Invader Zim

Zim dreams of greatness. Unfortunately, though, he’s hopelessly inept as a space invader. Desperate to be rid of the annoying Zim, his planet’s leaders send him on a mission to infiltrate Earth, providing him with leftover, cobbled-together equipment. To their consternation, Zim succeeds in setting up a base on Earth and infiltrating human culture, posing as a human child as he plots the planet’s downfall. Only Zim’s archnemesis, Dib, recognizes that Zim is an alien, and of course, nobody believes Dib’s claims.

Annual Basketball Tournament on 8/13 with a rain date of 8/14 from 9 am to Noon.

As August approaches we are getting ready for the PYO Annual Basketball Tournament on 8/13 with a rain date of 8/14 from 9 am to Noon.  Any island child 18 or under are welcome to play.  The groups will be divided by age.  This year there will be a $5 dollar entrance fee.  This cost helps offset the purchase of the t-shirts and snacks for the tournament.  We are asking anyone who would like to participate to pre-register so we have enough t-shirts.  Please  email PYO1018@gmail.com with your child’s name, age, and t-shirt size if they would like to play.  You can pay by either cash or check beforehand by dropping it off to Steph Jenness or on the day of the event. If you have any questions please reach out to us.  We will be happy to answer them.  Thanks in advance and we look forward to seeing you. If you have questions please reach out to us.


PYO Events


The mission of the PYO (Prudence Youth Organization) is to give back to the island community, be involved in PIA functions and to raise money to fund some of our own fun trips and activities! During the summer you can find us behind the snack shack selling food and refreshments at Wednesday Movie Night and Friday bingo. Read more.



Friday night BINGO is BACK!!! Bingo will run on Friday nights at 8:00pm through September 10 under the current RI Covid-19 restrictions. This means fully vaccinated members do not have to where a mask; unvaccinated members do have to wear their mask.

To help speed things up at the door and to assure you a spot at Bingo, you are encouraged to use our BINGO RESERVATION FORM.
