Lots of options on election day


Besides participating in town elections on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the gymnasium of Abington High School, residents will have many other options to fill the day. A Spring Fling dart tournament at 11 a.m., sponsored by the Abington VFW, 30 Central St., will raise funds for the Wounded Warrior Project, which assists wounded veterans who have returned from Iraq and Afghanistan. Registration takes place from 9 to 10:30 a.m., with an entry fee of $100 for each six- to nine-member team. There will also be a sale of books, CDs, and DVDs Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Abington Public Library. In the library’s parking lot, meanwhile, the Abington Lions Club will have an Eye Mobile providing free health screenings from noon to 4 p.m. For more information on the screenings, contact Ted Cummins at 617-967-0944. And Saving Abington with Green Energy is holding its annual townwide Clean Up Day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., with free T-shirts for the first 50 to sign up. For information, visit
