The Oaklawn Grange held their third annual Pasta Dinner this past weekend to raise funds for their Christmas Tree Lighting and Ceremony scheduled for Dec. 14 at the Gazebo and the Oaklawn Grange. On Dec. 14, members of the Oaklawn Grange will host an evening of fun and festivities for the community, free of charge. The evening will include a visit from Mayor Allan Fung, a visit from Santa and horse-drawn carriage hayrides throughout the neighborhood. BASICS will provide musical entertainment and there will also be craft stations and a collection of canned goods to benefit the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. During the Pasta Dinner, people were asked what they are grateful for, as the Thanksgiving season is upon us.
