WOONSOCKET â€“ Autumnfest Parade coordinators Linda Plays and Tina Go were found helping out at the Autumnfest fundraiser at the Italian Workingmenâ€™s Club on Diamond Hill Road Thursday night but that wasnâ€™t keeping them from final planning for the 10-Division Parade line-up for Monday, Oct. 14.
Most of their work was already done but, as Plays explained, area bands and parade marchers will be signing up right to the kick off of the 35th Annual Autumnfest weekend.
Even on the phone, the unbridled enthusiasm in Tyrone Naredâ€™s voice was readily apparent.
A new basketball season on foreign soil beckons for this Woonsocket native, and judging by the synopsis Nared provided mere hours before embarking on a near 15-hour flight that would take him to his roundball address for the next several months, the outlook appears bright.
