From a previous email:

For those who are interested, we'll be heading out to dinner afterwards, throwing a party after that. For those who want to head out, there is a 4:45 train to Boston.

There is also going to be Waterfire on August 18th. For those of you who haven't heard of this, Waterfire is a great attraction where huge bonfires are lit all along the three rivers of downtown Providence. At nighttime it's quite the sight to see. Starts at around 8 pm. The last train out is at 10 PM.
