lemonade... good news from newport  

june 2011

SallyAnne Santos

Welcome to the June pitcher of lemonade, it's a great time of year to live here in Newport. This issue will point you toward  great music, local fresh produce, inspiring artwork and heaps of activities on and off of the water-- so get out there and enjoy our little slice of paradise!

As the season heats up, so have the requests for placement in lemonade, here are a few guidelines to make it easy: 

  • EVENT LISTING: email a brief description and link to your event prior to the 20th of the month preceding the date on which it will be held. (For example, if your event is on 7/7, the submission deadline is 6/20.)
  • LEMON SQUEEZE: If you would like to have a product or service featured as a contest give-away, simply donate an item and receive a FREE mention and logo link in a future issue!
  • PITCHER SPONSORSHIP: If you are interested in sponsoring an entire issue of lemonade let's talk!
    Call Windlass Creative at 401/847-0112.
  • POUR YOUR OWN: share YOUR good news and event info on our facebook page for exposure to an audience of  "like"-minded lemon-heads ;-)  

Happy Summer (hooray!)
