Our event – Remembering the Great New England Hurricane of 1938 – 80th Anniversary – on September 21, 2018, was popular beyond our wildest dreams. The estimate was that about 300 people attended, but we could only accommodate 206 in the auditorium, with our speaker, David Robinson, doing double-duty, coming in early and giving two talks. Many people said “it is a good problem to have.” But to those we had to turn away due to fire laws, we apologize.
The good news is that the Rhode Island Judiciary was so impressed with our photographic exhibit that they asked us to present it at the Washington County Courthouse through February 2019. So we went to work setting about rehanging the exhibit, and it is now up for you to see at ~~
J. Howard McGrath Judicial Complex
(Washington County Courthouse)
4800 Tower Hill Road (Route 1)
Wakefield, RI 02879
Monday – Friday, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm – through February 28, 2019
FYI, all visitors to the Judicial Complex must go through a security scanner – similar to those at airports. This display is free and open to the public.
Many thanks to our board member, Donna Rodgers, who researched and organized this photograph presentation, along the information, and the many volunteers who helped in various ways!
