Looking for holiday events in Smithfield?
Lighting of the Green: Tonight, the Apple Blossom Garden Club is scheduled to host the annual Lighting of the Green at the common in Greenville, just off Rte. 44.
The local group purchased 1,600 ft. of new lights and set up a creche in advance of today's event, set to start at 5 pm.
Gift Collection: Also this weekend and through Dec. 7, the Smithfield Police Department is teaming up with businesses at the Crossing at Smithfield to collect holiday gifts for less fortunate children in Smithfield and throughout the state.
New and unwrapped toys, clothing, and gift cards can be dropped into any of the bins located at Crossing merchants, or brought to the police department.
