Mamma Mia opens a three-weekend-run at Cheney Hall on Friday but all shows are already sold out. Four local churches have holiday fairs on Saturday and each will be a good neighbor, telling its visitors about the other fairs that day. And Tuesday is Election Day.

There are church fairs Saturday at Concordia Lutheran, Center Congregational, South United Methodist and Second Congregational. These two women are helping at one of these events, but you'll have to visit our 'Humans of Manchester' gallery to find out who's who.
