5 Things You Should Know This Weekend - Feb. 17-19, 2012

Take in a concert or buy books this weekend in Farmington and Farmington Hills.

1. The weather

The sun will shine today, but we've got a good chance of seeing snow tonight and Saturday. The National Weather Service predicts highs will drop from 41 today to 33 on Sunday, with night-time lows in the upper to low 20s. 

2. Arts opportunities

Take a look at the variety of live performances taking place tonight in Farmington Hills:

  • Theater organist Lance Luce performs at First Presbyterian Church of Farmington, accompanying silent movies and leading a sing-along, at 7 p.m.
  • The Harrison High and North Farmington High dance companies perform tonight in their annual dance concert. The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium at Harrison. 
  • The Farmington Players latest production, Whose Wives Are They Anyway?, opens at 8 p.m. In this hilarious story, two husbands send their wives off shopping so they can have a golf weekend, then have to produce wives on short notice when they unexpectedly meet their new boss. 

3. Book sale at the market

Saturday's Old Winery Farmers Market will feature a book sale that benefits the Farmington Community Library and the market. Doors open at 9 a.m., and you can shop until 2 p.m. at the Old Winery/Powerhouse building on Grand River in Farmington. Learn more at theoldwinerymarket.com

4. First Aid/CPR

This comprehensive course follows the latest CPR and emergency cardiovascular care guidelines. Topics range from basic first aid to dealing with cardiac emergencies. Certifications meet OSHA standards for emergency care in the workplace and the Michigan Dept. of Education requirement for teacher certification. Cost is $50, and the class is held at 31500 W 13 Mile Rd, Farmington Hills. Check our event listing to learn how to register.

5. Look ahead: Presidents Day

Remember – trash and recycling should be put out on your regular day next week, because the federal holiday doesn't affect pick-up. Read our list of what's open and what's closed on Presidents Day
