Here are the (more than) Five Things for Sunday, September 16, 2012:
Free horse show! There is an A-rated horse show at the Smithbridge Stable on Curtis Corner Road at 7 a.m. For more info, click here.
Summer’s over, womp womp – Make it go out with a bang. The 10th annual Summer End’s Festival starts at noon, lasting until 5 p.m., at Narragansett Town Beach. Admission is free, but parking is $5 in town lots. Food trucks, kite flying demonstrations and music will be on display, and beer and wine will be available.
DANGER WILL ROBINSON! Starting this week, we’re going to be phasing out the adding of new calendar events by our staff. This means that if you’re from a group or organization, you’ll have to start doing them yourself. It’s pretty simple, though! While logged into your Patch account, just go here. Adding your event ensures it’ll show up in searches, and be eligible for me to give it shout-outs in Five Things.
Sign up for our daily newsletter! Hey, I realize we have a lot of neat features and knick-knacks on the site, so it can be confusing to keep up with it all. Want just one simple, easy to read daily digest? Sign up for our e-mail newsletter here then. It comes out between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. roughly, every single day of the week. Amazing, I know!
The old college try! On this day in 1880, The Cornell Daily Sun began printing. It’s the oldest independent college newspaper now.
Newly single, oh la la! Happy 41st birthday to Saturday Night Live alum Amy Poehler!
