Here are the (more than) Five Things for Thursday, August 2, 2012:
Get fit! (If you’re a woman.) There is a fit camp class for women 6:30 a.m. each Thursday at Curtis Corner Middle School. The admission cost is $10.
There is such a thing as a free lunch (if you’re a kid). Free youth lunches are available every Tuesday and Thursday until Aug. 17 at the Pier Middle School. For more info, click here. The program runs from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. This service is provided by the Narragansett Lions.
Not about telephones, so don’t bother Beyonce. The Rotary Club of Wakefield meets at Liliana’s Italian Restaurant at 12:15 p.m. They meet every Wednesday, you know, so swing by for fellowship, lunch and a guest speaker.
Tea time! The Kettle Pond Visitors Center in Charlestown is hosting tea and biscuits, and discussing the popular PBS film series Globe Trekkers. For more info, click here – the program is free, by the way, and starts at 3 p.m.
Not to be confused with Liam Gallagher, so presumably, there will be no fighting about scones. The Jesse Liam Band (music samples) plays at the South County Commons at 6 p.m. tonight. The concert is free and open to the public. This is part of the free concert series at the Commons.
The tango, the mamba, probably other cool stuff I don’t even know about. There is live music and dancing tonight at the Towers, starting at 7 p.m. The cost is $10.
In his defense, it’s not like he had a map. On this day in 1610, Henry Hudson sailed into the bay that later was renamed after him, thinking that he had reached the Pacific Ocean.
OK, maybe you retired one year too early, given how things are going this year… Happy 46th birthday to Tim Wakefield! Did you know that much like The Highlander, there can only be one successful knuckeball pitcher at one time? That’s why R.A. Dickey is suddenly successful since Wakefield’s retirement.
