5 THINGS: Mel Brooks, Kicking Butt and Rotary-ing

Check out today's Five Things, which includes Mel Brooks' birthday, which is awesome.

Here are the (more than) Five Things for Thursday, June 28, 2012:

Kick butt for just 10 bucks. If you're reading this early this morning, you still have time to get fit! There will be for women at 6:30 a.m. at Curtis Corner Middle School. If you can't make it this week, they meet every Thursday.

Did you miss fine art this weekend? If you missed the fine arts festival this 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 .

Note: Not about old phones. The Rotary Club of Wakefield meets at Liliana’s Italian Restaurant at 12:15 p.m. today. For more information, click .

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 stephen.greenwell@patch.com or narragansett@patch.com.

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.

Lisa, stop playing that damn saxophone!” – A Great Yellow Man. On this day in 1846, the saxophone was patented.

Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you fall into an open sewer and die.” Happy 86th birthday to Mel Brooks, the man behind a slew of funny movies, the best of which is Blazing Saddles. And hey, he also produced the funny Max Brooks, the guy behind a bunch of zombie stuff.
