‘Flash mob’ fills street to salute city teacher in fight with cancer

December 12, 2013

WOONSOCKET — When you are facing life’s greatest challenges, it helps to have people standing strongly behind you.

And that is what Tammy Lamberto Roy found she has Thursday evening when a “flash mob” of co-workers, friends, students and supporters showed up outside her home at 61 Mount St. Charles Ave. with all the love and warmth needed to push back the darkness of a freezing December night.

The crowd marching down the hill from the parking lots at Mount St. Charles Academy carried candles and signs stating boldly “We love you Tammy,” and “We believe in You.”

Woonsocket drops OT decision to Central Falls in opening game of Dennis Lynch hoop tournament

PAWTUCKET — Tom “Saar” Sorrentine had heard whispers that PCD was pretty good, which in turn had the veteran St. Raphael mentor quite concerned heading into Thursday’s opening semifinal of the Dennis M. Lynch Memorial Tournament.

Tom Horvat, Alex Minetti and the rest of the Knights did little to ease Sorrentine’s worries as a strong push to the finish line enabled PCD to knock off St. Raphael 57-51 and advance to the title match for the second straight year. The tide turned in the Knights’ favor thanks to an 11-0 spurt that saw them go from six points down to up 51-46 with 3:25 remaining.
