It’s Friday, the genesis of your glorious 3 day holiday weekend and your wondering what to do with it. One thing is for sure, don’t waste it! Do some fun, meaningful and memorable things with your extra plus weekend.
I know, how about a movie? But not just any movie. Not even the kind of movie experience you may be used to. Today (Friday January 14) at 5:30pm the Providence Athenaeum is sponsoring Family Movie Night. A fun comedy for kids is being shown with pizza, ice cream and drinks provided to boot. All you have to do is R.S.V.P. by calling Lindsey at 401-421-6970. The cost is $5 and ages 6+ are welcome. You can find out the title of the movie when you call. For more information check out their website online at www.providenceathenaeum.org.
On Saturday January 15 there are a host things happening in the Providence area and abroad. Just to narrow down the selections I’ve chosen a couple you may like. Like the Rochambeau Branch of the Providence Public Libraries, has two great events going on. First is Creative Movement with Jump, which are choreography classes for children. The classes are age specific so call them or check out the specifics online at their website www.provcomlib.org. That program is scheduled for 9:45am to 12:15pm. Then there’s the Children’s Chess Club from 12-2pm. A fun time for any kids who are chess enthusiasts. The Rochambeau Branch is the place for games and competition.
On Sunday you can relax or make your way on over to the Providence Children’s Museum. They are having “Paint Play” this weekend with your paid admission. Children get to dip into their choice of colors and paint on pre-arranged areas using a variety of instruments. Paint Play is only going on for a designated amount of time, so be sure to call PCM to confirm the time.
Then finally on Monday, Martin Luther King Day, you have your choices of what to do, but to be honest with you the best thing you can do for you and yours on that specific day is to take a little time, pay homage and allow your family to learn what they may not know about one of the most influential and ethical men to ever walk the earth. Let dad take the family over to the Providence Children’s Museum for it’s special showcase honoring Dr. King’s legacy (check their website for more information at www.childrenmuseum.org). You can also check out the Institute for Nonviolence Martin Luther King Day Event at 11am on Monday at St. Michael’s Church in Providence.
Enjoy your holiday weekend.
