EG Food Cupboard needs donations: People are hungry all year round, Chris and Steve Bartlett of the Food Cupboard remind us. Items especially needed are jars of jelly, baked beans, canned fruit, tuna, peanut butter, and cereals. The food cupboard is housed at St. Luke’s Church. You can leave food there during normal business hours.

On New Year’s Day …
Second Annual Frozen Clam plunge: The Frozen Clam is a New Year's plunge to support Rhode Island Mentoring Partnership. The plunge will be held at 12 noon but feel free to get there a little early for mental preparation and to learn more about a fantastic organization. Spectators are welcome and donations will be accepted, or better yet, become a mentor. Last year was a blast! Check out the recap here: http://laidbackfitness.com/2012/01/03/the-frozen-clam-a-hot-start-to-a-new-year/ This year we are asking "clam dippers" to register prior to plunging.
