Here are the (more than) Five Things for Thursday, December 13, 2012:
Volunteer now and avoid heartbreak later. After Hurricane Sandy, a bunch of people asked me how they could volunteer and help out. Well, if you want to get a jump on the process, volunteers from South Kingstown and Narragansett will be meeting at the Narragansett Community Center on Mumford Road at 6 p.m. These are the volunteers that staff the shelter at South Kingstown High School and other emergency shelters.
CELEBRATIONS! There are a couple of neat events going on tonight:
- South Kingstown High School is hosting a celebration of local food and agriculture from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Admission is $5, and for more info, click here.
- The Twenty40 Festivus Party is going down at the Pink Chair in North Kingstown at 5:30 p.m. Admission is $10, and for more info, click here.
- Ladies night at Silver Tide Jewelry is at 6 p.m. For more info, click here.
- And finally, Nancy Devaney will be doing a Power of Parents training session at the NHS PTO meeting at 7 p.m. For more info, click here. The PTO will also share the results of the second annual Mariner Marketplace.
“Figure skating is an unlikely Olympic event but its good television. It’s sort of a combination of gymnastics and ballet. A little sexy too, which doesn’t hurt.” – Andy Rooney. It’s not quite figure skating, but there is public skate today at the Boss Ice Arena from noon to 2 p.m. For rates and more information, click here.
Oh no! Maybe there seriously aren’t that many events today, given that it’s Saint Lucy's Day. As a result, our events calendar for today is a bit barren. If you’re having an event, please let us know in the comments. Also, make sure it isn’t left out in the future – Submit it via this link (as long as you’re logged into your Patch account).
Give the gift of food this holiday season. Children’s Dentistry of Wakefield is having a food drive from now until Dec. 19. For more info, click here.
