Here are the (more than) Five Things for Friday, June 29, 2012:
Farming, markets and the combination of the aforementioned. The Goddard State Park farmers’ market is held every Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. until Oct. 26. Click here for more info.
Did you miss fine art this weekend? If you missed the fine arts festival last weekend, then you might want to check out the photos of Onne van der Wal and ceramic artist Charlie Baramonde at the Courthouse Center for the Arts. The galleries are open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more info, click here.
Crash into me. The Kingston Free Library’s film club, Potter Productions, will show the Oscar-winning Crash at 7:30 p.m. tonight. The film is rated R, and not really appropriate for children. For more info, click here.
“My god, it’s full of stars!” If you have an interest in astronomy, well, Frosty Drew is the place for you tonight. They are holding an observation starting at 7:30 p.m. tonight. The event is held every Friday, in case you can’t make it today. For more info, click here.
Blogging, events, letters, what more could you want? Many people often ask me, “Hey are you the Patch guy?” And the answer is yes, yes I am. Then, most often they want to know how they can get things on the site. Let me present you with three options:
- The easiest way for me is if you use our blog form. If you have a user account, congrats! You can submit directly to our queue by going here. For more info on blogging, go here.
- If you think your item is more appropriate for the events calendar, that's a simple enough process as well. Go here, and then hit the “Add An Event” button at the bottom of the page. (Note: You might want to search for your event first, since we do have a calendar editor that adds things on her own awesome initiative.)
- Finally, do you need some input before posting? Or do you have a release that is more of a traditional “letter to the editor” thing? Fine then – send it along to me, either at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
I would like to receive your periodical on a full-time daily basis. If that's the case, then you can get it in your e-mail box, bright and early each morning, by going here.
Take that you limeys! In honor of all the soccer on ESPN lately, it should be noted that on this day in 1950, the United States shocked England in the World Cup. According to Wikipedia, which is never wrong, when the Brits saw the 1-0 score in the paper, they thought it was a misprint. Cheerio!
Matthew Good is appropriately named, because he’s not Sweet. Happy 40th to him! However, he’s still only my second-favorite singer named Matthew with a simple last name, next to the awesome Matthew Sweet. So instead, go watch a Sweet video here.
