NARRAGANSETTâ€”The 35th Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra is coming to the wave-struck shore of Narragansett Town Beach. Tonight at 8 p.m., residents will be able to enjoy the sounds of violins, cellos, and other instruments carrying through the evening air.
The event is sponsored by Citizenâ€™s Bank and admission is free, although the town asks that attendees give donations if at all possible. Those who come to see the event are also asked to arrive early as space on the beach is limited.

NORTH KINGSTOWN â€“ Wickford Flowers, formerly a venerable town fixture owned by the Greene family, is undergoing a transformation.
According to owner Tim Schartner, the operation, in business for a half-century, has phased out cut-flowers, transferring that service to Blossom Florist, in East Greenwich, another Schartner enterprise.
