Five Things: Schools Delayed One Hour Today
Your guide for life in East Greenwich today, March 19.
Schools Delayed One Hour: Because of the – yet another!!! – snow, Supt. Victor Mercurio has delayed the start of school by one hour.
St. Joseph’s Day: Put away your green sweater – today you’re Italian! It’s the best excuse ever to eat that delicious cream-filled puff pastry known as zeppole. You’ll find them at any self-respecting Italian bakery (of which there are none in EG), as well as Felicia’s, which features a number of different flavors and makes LOTS of them.
Voter Registration Drive at EGHS: The R.I. Secretary of State’s office together with the E.G. Board of Canvassers is holding a voter registration drive at EGHS on Tuesday. Anyone who’s never registered or those who’ve changed their name or moved since they last voted are encouraged to sign up to vote. In order to register, you must be 18 years old by Nov. 4, 2014, a resident of Rhode Island and a U.S. citizen. Students who are at least 16 years old, but will not turn 18 by Election Day 2014, can pre-register to vote. If you miss the voter registration drive on Tuesday, you can find forms and answers to frequently asked questions on the R.I. Secretary of State’s website.
