Five Things to Know Today, April 14

Don't miss tonight's PRISM meeting if you have a stake in Memorial Drive's future.

Welcome to Thursday. How was that peach cobbler? Here are some things to know going into the day.

Taking back our community, part two:  The second town hall-type meeting by PRISM (Pride Rings in Stone Mountain) on fighting crime on Memorial Drive and elsewhere will be held at St. Timothy United Methodist Church at 7 p.m. Speakers and participants include officials from the DeKalb County Police Department, code enforcement, the district attorney's office, and more. 

The IRS and you: Tax day is tomorrow, and today is the last day to take advantage of the free help from AARP Tax Aide volunteers at the Sue Kellogg Library in the village.

Movers and shakers: The Stone Mountain Woman's Club meets at 10:30.

The weather: Warmer, with highs in the upper 70s, according to the National Weather Service. Check the right side of top of your Patch page for the current temperature, and let your cursor hover over the temperature to see an extended forecast. 

On this day in history:  President Abraham Lincoln was shot in Ford's Theatre by John Wilkes Booth on April 14, 1865.

An apology: The article on the charter school for architecture and design that was mentioned in yesterday's Five Things will be on today's Patch. Sorry for the delay.
