Five Things: Last Day Of Daylight Savings
Your guide for life in East Greenwich today, Nov. 3.
Scouting for Food pickup today! The Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts of Narragansett Council distributed food collection bags last Saturday and they will pick up the bags today, Nov. 3. Don't worry if you don't have the actual bag anymore. Any bag will do! Just leave it – with canned and dry goods only – outside your front door by 9 a.m. on Saturday. Most needed items are canned meats, soups, or stews, peanut butter, canned fruits and vegetables, beans, pasta, and pasta sauce. If it is more convenient, you may take your food donation to Walgreens.
Coastal Growers Winter Farmers Market: Today is the first day of the Winter Farmers Market in North Kingstown. Miss your Tallulah’s Tacos? You can pick some up at the winter market! You can also pick up produce, meat, baked goods and artisan goods. From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Lafayette Mill at 650 Ten Rod Road in North Kingstown.
Trash pickup: If your trash is usually picked up on Fridays, it will be picked up on Saturday. The remainder of the week will have a one-day delay. If you have storm debris, DPW asks you move it to the curb and they will pick it up as soon as they can. Yard waste pick up will resume next week and the Transfer Station will be open Saturday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., but town officials ask you to keep storm debris separate, since the town will not have to pay the tipping fee for its disposal.
Daylight Savings end tomorrow! That’s right – we all get an extra hour of sleep tomorrow morning when we “fall back.” So tonight at bedtime remember to set back your clocks!
East Greenwich Election Guide: Unsure where to vote? Want to know who's running for Town Council? What U.S. Congressional District are we in anyway? You'll find the answers to these questions (and so many more) right here!
Looking ahead to Sunday …
Ordination, Installation At Westminster Unitarian: The installation and ordination of Ellen Quaadgras, Westminster Unitarian Church's 17th minister will take place in the Parish House on Sunday at 3 p.m. All are welcome to attend this special occasion in the life of the church. If you are coming by calling the church office 401-884-5933.
St. Luke’s Celebration of New Ministry: Fr. Tim Rich has been rector at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church since July, but Bishop Geralyn Wolf will be on hand Sunday to celebrate more than just the arrival of a new rector. In her last official visit, the Bishop will mark the beginning of a new chapter in the life of St. Luke’s and the community of East Greenwich.
