Ready...set...murder!  The Down        town Woonsocket Collaborative is excited to announce their next fundraising event, "Murder at the Museum".  It's 1955, Woonsocket has finally begun to recover from the massive flood that destroyed businesses, homes, and cemeteries.  The City has planned a dinner to thank those who helped in the cleanup efforts and to give the citizens of Woonsocket an evening to celebrate.  However, a gruesome discovery has cast a shadow on the festivities!  While re-interring the displaced Precious Blood cemetery, there was one body that could not be identified.  Is it the drifter who had become a menace to the City?  Maybe the rumored lover of the police chief's wife?  Whispers abound up and down Main Street over the identity of the deceased and just who would have used the flood to cover up their crime.

 

This is your chance to help solve the murder!  Clues will be available in local Main Street businesses that will lead to the name and role of the victim.  Clues are located at the Museum of Work & Culture, Woonsocket Historical Society, Ye Olde English, NY Lunch, Timeless Antiques, Main Street Cafe, Renaissance Tattoo Studio, Trendz, The Art Den, and Ciro's Tavern. 

 

The event will take place on Saturday May 19th, 2018.  A buffet dinner will be served by Savini's Pomodoro at 40 South Main Street (MillRace Event Space) at 6pm and then the event at 42 South Main Street (Museum of Work & Culture) which will start at 8pm.  Tickets will be $40 per person for both events or only $20 per person for entry at the Museum.  Guests will be able to speak to the suspects and witnesses at the event and asked to identify the murder suspect at the Museum with one lucky winner who will win a $150 gift card to Savini's Pomodoro.  Guests are encouraged to dress to impress in their favorite 40's and 50's attire. 

 

DWC Chairman Garrett Mancieri says, "An event like this is always a great time.  It is not only a fun night out in downtown Woonsocket, but it also encourages visitors to our local businesses to gather up the clues to help them solve the mystery.  We hope that you will buy tickets and join us for a great time out that should be a night to remember."  DWC is a 501c3 organization and tax advantages may apply for the purchase of tickets and sponsorships. 

 

Tickets must be purchased before the date and are available on SquareUp (https://squareup.com/store/downtownwoonsocketcollaborative).  Tickets can also be purchased in person at The Art Den at 285 Main Street.  Event sponsorships are available by contacting a DWC board member.  More information can be also be found on the Downtown Woonsocket Collaborative Facebook page, www.facebook.com/downtown02895

 

Please share this email with your family and friends.  Hope to see you there this Saturday!

The Special Counsel is submitting his final report of Russia interference in the 2016 election. Attorney General Bill Barr notified Congress that Robert Mueller [[ MULL-er ]] has finished his work and submitted the final report. No details have been released. Barr wrote in a letter to Congressional leaders that he might be able to brief them on the contents of the report as early as this weekend.        The White House is claiming it has not seen the Special Counsel's final report. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders says they have not seen the report and were not briefed on its contents. Mueller submitted a confidential report to Attorney General Bill Barr today. Sanders said the next steps are up to Barr. President Trump's lawyers said they're pleased Mueller's office has delivered its report. They added that Barr determines the "appropriate next steps."        Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is one of many Democrats calling for the Special Counsel report to be made public. Schumer remarked that the American people have a right to the truth. He added that Barr should make Mueller's report public without giving the White House a say in what's released.        Texas is suing over this week's massive fire in Deer Park. Attorney General Ken Paxton says Intercontinental Terminals Company violated the Texas Clear Air Act when flames broke out last Sunday at its Deer Park facility. Flames briefly rekindled today but have now been put out.        The Governor of Iowa is asking President Trump to declare flooding in that state a disaster and to set aside one-point-six billion dollars. Almost 60 counties in the state could request funds because of the flooding that heavily damaged agricultural areas.        Saturday's Powerball jackpot should be the fourth largest in the drawing's history. It is expected to reach 625 million dollars after no one won on Wednesday. There hasn't been a Powerball winner since January.
