Here are the (more than) Five Things for Friday, August 3, 2012:
Mmm, coffee and networking! What could be sweeter? The Southern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce is hosting its “First Friday” coffee event at the Contemporary Theater Company at 8 a.m. The cost is just $5, and it’s a great networking event.
Steppin’ out! The South Kingstown Senior Center walking club has its weekly outing today. The fun starts at 9:30 a.m.
Farmers’ markets, festivals, concerts and other events! Here’s the listing for today:
- The weekly Goddard State Park farmers’ market starts at 9 a.m.
- The Theatre by the Sea 2012 Children’s Festival starts at 10 a.m., and coincidentally, admission is $10. There is another session at noon, by the way.
- The 2012 Narragansett Summer Concert series takes part at 6 p.m. at 35 Ocean Road, a.k.a. Gazebo Park. Admission is free, and tonight’s band is Abbey Rhode.
- Frosty Drew in Charlestown is hosting its weekly public observation night at 7:30 p.m. The event is free.
DANGER WILL ROBINSON! Starting in early September, 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!
He probably complained about the postage rate for that too. On this day in 1527, the first ever letter from North America was sent by John Rut.
Look at this pretty guy! Happy 35th birthday to Tom Brady.
