East Greenwich Historic Preservation Society meeting: At tonight’s meeting, two significant anniversaries will be celebrated – the town's 335th birthday and the 45th anniversary of the Preservation Society's founding in 1966. Long-term residents will share their memories of what East Greenwich was like in the 1950s and 1960s. It's open-mike night – come and reminisce with us. Also, Sarah Hudson, project assistant for "Protecting our Past," will talk about her studies in Institutional History at RIC where she is a candidate for a degree in Public History. Potluck supper at 6:30 p.m. and the program begins at 7:30. The event is free and open to the public. To RSVP contact Susan Curado at 884-4643 or email@example.com.
Open Jam Night: The Greenwich Hotel’s Open Jam session takes place every Monday night. All musicians are welcome and even non-musicians with rhythm can join in on the percussion instruments. This is Open Mic with a twist. It is a more relaxed format. You are encouraged to jump in and start playing. This makes for an interesting and unique night of music. A full PA set up with mics, cords, bass amp, electronic drum kit, bongos, djembe and other percussion instruments are available.
The Kabbalah of You: A journey of discovery, in which we will ask – and answer – the most fundamental question of all: Who is the mysterious being at the heart of what it is to be … you? The same Kabbalah that leads us up and beyond the highest heavens also leads deep within to explore the divine mystery of your soul. At West Bay Chabad, 3871 Post Road in Warwick, from 7:30 to 9 p.m.
