Five Things: Pumpkins, Bells, Pets
Your guide for life in East Greenwich today, Oct. 28.
Pumpkin sale for a good cause: That pumpkin patch in front of the EG United Methodist Church on South County Trail isn’t just a joyful scene (those it is that in spades!). Proceeds will benefit Janice Wray and her family. Wray, an East Greenwich resident and URI nursing student, suffered serious injury in a car accident in April which left her paralyzed and in a wheelchair. The stand is 11 to 5 p.m.
Main Street Music Guitar Exhibition: Main Street Music is proud to announce the first annual Main Street Music Fall Guitar Exhibition, a display of some of the area's finest electric guitars and acoustic instruments. Join them at Main Street Music, 4 King St., today. Prizes will be awarded in categories including Excellence in Design, Craftsman's Award, and Best Presentation. A cash prize will go to Best in Show. The instruments will remain on display at Main Street Music under lock and key for the weekend.
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.
Grief Support: This group meets in the Christ Church office condo on Sunday afternoons and is for anyone who has suffered the loss of a loved one. Each week there is a video which covers different topics pertinent to those who are grieving. Following the video there is time to discuss the contents with others in the group. Sundays from 2 to 4 p.m. It is a safe and welcoming environment. For more information, contact the church at 884-8632.
Halloween & All Saints Concert at St. Luke's: Celebrate Halloween with music. The Jubilate Ringers bell choir and the choirs of St. Luke’s will perform in costume at the church, 99 Peirce St. All are welcome. Bring a non-perishable food item for local food pantries. Handicap accessible with ample parking. At 4 p.m.
Looking ahead ...
Hanaford Pasta Night cancelled: The Hanaford Pasta Night and Halloween Fun event scheduled for Monday night has been cancelled due to the impending storm. Refunds will be made to those who purchased advance tickets, and they hope to reschedule Pasta Night for late winter or early spring.
