Five Things: Town-School Budget Meeting
Your guide for life in East Greenwich today, Jan. 7.
School Committee/Town Council meeting: A “pre-budget” discussion is on the agenda … in other words, the budget discussions for Fiscal Year 2014 (which starts July 1) begin!
Weather: It’ll be in the 30s today but is supposed to be in the 40s during the day for the rest of the week. Goodbye snow.
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! With the newly warmer temperatures, it’s better to skate early or late in the day.
Christmas Tree disposal starts tomorrow: The Town of East Greenwich will be picking up Christmas Trees (stripped of decorations and NOT in plastic bags) the week of Jan. 7, on your regular trash pickup day.
We’re looking for a new Facebook cover page … and looking to you to help. Upload your winter scenes here. I’ll be collecting the pictures through Friday and then we can all vote on the one we like best.
