Five Things: Pet Adoption, Greek Food, The Movie
Your guide for life in East Greenwich today, Sept. 9.
“Movie Under the Stars” tonight, really! Rain postponed the movie last night, but it’s on for tonight. Sponsored by the Town of East Greenwich, with support from the Main Street Association (MSA) of East Greenwich, and the East Greenwich Chamber of Commerce, the third annual “Movie Under the Stars” is “Jumanji,” starring Robin Williams, rated PG. Admission is free, and refreshments will be available on-site for purchase.
Adopt-a-Pet Open House: Animals are available for viewing and adoption today with the assistance of a dedicated East Greenwich Animal Protection League member. The open house takes place at Greenwich Bay Animal Hospital from 10:30 to 1 p.m. Individual appointments are also available.
St. Luke’s Kickoff Sunday: St. Luke's is holding Kickoff Sunday for church school and choir signups. All are welcome, and all are invited to brunch (free) after the 10 o'clock service. Services at 8 and 10 a.m.
St. Francis Sign-Up Weekend: After all the Masses today, St. Francis de Sales will host our Sign Up Weekend for Religious Education in the Parish Center. Households not currently registered in the parish are welcome to attend as well as those already participating in the program. Our First Communion and Confirmation preparation classes begin on September 16th and our intergenerational education program, Generations of Faith, begins October 12th. For more information, contact our Religious Education Office at 885 3639.
Tillinghast Pond hike: With 2,000 acres of protected forest, Tillinghast Pond Management Area offers serenity and natural beauty that rank among the best in southern New England. On this hike, we'll take in all the great views of the pond. But we'll also spend a little time talking about the property's active hayfields and a recent timber harvest. Both initiatives help demonstrate The Nature Conservancy's commitment to managing the property as part of a larger working landscape. The hike will be 2.5 miles long, combining the Logger's Trail and the Pond Trail. Other highlights on the route include a historic cemetery, a beaver dam, and an observation platform on the pond.
