Event Spotlight: 29th Annual Stoneham Town Day is Saturday

Stoneham Town Day is slated for Saturday, Sept. 15 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Town Common.

Event organizers are gearing up for the 29th annual Stoneham Town Day on Saturday.

Town Day is expected to run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 15 at the . If inclement weather rolls in on Saturday, the event will be postponed to Sunday, Sept. 16 and will run at the same hours previously mentioned.

Stoneham Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Jennifer Welter, who is organizing her first Town Day, is looking forward to the event which she hopes will draw "several thousand people."

"As many people know, Rosemary Dujsik and I are both new to the Chamber of Commerce this year," Welter told Stoneham Patch. "With Town Day such a tremendous community event, our focus is on repeating that success. We're trying our hardest to accommodate all our participating members, community groups and entertainers."

Roughly 110 businesses, nonprofits and other vendors are lined up to participate at Town Day, according to Welter. 

One notable change from last year's Town Day is there won't be a concert stage like there was last year featuring several bands, but two disc jockeys are lined up to perform, according to Welter.

Members from the Board of Selectmen, School Committee and other departments will be volunteering to get wet at a dunk tank during the free event. Demonstrations will be going on, and food and drinks will be available for purchase.

The Stoneham Police Department, in conjunction with the Governor’s Auto Theft Task Force, will sponsor an Auto Theft Prevention Program called “VIN Etching,” according to a press statement.

The event will be held at DPW Garage on Pine Street from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., read the statement. The process, which takes approximately 5-10 minutes, etches the V.I.N. (Vehicle Identification Number) of your vehicle into all the glass windows of your vehicle by using a computer generated stencil and a glass reactive acid treatment, read the statement. This provides a visible deterrent to theft and can be good for a discount of 15% or more on your comprehensive auto insurance, the statement adds.

To participate you need to have the following items:

1. A vehicle with a current and valid registration

2. $10.00 cash, paid to the Auto Theft Strike Force

3. A valid license to operate a motor vehicle in your possession
