Your guide for life in East Greenwich today, March 9.
Open House at Scribe: EG’s calligraphy goddess, Jane Parillo, has new digs (at 514 Main St.) and she’s showing them off today between 1 and 4 p.m. She hasn’t moved far – just a couple blocks – but her new space, shared with B & H Framing, offers more visibility. Stop on by!
St. Thomas Boys Choir concert: One of the premier boys choirs in the world – the St. Thomas Church Boys Choir of New York City – will be performing at St. Luke’s Saturday afternoon at 4. Admission is free but donations are accepted. A reception will follow.
Cabaret, a celebration of beloved EG teacher Ric Saborio: On Friday and Saturday night, the East Greenwich school community is coming together to present a Cabaret of music, song, entertainment “celebrating our beloved EG teacher Ric Saborio.” Saborio, a teacher at Eldredge (but who taught at Hanaford for many years), was diagnosed with a brain tumor last summer. Come see your classmates, neighbors, and friends perform on the stage at Cole Middle School. Tickets, $5, are available at the door. Show time both nights is 7 p.m.
Story Hour at Symposium Books: Children (and their adults) are invited to Story Hour at Symposium Books . Every week they pick a new story and read it to the kids with animal crackers and fun. Favorite stories are "No Matter What" and "Jungle Explorer." Come early and help pick the story, and better yet, there is a 10 percent additional discount on everything in the store during story hour! 11:30 a.m.

On Sunday …
Daylight Savings Time begins ... can spring be far behind? It's a good news–bad news kind of thing – we gain more daylight, but lose an hour of sleep as we turn our clocks forward one hour.
