The Athens Downtown Development Authority holds its regular monthly meeting on Tuesday at 3pm in the Chamber of Commerce Building on Hancock Avenue. The agenda seems like a full one.

Wednesday marks the 17th Rabbit Box storytelling event, whose theme is "Haunted." Things get underway in the amphitheater of Sandy Creek Park at 7pm, so bring a blanket and chairs in case the seats go quickly. Storytellers tell an original story, without notes, that lasts roughly eight minutes. You'll hear stories from Sarah Bradley, Eddie Glikin, Lorraine Thompson, Kyrie Amos, Neal Priest, Katee Creevy, Hunt Brumby and Annie Prenni.

The Clarke County Board of Education meets Thursday for its regular monthly meeting. Board members could vote on whether to spend $834,000 on security upgrades to the public schools.
