Thursday: Autumnfest, Mount St. Charles Walk, Contests, Things

The weekend is only two days away - check out these things to know:


Autumnfest Button - There's still a $100 Autumnfest prize unclaimed - #2752. On Monday, new winning numbers were drawn for the $200 and $100 prizes, which had gone unclaimed the previous week.

Yesterday, the holder of button #7143, Normand Carey of Woonsocket, claimed his $200 prize, leaving just the $100 prize unaccounted for. A new number will be drawn for the remaining prize on Monday at 4 p.m. if no winner steps forward. The winner must call WNRI at 401-769-6925 before then to claim the prize. 

Mount Walks Woonsocket - The entire student body of Mount Saint Charles Academy will walk around Woonsocket this morning starting at 8 a.m. to raise money for Mount’s ongoing classroom renovation initiative. In addition, 10 percent of the profits will benefit the Brother Michael Scholarship Fund. 

Students will head toward Wolny soccer field. They will be en route for the bike path, and will then continue towards the Manville Dam parking lot where they will turn around to make their journey back to Mount.  

No Budget Commission - The Woonsocket Budget Commission is skipping this week, so don't make the trip to City Hall this afternoon, unless you like hanging out there for its own sake or happen to work there.
