A number of new families from the neighborhood came to enjoy our autumn potluck on September 23rd. It felt more like summer with sunshine and blue skies. Light breezes had just enough strength to propel long sinuous bubbles that drifted for yards across the lawn. The youngest bubble maker was only three-years old! New and tasty dishes appeared for the potluck with the return of a crowd-pleasing favorite from before–lemon curd squares. A duo of up-and-coming face painters wowed the two community police officers in attendance as well as others with their artistic creations. A doe and her fawn made a special appearance as they came for their evening stroll in the park.
We started the sale of raffle tickets to raise money for new playground equipment. If you missed the potluck, you can still purchase tickets by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The drawing for winners will occur at the October 26th FoSG community meeting at the Pilgrim Senior Center. Prizes include gift certificates from Pawtuxet Village businesses including Fellini’s Pizzeria, O’Rourkes, Revolution, Schastea, and The Edge Fitness for Women.
You can make a donation for playground equipment online or by check at https://friendsofsaltergrove.org/donations/.
