waste contained in approved, paper biodegradable leaf bags or in covered 35-gallon plastic or metal barrels clearly marked "yard waste" will be collected. No plastic bags allowed. Any yard waste not conforming to these guidelines will not be collected and will be left at the curb.

3. The town of Framingham will hold its 19th Annual Holiday Tree Lighting at the Memorial Building on Friday night, Dec. 3 at 6:15. Framingham Girl Scouts will lead the crowd in carols on the steps outside, in anticipation of Santa's arrival on a fire truck. After Santa lights the tree, the crowd is invited inside Nevins Hall to meet Santa, have cookies and hear a performance from the elementary and middle school bands at 7 p.m.
4. Friday, Dec. 3 is opening night for Framingham High School Drama Company's "The Laramie Project." The Drama Company has a second show on Saturday night. If you haven't purchased tickets for this much anticipation production, you are out of luck as both shows have sold out. Break a leg!
