5 THINGS: Firefighter Memorial Ceremony Today!

There is a firefighter memorial in South Kingstown, and more, in today’s Five Things.

Here are the (more than) Five Things for Sunday, September 23, 2012:

Memorial ceremony today for firefighters. The South Kingstown Firefighters Memorial Ceremony starts at noon today. For more info, click here.

Rally for open space! There will be a rally for open space, held by the South Kingstown Land Trust, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. The event is on Matunuck Beach Road and will feature two live bands, a wine tasting and a bonfire.

Music – good times. If you want even more music, the URI Fine Arts Center Concert Hall is also hosting a concert at 3 p.m. Admission is $5 for students, $10 for the general public. URI wind faculty artists will be playing, joined by their colleagues from Rhode Island College.

Not literally selling insects, thankfully. The General Stanton flea market in Charlestown begins at 8 a.m.

More than just fish! There is a farmers’ market at 9 a.m. at Fisherman’s Memorial State Park in Narragansett.

Work on your backhand, your serve, your smashing at the net… There is drop-in tennis at the courts at Broad Rock Middle School starting at 9 a.m. The cost is just $3.

Blood! There is a blood drive from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at New Life Assembly Church in Wakefield.

Oh no! Maybe there seriously aren’t that many events today, given that it’s Teacher’s Day in Brunei. 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).

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!

That princess is always in another god damn castle though. On this day in 1889, Nintendo was founded in Japan. It started out as a trading card company, before branching into arcade and video games. (For an awesome book all about Nintendo, check out Game Over by David Sheff, which is also widely available at most libraries.)

Tramps like the Boss, baby they were born to run – ha ha ha, I’m so clever! Happy 63rd birthday to Bruce Springsteen!
