and a few other things to keep in mind today …
Big winning ticket sold at EG Farms: Tuesday night, the $150,154 Wild Money jackpot was hit at East Greenwich Farms at 360 Main St. The prize has yet to be claimed.
Fireworks and the Navy Band: We all loved the fireworks, but they came so fast on the heels of the Navy Pops Ensemble’s final piece that the band never quite got the shout out it deserved for its great performance. If you’d like to thank the Navy Band for their outstanding performance, you can send a letter to the Director, Navy Band Northeast, 347 Easton Street, Newport, R.I. 02841, or send an email to email@example.com.
