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.

Isaac Carlson on The Rhode Show: Twelve-year-old Isaac Carlson was featured recently on The Rhode Show along with Miss Rhode Island, Kelsey Fournier. The topic of the spot was preparing healthy lunches for back to school. The two met through a nonprofit summer camp called Fit2Cook4Fits, created and directed by Karen Salvatore of North Kingstown. Isaac then went on to prepare a healthy trail mix snack. Congrats, Isaac!
