Five Things: Girls Basketball At Home
Your guide for life in East Greenwich today, Feb 21.
Avenger Home Games: The Girls Basketball teams will be playing against Narragansett today, JV at 5:15 p.m. and Varsity at 7. For all Avenger action, check out the great Booster Club website here. Go Avengers!
Blood Drive: The Bloodmobile will be parked outside of Centreville Bank on Main Street Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The R.I. Blood Center lost nearly 600 donations during last week’s blizzard, so donations are extra-appreciated!
Post your Events and Announcements on EG Patch: If you have something you’d like to see on the EG Patch calendar, upload it by clicking here and finding the “Add an Event” tab on the right. The Events Calendar is my go-to spot for the daily Five Things column. If you want to be featured in Five Things, make sure you post your items on the calendar! If you have something you’d like to post as an Announcement, you can do that by clicking here. I routinely post Announcements to the EG Patch home page.
Vacation head’s up: I’m away (really!) through Sat., Feb. 23. Asst. Regional Editor Patrick Luce will be manning the site in my absence. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org. But if you have something that can wait for my return, please do wait. I will have my phone but will be trying to not respond to work emails!
Winter vacation week: February break can be a challenge. If you have a great winter vacation idea, please share it here.
Water Street closed: Water Street at the Barbara Tuft's Playground (Lion Street) will be closed 24 hours a day for approximately 5 weeks. No traffic will be able to pass because of the vertical trench sheeting that will be in the road. This construction is to replace the 90-year-old sewer main from the bottom of King Street to the Waste Water Treatment Facility. If you have any questions, contact the Department of Public Works at 886-8618.
