1. Don't miss a classic! is scheduled to be performed Friday at 7 p.m. at .

2. Light up the night: Stoneham Patch has yet to receive an entry into the holiday decorating contest. If your home is tabbed the best decorated in the nation, the Stoneham school district will receive $100,000 from Patch.

3. Avoid rush hour: Check out our new "Traffic & Gas" category for the latest on gas prices and how areas where traffic may be an issue.

4. Get blogging: We're looking for some unpaid bloggers who either live or work in Stoneham to contribute to our "Local Voices" section. We'd love to have folks passionate about writing on various localized topics such as cooking, fashion, fitness, high school sports and the outdoors. We'd prefer bloggers who can contribute one blog with photo(s) per week. If interested, email Stoneham Patch Editor Mark Ouellette at mark.ouellette@patch.com and provide previous blog experience or writing samples and a resume (optional).

5. Try the Patch iPhone app: Want to download the free Patch iPhone app? All you have to do is visit Apple's iTunes website to download it.
