Community rallies behind Philip Easton Landers, a beloved local artist and coach, as he fights spinal cancer
Plus: What Sold: 37 Newport County real estate sales, transactions
Today is Tuesday, November 23, and here’s a look at what’s up out there.
⚓️ What’s Up Newp kicked off its Fall Supporter Drive yesterday. We’re looking to add 150 new supporters in 30 days. The additional support will help fund a new position we are filling on our crew, a Newport Correspondent (with the hope of adding these in each community). On the first day, we added 33 supporters! Thank you to all who support us!
If you appreciate what we do, please consider becoming a one-time, monthly, or annual What’s Up Newp supporter today. We’re looking to add 117 more.
⚓️ Cancer is a disease that has touched the lives of many. Unfortunately, it has recently affected a young adult in the local community. Last June, WUN’s Tyler Bernadyn wrote an article about the HOPE mural that local artist Philip Easton Landers painted at the Fifth Element on Broadway. This design has become synonymous with the positive and uplifting nature that embodies who Phil is as a person and how he lives his life.
⚓️ Aquidneck Community Table is holding a special pre-Thanksgiving farmers market this Wednesday from 2 PM -5 PM at their new winter home, Stoneacre Garden in downtown Newport, where market stalls will be brimming with fresh and local ingredients from regional farmers and food vendors for the upcoming Thanksgiving feasts.
