Save The Bay to hold volunteer Earth Day beach cleanups on April 21-22 and through all of April

 PROVIDENCE, RI – April 16, 2018 – In celebration of Earth Day on April 22, Save The Bay has organized several beach cleanups all over Rhode Island, giving individuals, families and groups many options for getting involved. “Cleanups are such a fun way to celebrate Earth Day. It feels great to do something hands-on to help the environment. And you can really see the difference when you are done,” said July Lewis, volunteer and internship manager at Save The Bay.

Earth Day Cleanups on April 21-22 are as follows:

Several additional cleanups are planned throughout the month of April, for volunteers who want to make a difference, but can’t help out on Earth Day. They are:

Save The Bay holds beach cleanups every year, from spring through fall. Last year on Earth Day, nearly 500 volunteers collected almost 8,000 pounds of trash and debris at shorelines all over Rhode Island. “People are so enthusiastic to join with their neighbors and make a visible difference in the health of their beaches. This is how we clean up the Bay — together, one piece of litter at a time,” Lewis said.

Twisted Networking Celebrates First Year With An April Party

PROVIDENCE — Capping off an incredible first year of connecting business people throughout the state, Twisted Networking will host their one-year anniversary event on Thursday, April 26, at the Regency Plaza, beginning at 6:00 P.M.

 

This event features interactive networking events to forge relationships between guests. Several people will receive awards for their efforts in getting Twisted Networking off the ground. They will also unveil their new website, www.twistednetworking.com.

 

Jevonya Allen, the brainchild of the Twisted Networking/Rhode Island event, said the concept fed off her personal experiences with various networking formats. Allen said some of the events she attended were structured, which she loved but, at times, were too stringent for her lifestyle. There were others that were fun, but were too relaxed for her liking, she added.

 

Twisted Networking is a fusion of the positive aspects of several networking event formats. This event is designed to be fun, informative, unique and a great use of time,” said Allen, who added there are similar events happening in Virginia, Florida and one coming soon to Massachusetts. “We have been getting a steady response from attendees from these events. We host monthly networking meetings. Here in Rhode Island, we have one in Providence at Brass Monkey and one at Jacky’s Galaxy in North Providence.”

 

Allen said there is some structure in how the night goes, but the response from guests has been positive. She noted that the events draw nearly 200 people from various industries and parts of the state. She added that being somewhat centrally located helps bring in different people and a chance to further their network.

 

The April soiree will also feature butler-style passed hors d’oeuvre’s, vendors, raffles including a 50/50 raffle and other activities. Allen said she is looking for raffle items, gift baskets and other donations from area merchants and individuals. She added that being somewhat centrally located helps bring in different people and a chance to expand their respective networks.

 

 

Tickets for this event are $20 each and may be purchased by contacting Jevonya Allen at 401-301-5938 or by e-mailing her at jsallen@gmail.com.

 

Anyone interested in learning more about the Twisted Networking monthly events, with the next event taking place on Tuesday, May 8, may contact Allen for more information.

Tri-Town Chamber of Commerce celebrates Moe’s Southwest Grill with a Ribbon Cutting.

We congratulate Moe’s Southwest Grill on the opening of their second location in Foxborough at Forbes Crossing. Supporting Moe’s at the event were State and Local Town officials as well as Tri-Town Chamber of Commerce members.   “The new location is bright and beautiful, the Southwest fair is amazing!  Kara Griffin, Executive Director of the Tri-Town Chamber of Commerce.

 

From the second you walk into a Moe’s, you’ll notice there’s something different. You actually feel welcomed. Ever since our employees at the first location in Atlanta, GA in the year 2000 shouted “Welcome to Moe’s!” – Which probably scared the bejesus out of those first guests – that phrase has embodied our entire culture. Everybody is welcome at Moe’s. Except, of course, fugitives.
