The EGHS Unified Volleyball team participated in the R.I. Special Olympics Project Unified Plunge at Goddard Park on Saturday, raising more than $3,700 for unified sports.

Fat Tuesday/Mardi Gras: For Christians, today is the last day before the season of Lent begins with Ash Wednesday and indulgence is mandatory. For non-Christians, it’s just a great excuse to eat donuts for breakfast or pancakes for supper … or both!

School Committee meeting: Supt. Mercurio will present possible cuts to the proposed $34.7 million 2015 budget, as requested by School Committee Chair David Green last week. A vote on the budget is on the agenda, which you’ll find here. At Cole Middle School library. 7 p.m.

Democratic Town Committee meeting: EG Dems meet once a month and all are welcome. Police Department Community Room at 7 p.m. For more information, contact Tom Plunkett at [email protected]

Ash Wednesday: It’s the first day of the Christian season of Lent, the 40 days of contemplation before Easter. Many Christians will get ashes on their forehead at church today as a sign of their mortality.
