WHAT: The University of Rhode Island’s 10th annual Rhody the Ram Yard Sale has been postponed from Saturday, June 8 to Sunday, June 9 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Heavy rain from tropical storm Andrea forced organizers to switch to Sunday. All proceeds go to the Rhody the Ram endowment, which provides scholarships to URI students who play the role of the Rhody mascot. As the yard sale enters its 10th year, the endowment has more than $40,000. It is the only form of support given to the student mascots, who spend countless hours annually at campus and alumni events, athletic contests, and community functions. Recipients must be at least a sophomore and in good academic standing.
WHERE: Keaney Gymnasium Parking lot, Keaney Road, URI Kingston Campus.
