Monday, Nov. 16

Virtual Seaview Trolley Trip:  The East Greenwich Historic Preservation Society is hosting historian Brian Wallin, who will take attendees for a ride on the Seaview Trolley, from East Greenwich to Narragansett Pier. From the early 1900s, this Toonerville Trolley-style electric transport carried products from nearby mills and farms; but most importantly, it brought day-trippers to South County for a day at the beach. Those happy trips ended when the Seaview went bankrupt in 1920, the victim of competition from railroads and private automobiles. Brian’s illustrated talk will highlight tales of the people and places along the route. This jaunt is free via Zoom and begins at 7:30 pm. Go to [email protected] to register for this virtual and delightful trip. You will receive Zoom contact information by email the day before the event.  

Thursday, Nov. 19

Avengers Booster Club Fundraiser at Finn’s: Dine in or take out at Finn’s Harborside between 5 and 10 p.m. and 20 percent of your bill will be donated to the Avengers Booster Club. So, have a “Finn-tastic” night and leave the cooking to Finn’s! Finn’s Harborside, 38 Water Street.

Electronic Waste Drop Off & Used Clothing Drive: The Town of East Greenwich is holding a two-fer event Saturday morning at the Transfer Station off Crompton Avenue.

From 8 a.m. to noon.
