Finally Friday Five: Costumes, Scouting For Food, Button Prize, Things
The weekend is nigh. Here are some things to keep in mind today:
Costume Contest Extended - Since most Halloween activities were postponed on the East Coast, we're extending the deadline for the national Halloween Costume Contest from Nov. 1 to Monday, Nov. 5.
So — Proud of your getup for Halloween this year? Did you toil long hours with makeup, needle and thread? You've got one day left in the Patch Halloween Costume Contest. Upload a photo of your costume for a chance to win $5,000 for our nationwide competition.
Scouting for Food - Tomorrow, members of Troop 2 OLQM, Pack 2 OLQM, Pack 6 St. Joseph's, and Crew 13 of All Saints Parish will be collecting the bags they dropped off for the 25th Annual Scouting for Food Drive, beginning at 9 a.m.
Autumnfest Button - The new Autumnfest Button winner has a shot at the $100 prize, if the owner of button #753 still has it and can call in to WNRI at 401-769 - 6925 before Tuesday. A re-drawing for unclaimed button prizes will be held after that.
Trash - Regular trash and recycling pickup is back on schedule following Hurricane Sandy. Yard waste pickup is still backed up - Wednesday and Thursday's pickup will happen today, and Friday's yard waste pickup will happen on Saturday. Got a question about all that? Call the DPW Solid Waste Division at (401) 767-8880.
