A city's generosity help couple to rebuild

October 25, 2011

WOONSOCKET — Maple cabinets, granite island, plush, multi-hued carpets with that brand-new smell.

Call it generosity: When the Jacobs’ 46-year-old cape was destroyed by fire last winter, a citywide network of supporters launched a prolonged and persistent fundraising campaign to help the couple rebuild bigger and better than ever.

Since that defeat and the three games before it, it has been nothing but smooth sailing for the Lady Broncos. After its latest victory, a 11-0 Senior Day rout of Davies Tech on Monday afternoon, Burrillville improved its league record to 14-1-0.
