The full agenda is here. Town Hall. 7 p.m.
Zeppoles: It’s St. Josesph’s Day, which means as a Rhode Islander, you are required to eat a zeppole today. OK, not required. But it’s a very nice excuse to indulge in the Italian cream-filled pastry.

World Down Syndrome Day: Why March 21? Because every person with Down syndrome has 3 copies of the 21st chromosome (i.e. trisomy 21). Why do I mention it? Well, because of my beautiful son James, who just happens to have Down syndrome. If you want to see a few more young people with Down syndrome (and to be inspired), check out this World Down Syndrome Day video.
