5 THINGS: Meetings, Clooney and Grapes

It’s Monday! Start the week off right!

Here are the (more than) Five Things for Monday, May 6, 2013:

“Happiness and moral duty are inseparably connected.” – George Washington. Here are today’s government meetings:

  • The Narragansett 125th Anniversary Planning Committee meets at 3 p.m.
  • The Narragansett Finance Committee meets at 5:30 p.m.
  • RIDOT is having an informational meeting about High Street in South Kingstown at 6 p.m.
  • The Narragansett Town Council meets at 7:30 p.m. There is an executive session at 6:30 p.m.

Mmm, delicious vegetables and produce! Goose Pond Farm of West Kingston is offering community supported agriculture accounts from this season to Dec. 31. For more info, click here.

With Kentucky now in the rear view mirror, register for a fishing derby! The South Kingstown Parks and Recreation Department is hosting its second annual fishing derby on Friday, May 10. They’re asking folks to pre-register for it though. For more info, click here.

Has the time or date or details of one of your events changed? If you posted the event yourself on our site, then remember – You can always change the details if you’re logged into your Patch account. Failing that, leave a comment on the item in question! The issue is that lately, people have been e-mailing me, and depending on the time of the day, it can take me anywhere from 30 minutes or 30 hours to get to the item, unfortunately. As a result, I encourage you all to be as proactive as possible!

Oh no! Maybe there seriously aren’t that many events today, given that it’s International No Diet 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).

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.

It is not a book about winemaking. On this day in 1940, John Steinbeck was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for The Grapes of Wrath.

You’re that old??? Happy 52nd birthday to George Clooney!
