Monday is Labor Day and next Thursday brings a special 'Imagine Main Steam Rollin'' and in between it's back to school -- on Tuesday and (for grades 6, 8 and 10-12) Wednesday. The big story this year: Verplanck is reopening, while the high school has a new mascot and a repaved "senior lot." Scroll down for more including a look back at a busy last weekend and, remember, starting next week, you'll need to have a subscription to get OneManchester on Thursday nights. Here's how to subscribe and here's what that's all about.

Reminders: There are special hours Friday -- with libraries closed from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for staff meetings but open 1-5 p.m.; also Friday is the last day for Children’s summer reading prizes. Monday, libraries are closed for Labor Day.
Also: We've got more town and school district events and notes listed in our 'OneMan Central' log (and the town events calendar is another trove of information). If we are missing anything, anywhere, just email email@example.com to suggest/contribute an item.
