Five Things: School Committee, Newtown Events

Your guide for life in East Greenwich today, Dec. 18.

School Committee meeting: The meeting starts at 7 p.m. in the library at Cole Middle School

Senior Day at Orange Leaf: Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt at 1000 Division St. is hosting their second “Senior Day” event today from noon to 5 p.m. To spread some holiday cheer this season, they have invited older citizens to enjoy some frozen yogurt for 50 percent off. In addition, each senior will get discount cards for their next visit. All five Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt shops in Rhode Island and Massachusetts are participating.

Holiday Spotlights: EG Patch is featuring “Holiday Spotlights” up to Dec. 24, short articles highlighting a good gift idea you can buy in East Greenwich (or very nearby). To check out all the spotlights we’ve run so far, search "Holiday Spotlight." There’s still time to be spotlighted – send me an email describing the gift idea (it can be a good or a service) and at least one photo.

And …

Community Gathering Thursday: An opportunity to come together to celebrate our children, our community and each other, 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 Sunday: 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.
