Here are the (more than) Five Things for Friday, August 24, 2012:
Show that you CARE! The Laurel Lane Country Club in West Kingston hosts a charity golf tournament today for SK CARES, a non-profit that supports community volunteers for the SK School District. The tournament starts at 12:30 p.m., with a buy-in of $125 to play. For more info, click here.
Sales, markets and other fun stuff. Looking to exchange your American dollars for goods as opposed to services? Well, you’re in luck! Go here:
- The Goddard State Park farmers’ market is at 9 a.m.
- There is a garage sale at 9 a.m. on Post Road in South Kingstown.
How to watch a show with minimal monetary expenditure. Showings of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying are going on at Theatre By The Sea. For more info, click here. Most tickets are in the $35 range.
How to watch a show with your kids with minimal monetary expenditure. 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.
Not to be confused with their sister band, Morning Jazz Band, or The Afternoon Delight Pipes. The Narragansett Summer Concert Series continues at 6 p.m. with Nightlife Orchestra at Gazebo Park on Ocean Road.
“Space is big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-boggingly big it is.” – Douglas Adams. Explore some of that space tonight at the Frosty Drew observation night. It’s free, and starts at 7:30 p.m.
Steppin’ out! The South Kingstown Senior Center walking club has its weekly outing today. The fun starts at 9:30 a.m.
A gallery benefit show! There is a gallery show of Stephanie Parker’s work to benefit the Courthouse Center for the Arts. The exhibit is on display until Sept. 9, and open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays.
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!
“You can become famous but you can’t become unfamous.” And I’m probably not helping matters by mentioning that he turns 39 today.
