This lesson in local history will be about a house that has been home to four doctors since its construction in the late 1830s. Jo-Ann Sullivan, Northborough resident and a society trustee, will lead the program. The event will take place Friday, Feb. 23, at 7:30 p.m., at 52 Main St. The program is free and open to the public.


Tenacre Country Day School in Wellesley is hosting a community blood drive March 1 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Tenacre’s Wells Playhouse, 78 Benvenue St. Although Tenacre students are too young to donate blood, they will contribute by assisting with registration, guiding donors to the playhouse, and making posters. They will also write thank you notes to donors. The drive is co-sponsored by the American Red Cross, and is open to all members of the community. Appointments can be made, but walk-ins are also welcome. To make an appointment, contact the American Red Cross at 1-800-RED CROSS or visit www.redcrossblood.org.

Buddy the Blood Drop spent quality time with Tenacre Country Day School students before a blood drive last year. A similar drive at the school is planned for March 1.Tenacre Country Day School
