Here are the (more than) Five Things for Tuesday, May 8, 2012:
Congrats to local Keene State College graduates! According to a release, the following local residents will be graduating from Keene State College this semester: Thomas Green (Saunderstown), Alyssa Marinaccio (Narragansett), Timothy Reiss (Wakefield), and Lea Swanson (Wakefield).
Make a book! The Robert Beverly Hale Library will host a book craft event for kids today from 1 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Children will make their own story books and bookmarks. All ages are welcome, and the event is free.
What a good choice, with Mother’s Day around the corner. Maury Loontjens Memorial Library will show I Remember Mama at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. The film follows the life of a Norwegian immigrant family in 1910 San Francisco and centers around the main character Mama (Irenne Dunne) and her detailed, penny-wise household budget. The movie was made in 1948, and it’s family-friendly.
Something appropriate for the tiny kids! Feel free to take the kids to 2-year-old lapsit storytime at the Kingston Free Library. Drop-ins are welcome, but please register ahead of time if you can. The fun runs from 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.
Register for Narragansett or South Kingstown summer camp! Narragansett Parks and Recreation is now taking registrations for its summer camp program, which begins June 25. The cost is $135, and the camp typically runs into late August. South Kingstown is also holding registrations, and to see their summer camp guide, go here.
The business of government business. Today’s municipal meetings:
- The Narragansett Town Council is meeting at town hall to discuss energy projects at 6:30 p.m.
- The South Kingstown Planning Board is meeting at 7 p.m. at town hall.
Happy 30th! Now hit some dingers. Red Sox first baseman Adrian Gonzalez turns 30 today.
