Adopt-a-Spot planting days

Spend your lunch break helping the Office of Community Service plant flowers around the fountain in historic Eisenhower Park. The office's Adopt-a-Spot flowerbed will support the Washington Square Advisory Commission's efforts to restore Eisenhower Park and enhance Newport's beauty. Hop on the trolley and come donate an hour of your time to help create this garden.

Planting will take place from noon to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, July 7, Wednesday, July 8 and Thursday, July 9.
