A Plastic Ocean

The documentary feature film A Plastic Ocean will be show at the Assembly Theatre on Friday, July 19 starting at 7 p.m. The film was created to promote awareness, and has won 14 plus film festival awards. The showing of the 100-minute long movie will be free, but cash donations are welcomed.

Assembly of Food Trucks – delayed

PVD Food Trucks return to the Assembly Theatre on Sunday, but the event, which was originally scheduled to begin at 3 p.m., has been delayed until 5 p.m. due to the excessive heat expected this weekend.

Starting at 5, residents are invited to eat from some of the best food trucks Rhode Island has to offer, enjoy live music and visit the beer tent. Events normally end at 7 p.m., but will remain open this Sunday until 8:30 p.m.

Admission is free, but donations to the The Assembly Theatre will be accepted.

Stay cool

NRI NOW reminds you that whatever you do on this hot weekend, take it easy and try to stay cool. Check on elderly neighbors and remember to make sure pets have plenty of fresh, cold water. The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for our area, and information about the town’s cooling stations can be found here.
