Five Things: Skating Outdoors, Bra Trade In
Your guide for life in East Greenwich today, Jan. 4.
Outdoor Ice Skating: The town’s two rinks are open for skating – the plus from all the recent cold weather. One rink, pictured here, is downtown, at the basketball courts at the bottom of Eldredge Field. The other is at Shovlin Park, off Middle Road. You must bring your own skates and there’s no zamboni, but it’s free and glorious to be able to skate outdoors! Thanks, Rec Department!
Trash Collection delayed: If your trash is usually picked up on Tuesday, it will be picked up today. If it’s Wednesday, your trash will be picked up on Wednesday, and so on, for the rest of the week.
Christmas Tree disposal: The Town of East Greenwich will be picking up Christmas Trees (stripped of decorations and NOT in plastic bags) the week of Jan. 7.
Bra Trade In at Staci’s: Bring in any old, worn, or ill -fitting bra to Staci’s on Main Street and trade it in for a new one of your choice and receive $10 off – limit 4 – through Jan. 31. All donated bras will be sent to Bra Recycle, where they are distributed to women in hardship.
Winter Rec Program signup is now: The East Greenwich Parks & Recreation Department has a full slate of programs for the winter and spring months. Registration began in December, but many programs are still open. Registration forms and program information is available on the Town web site. Flyers are also available at the office, the Town Hall and the EG Free Library.
