Five Things: Spring, Used Clothing, Teens
Your guide for life in East Greenwich today, March 21.
Spring … one day late: It turns out spring arrived yesterday morning around 7 a.m. Perhaps you’ll excuse me for not recalling that fact in time for yesterday’s Five Things column. I was snow-blind.
Used Clothing Sale: Don't miss the Westminster Unitarian Church's semi-annual used clothing sale. Good used clothes, shoes, fancy wear, and some jewelry available at rock-bottom prices. Friday hours from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. On Saturday, it’s open from 9 a.m. to noon – and the price is just $5 a bag, filled to the brim with clothing of your choice.
Teen Center: The Teen Center has provided a great place to hang out on Friday evenings for decades now. They meet at the gym at Eldredge School but you don’t have to play basketball to enjoy the camaraderie. From 6 to 8 p.m.
On Saturday …

Troop 2 breakfast fundraiser: Troop 2 prides itself in offering meaningful, informative and fun trips for scouts and their families! Our next trip, the American Heritage Tour, will be all that and more. To help fund this trip, the troop is having a breakfast fundraiser at Dave's Bar and Grill in Warwick. The breakfast buffet offers a made to order omelet station along with scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, home fries, cereal, toast, bagels, fruit, pastries and of course coffee, tea and assorted juices!
