WOONSOCKET â€“ Lecture Room A is located a screen pass away from the main entrance of the cityâ€™s public high school.
On this particular November afternoon, the activity inside this theater-esque setting features a business tone. Upon veering off the corridor and through the door, you are greeted by a handful of Woonsocket High football players. They are huddled around a square-shaped table, some with textbooks lying flat on the surface while others elect to rest such important reading material in their laps.
NORTH SMITHFIELD â€“ Life is much calmer, less harried, nowadays for C.J. Dandeneau.
For weeks, he admitted being stressed out about which school to choose for his higher education, but no more. On Wednesday, Nov. 13, he signed a National Letter of Intent to attend the University of Connecticut at Storrs; it will be there that he not only will labor in his eventual academic field of choice, but also represent the Huskies' baseball program on a scholarship.
WOONSOCKET â€“ The peak of the holiday season is nearly here, and with it, the annual Holiday Stroll on Main Street Dec. 11.
The event will dress up Main Street with holiday lights and decorations as part of the annual tree lighting and arrival of Santa Claus at his house in the mini-park near Harris Hall.
The tree lighting and Santaâ€™s arrival will be held at approximately 5 p.m., and most people will start arriving for a good viewing spot around 4:30 p.m., according to Linda S. Plays of the cityâ€™s Department of Human Services and the Main Street/Riverside Initiative.
