5 THINGS: Toddlers, Beanstalks and Boatcakes

Kick the weekend off with a variety of fun events.

Here are the (more than) Five Things for Friday, August 10, 2012:

mmm, Fresh food! There is a farmers' market at Goddard State Park every Friday, starting at 9 a.m. and running until 1 p.m. For more info, click .

Are you steppin'? The Steppin' Out of the South Kingstown Senior Center meets every Friday at 9:30 a.m.

Aw, fun activities, for your toddler! Need to bring your toddler out of the house for a bit? Maury Loontjens Memorial Library in Narragansett is hosting at 10:30 a.m.

Aw, fun plays, for your kids! Need to bring your kids out of the house for a bit? Theatre by the Sea is hosting the Crabgrass Puppet Theatre of Jack and the Beanstalk at 10 a.m. and noon. Both performances are $10.

Take the ferry ovah! There is for Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce members at 1 p.m. on Block Island. The cost is $27 per adult, and $15.50 per child 12 and younger.

Book discussion that happens to take place in the afternoon, not book discussion about afternoons. The group at 2 p.m. at Peace Dale Library.

BLOOOOOD! Get your sugar levels up after giving blood by taking advantage of the 's proximity to Brickley's in Narragansett today. The fun starts at 3 p.m.

Not to be confused with the competing band Yachtpie. Boatcake at 6 p.m. at Gazebo Park in Narragansett, right by town beach, as part of the summer concert series.

Experience fine cinema! The Kingston Free Library film club meets at 7:30 p.m. to Brassed Off. It's a well-reviewed film that had Kobayashi from The Usual Suspects in it. (It's a British comedy though, just for the record.)

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.

I bet someone showed them the money – because they're the show me state – ha ha ha? On this day in 1821, Missouri was admitted as the 24th state.

How's Reggie Miller doing? Happy 46th birthday to John Starks!
