While we've got your attention about prom, Patch is planning Red Carpet coverage of the Coginchaug High School prom Saturday night, so look your best and look for our photo gallery and video of the big event on Sunday.

4. Package Stores Open? Despite that local liquor stores were not planning to open on Sundays despite a new law allowing them to sell alcohol, we were contacted by the owner of Little Rooster Liquors who said the store would be open on Sunday and Monday — Memorial Day. Be sure to check your local store for holiday hours.
5. You can find great advice on Facebook: This comes from the Country Flower Farm Facebook page: "Your petunias may need deadheading after a few days of rain and high humidity. And yes, even the self-deadheading petunias will look much better after cleaning." Got a go-to Facebook page for great advice? Let us know where you go.
