Dear Readers,

Thank you for following our special editions this week with coverage of Town Meeting. Today we have the highlights from Wednesday night’s session, which included an unusual pause in the proceedings. In other stories, we learn how Needham’s school enrollment numbers differ from neighboring towns, and we take a look at just how commodious Needham has become.

Thanks, as always, for being with us,

Peter, Fred, Jeanne and the Observer team
