AUTUMNFEST VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

 

Woonsocket - Autumnfest Steering Committee needs people to volunteer their talents so Autumnfest will once again be a success.  The Autumnfest Celebration is held every Columbus Day Weekend at World War II Veteran’s Memorial Park in Woonsocket, RI.  Columbus Day Weekend is October 7, 8 & 9.

 

Volunteers are and have always been the back bone of Autumnfest.  Without the efforts of countless volunteers working behind the scenes, Autumnfest cannot be the incredible success it is.

 

Here is your chance to be part of this great festival.  All skills are needed.  Young, old, handi-capable, it does not matter, Autumnfest can use you. Youth organizations are encouraged to volunteer as well.

 

If interested or for more information, please contact Autumnfest Volunteer Coordinator, Tony Gabriele at (401)309-1028 or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

The FAA is ordering fan blade inspections on common airplane engines after one exploded and killed a woman on a Southwest Airlines flight Tuesday. The in-flight explosion blew out a window and killed a passenger who was pulled partway out of the airplane. The FAA announcement late yesterday comes nearly a year after the company that built the engine recommended additional inspections.        President Trump will be leaving West Palm Beach to visit Key West, Florida today. His two-hour visit will include a tour of Naval Air Station Key West-Truman Annex on Boca Chica Key. In addition, the President and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen [[ KIRST-jen ]]Nielsen will be briefed on the activities of an interagency drug task force.        Possible charges in the death of Prince could be filed today. Carver County, Minnesota Attorney Mark Metz will announce his decision soon on whether to charge anyone in the musician's death. The announcement comes two years after the music icon's body was found in an elevator at his Paisley Park estate. Prince died of a massive overdose of fentanyl in April of 2016.        A Celebration of Life for former First Lady Barbara Bush will take place in Houston this evening. The gathering begins tonight outside City Hall. The mayor's office says the event will feature comments and prayers from multiple faith leaders, the reading of a poem, and other tributes. She passed away at the age of 92.        There's a new Cuban president, and his name isn't Castro. Miguel Diaz-Canel was named president today, one day after a vote in the country's National Assembly. It's the first time in almost 60 years that a Castro isn't leading the country. Diaz-Canel was selected as the unopposed candidate to replace Raul Castro, brother of the late Fidel Castro.        Senator Bernie Sanders says Cardi B is right when it comes to social security. The "Bodak Yellow" rapper said in a "GQ" interview last week former president Franklin Delano Roosevelt was "the real 'Make America Great Again'" because he created Social Security. The Vermont Independent and former presidential candidate said on Twitter yesterday that he agrees with her, and that the federal insurance program needs to be strengthened in order to make America great.
