Breadbox, beach fun & Jesse Liam: Five things to know in Burrillville this week

The Burrillville Conservation Commission held a guided hike of the Nipmuc River Trail over the weekend, led by Martha Thoman. The commission's next hike has been scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 14.


The Pascoag Utility District is offering a new advertising opportunity to local businesses and organizations in the upcoming 2024 Earth Day calendar. Each year, Burrillville students in grade K-5 design posters to help teach the community about ways to save electricity and recycle. Twelve of the designs are chosen for a calendar, which is given away for free to more than 400 Burrillville homes. The size of the ads will be 3 3/4 X 7/8 inch for $50, and proceeds will help to defray the cost of production.

Those interested should contact Desarae Dolan at (401) 567-1262 or by August 31.

Friday fun

The bi-weekly events this summer include games, snacks and entertainment, and are free to attend with beach entry.


Many town businesses will return from vacation this week, including Mapleville Farm, where the Summer Breadbox program has started. Enjoy the remaining seven weeks of fresh breads they have picked to highlight the summer season for $55.
