Five Things: Community Meal, 'Vintage Postcards' Book Reception
Your guide for life in East Greenwich today, Dec. 17.
'Vintage Postcards' book reception: The East Greenwich Historic Preservation Society introduces its latest publication, "Vintage Postcards of East Greenwich, R.I.," today from 3:30 to 5:30 pm. at the East Greenwich Free Library, 82 Peirce St. Light refreshments will be served. The 186-page, softcover book is a stroll down memory lane, filled with colored postcards dating from the early 20th century, of the Hill and Harbor districts, Main Street, the mills, schools and churchs of our town. The book will be for sale at the reception for $24.99 or it can be ordered from the Society by calling 401-826-0178. It is also available at Symposium Books.
Community meal: Once a month, Christ Community Kitchen takes place at St. Luke's Church (usually, but not always, the last Monday of the month). It's a community meal open to anyone interested in good food and fellowship. No religious affiliation is required – all are welcome. St. Luke's and EG United Methodist Church share in the cooking and serving duties, typically rotating every other month. Dinner tonight will be pork loin roast, mashed potatoes, appetizers, salad, Panera bread and homemade desserts, from 5 to 6 p.m.
Weather: Tut, tut, it looks like rain … today and at least part of tomorrow. No snow!
Patch’s ‘Deck the House’ contest: We’re looking for the most decorated houses in town to participate in the second annual Patch Deck the House Contest and so far EG’s got one house in the running. Let’s vote for Stanley’s house – click here! The overall winner brings $100,000 to their school district and up to $500 back on their electricity bill. Runners’ up get electricity money back too. If you’ve got a house all decked out for the holidays, upload a picture or video here. Or vote. If you have any questions, contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
EG Food Cupboard needs donations: People are hungry all year round, Chris and Steve Bartlett of the Food Cupboard remind us. Items especially needed are jars of jelly, baked beans, canned fruit, tuna, peanut butter, and cereals. The food cupboard is housed at St. Luke’s Church. You can leave food there during normal business hours.
