Community Gathering: An opportunity to come together to celebrate our children, our community and each other and to help all of us to feel safe, connected and supported during a time of sadness, yet a season of joy. Sponsored by Citizens Who Care, the Town of East Greenwich, EG Public Schools, and Youth-to-Youth. From 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the auditorium at St. Luke’s Church.
Community Photo Op For Newtown: East Greenwich is coming together to show its support for Newtown, Conn., with a giant community photo op this Sunday, Dec. 23, at noon at EGHS's Carcieri Field. Bring family, friends and neighbors. This is an opportunity to express our solidarity with the people of Newtown and to bolster our own sense of community at the same time.

You can leave food there during normal business hours.
