Thursday: Commission, Walkabout, Stories, Showers

Don't leave home without these things to know:


Budget Commission -The Budget Commission meets this afternoon at 3:30 p.m. after a scheduled 30-minute executive session (closed to the public). This week there's a lot on their agenda (see attached .pdf), including a discussion of an appeal from the School Committee presented by Budget Commission Counsel Edward Alves and an update on the closure of Fifth Avenue School by Superintendent Giovanna Donoyan.

Ranger Walkabout - The Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor will host a ranger walkabout at The Kelly House in Lincoln, RI, for a tour of Aston Village. Each Thursday, National Park Service Rangers offer a free program - a chance for you to explore part of the history or natural beauty of the valley. All Walkabout programs are free, and begin at 6:30 pm.

Written Word - Tonight at 7 p.m., the Woonsocket Harris Public Library hosts the Written Word Writer's Group, an outlet for adult writers of all leanings - poetry, journaling, prose, short story, sermon, script writing, puppets, comedy, etc. This is a very low-key group with no critiquing. All are welcome and there is no charge. Call 232-3307 or email LLWalk@aol.com for more information or to register.

Story/Craft Time - Today at 1:30 p.m., the Woonsocket Harris Public Library hosts a third and fourth-grade story and craft time.

Showers - Today the temp will be 81 degrees, with showers in the morning. Dress accordingly.

Hi, taxed2death - Under the state law that empowers a Budget Commission to take over municipal finances, the body is not bound by open meeting law. I'm not sure what the architects of the law thought was so burdensome about open meeting law, or if that part of it got much attention when the General Assembly was considering it.
