Today:

The Ten Year Plan Commission on Homelessness meeting is underway at the United Way of Forsyth County, running until 9:30 a.m. Then at 4 p.m. the Winston-Salem City Council’s finance committee has a budget workshop, there’s a HRC meeting at 5:30 p.m. and there’s a South Central area update drop-in meeting at 6 p.m. Details on all the above here.
Oh, and there’s a Forsyth County Commissioners budget workshop, special meeting AND commissioner briefing all today. Yep, they’re separate events.

Preservation Greensboro is holding a press conference at 1:27 p.m. — Ivan Saul Cutler seems to be a big fan of unusual start times — to announce a major material gift from Sherwin-Williams. It is also to declare that Mayor Nancy Vaughan has said the Blandwood Mansion is a natural location for major economic development announcements (I know, not that exciting, given there isn’t an actual big announcement right now).
Tonight:

The city of Greensboro holds annual neighborhood walks in each district, and tonight there’s a walk happening in District 2. It starts in the City View apartments community room near downtown at 5:30 p.m.

The Guilford County Board of Education meeting is tonight at 6 p.m. in its Eugene Street board room.

The Monti, a live storytelling event, is tonight at the Green Bean in Greensboro. Read about it in Triad City Beat, or here.

The North Carolina AFL-CIO is hosting a screening of American Winter, a documentary about how the recent financial crisis is affecting families, at the Weatherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro. The free screening starts at 7 p.m.

It’s Thirsty Thursday again at the Greensboro Grasshoppers game —no kids, we’re still talking about the traditional meaning of the term and not that new slang — at 7 p.m. The Winston-Salem Dash play a home game tonight too, at the same time.
