Five Things: Primary Day, 9/11 Anniversary

Your guide for life in East Greenwich today, Sept. 11.

Anniversary: The terror attacks of Sept. 11 took place 11 years ago today. Here are links to couple of stories here and here we ran last year about people in East Greenwich who were affected by the tragedy. Do you have a story to tell about September 11? Please let me know: elizabeth.mcnamara@patch.com.

Primary Day! It’s here, the first of a two-step process known as American democracy. You can vote, or you can sit on the sidelines and let others choose for you. If you aren’t registered, you can still register for the general election on Nov. 6. Here’s a link to start that process.

Girl Scouting is open to all girls from kindergarten through 12th grade, serving girls in the E.G., Rocky Hill, Cowesett and Potowomut areas. Women of all ages are encouraged to inquire about volunteering as troop leaders, as well. More information can be found at www.gsri.org.
