BLACKSTONE â The Blackstone-Millville Chapter of the National Honor Society held its seventh annual âEmpty Bowls Projectâ dinner recently in the high school cafeteria.
The room was set-up to look like a soup kitchen where soup, bread and desserts were served. Each of the 33 NHS members was required to sell tickets to the community, while faculty and staff members from the five schools in Blackstone and Millville bought tickets from designated faculty.
NORTH SMITHFIELD â Work on the new Aldi supermarket at Dowling Village is wrapping up and Town Administrator Paulette Hamilton said on Friday plans are in the works for the storeâs grand opening the morning of April 4.
Hamilton has been invited to the storeâs ribbon-cutting ceremony that morning and noted there will be grand opening giveaways and other activities at the store.
âWe are very excited about that; the only other Aldi's I am aware of in Rhode Island is in Providence,â she said of the Germany-based supermarket chainâs arrival in the Blackstone Valley.
BLACKSTONE â Never give up.
