Cumberland/Lincoln Lions Club and Library present social consciousness symposia Dec. 7 CUMBERLAND – The Cumberland Public Library, 1464 Diamond Hill Road, and the Cumberland/Lincoln Lions Club are teaming up again on Saturday, Dec. 7, at 2 p.m., for a social consciousness symposia. Event, Marketing, & Donor Relations Coordinator Matt Giebert introduces attend- ees to the opportunities found through the Rhode Island Free Clinic, which is made up of volunteers, community partners and sup- porters throughout Rhode Island who share the belief that health care should be avail- able for all, regardless of income. Unlike a walk-in clinic, emergency room, or urgent care setting, the Clinic provides a medical home that includes coordinated health services comprised of primary care, labs and diagnostics, specialty care, pre- scription medications, follow-up visits, counseling and wellness programs that help uninsured adults get and stay healthy. For further information, contact Aaron Coutu, president of the Cumberland/ Lincoln Lions Club and Assistant Director of the library, at or 401-215-3279. IN BRIEF Wear solid, fluorescent orange during shotgun deer hunting season PROVIDENCE – The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management reminds all Rhode Islanders that, for safety reasons, they must wear solid, daylight fluorescent orange when in state management areas and undeveloped state parks during the shotgun deer hunting sea- son, which opens on Saturday, Dec. 7. All hunters, including archers, are required to wear 500 square inches of solid, daylight fluorescent orange clothing during the shotgun season. Waterfowl hunters hunting from a boat or blind, over water or field, and when done in conjunction with decoys are exempt from the orange requirements. Archers are exempt from wearing orange in areas of the state that are limited to hunting by archery only. Throughout all shotgun deer sea- sons, all other users of state manage- ment areas and designated unde- veloped state parks also must wear at least 500 square inches of solid, daylight fluorescent orange material. For all hunters and management area users, the orange clothing should include a hat and vest worn above the waist and visible in all directions. An orange vest that's 20 inches long by 25 inches wide has 500 square inches of surface area. The shotgun season for deer in Zone 1 runs from Saturday, Dec. 7, through Sunday, Dec. 22. The shot- gun season for deer in Zone 2 is from Saturday, Dec. 7, through Sunday, Dec. 15. From Thursday, Dec. 26, through Thursday, Jan. 2, 2020, hunt- ers may hunt only on private lands for antler-less deer in Zones 1 and 2. The statewide bag limit is two antlered deer, and no more than one antlered deer can be harvested in Zone 3. The bag limit for antler-less deer is three in Zone 1, and two antler-less deer in Zone 2 and Zone 3. The season for shotgun deer hunt- ing in Zone 4 (Block Island) will be open on select weekdays through Feb. 21, 2020, as published in the state's 2019-2020 Hunting and Trapping Abstract. Hunters should call the New Shoreham Police Department at 401- 466-3220 for check station informa- tion. For more information on DEM pro- grams and services, visit www.dem.
