MAIN MAN -- Beauparlant hopes Main St. block party kicks off resurgence of city

August 24, 2013

WOONSOCKET – The first house he ever bought as a real estate investment was the one he grew up in on Cass Avenue.

Albert G. Beauparlant Jr. did a little work on the property and sold it to his brother, nearly 30 years ago.

It was an auspicious beginning.

The self-employed real estate developer and member of the Woonsocket Redevelopment Agency says he’s been involved in hundreds of development projects since then, from the 1980s rehab of the landmark Longley Building on Main Street to the $6.2 million Conley’s Wharf in Providence.

CUMBERLAND — The last time Chris Magill ran in the “Yo” Raymond Memorial 5K, he was on the losing end of the closest finish in the race’s seven-year history.
In the 2011 event, Louis Raffetto of South Boston, Mass. edged the Cumberland native by a mere second, storming past Magill with less than a tenth of a mile to go to claim the thriller in a 16:39 time.
