July 10: Be a Blogger
It's July 10, 2012, and here are your 5 Things to Know Today.
Be a Blogger: Have something to say? Want people to read it? Sign up to be a blogger on JohnstonPatch — and if your stuff is really good, we'll share it among our other sites in Rhode Island.
Nice Pattern: We're in for a few days of sunny skies and temps in the 80s this week. Overnight lows in the 60s. Next chance of rain looks like Saturday.
Passing: Visiting hours are scheduled for this afternoon for Jenna Jacques, a nine-year-old girl whose name is memorialized on the Pink Heals rescue truck. The family has an account at Citizens Bank for donations: Team Jenna, C/O Citizens Bank, 27 Algonquin St., Providence, RI 02907. Find out more on the Team Jenna Facebook page.
Library: At Mohr Library today:
- Babies and Books at 10:30 am. For birth to 3 years old with a grown-up.
- Dreams & Wishes at 2 pm, for ages 6 through 10. Learn what kind of genie you are.
Also, be sure to sign up your little readers (or yourself — there's an adult program, too) for Mohr's Summer Reading programs.
