Wednesday, March 27
As Rhode Islanders make plans to celebrate the Easter holiday, the Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation is reminding residents that many of the prized, colorful favors that go hand-in-hand with the holiday are not recyclable.

Receive ashes this Ash Wednesday at one of these churches.
- VOLUNTEERS IN THE NEWS
Wednesday, February 13
Catholics and members of some Protestant denominations will display a visible sign of penance as they recognize Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent. Lent is a season of penance, reflection and fasting that "prepares us for Christ's Resurrection on Easter Sunday, through which we attain redemption," according to Catholic Online. The ashes are a symbol of penance for sin, and mark a period of 40 days of sacrifice to achieve sacramental absolution. Churches will be marking the sign of the cross on worshipers' foreheads in ashes resulting from the burning of palm fronds after last year's Palm Sunday. Looking for a church?

Small but eager crowds find success in soggy meadows
SAUNDERSTOWN – Neither steady rain nor driving wind were enough to deter 75 plucky youngsters and their families from a spring tradition Saturday morning at historic Casey Farm. Decked out in brightly colored rain gear and boots, they explored the barns, observed the chicks and other animals (no rabbits yet), and picked up hundreds of colored eggs from the fields as part of Casey Farm’s fifth annual Easter egg hunt. “It was a lot less than the 220 who had signed up,” observed Adam Lowe, the farm’s education coordinator. Farm staff had boiled and dyed an estimated thousand eggs. But the hunt served its purpose: providing a community event and promoting the farm’s summer camp and other programs, Lowe said. The hunt, scheduled for 10:30 a.m…
