Approximately 50 veterans from the Blackstone Valley gathered on Saturday for a photo session in advance of Friday's Veterans Day holiday.
Here is a roundup of Veteran's Day news and events in the Woonsocket area:
WOONSOCKET -- Volunteers from the Georges Dubois Veterans Exhibit at the Museum of Work and Culture are planning a Veteranâ€™s Day observance at 11 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 11, outside the Museum, which is located on Market Street.
In the case of inclement weather, the ceremony would be moved to the ITU Hall inside the Museum.
WOONSOCKET â€” If the October primary was a preview of how tomorrowâ€™s election will turn out, most of the drama will center on a handful of City Council candidates who might have a shot a finishing last.
Much of the suspense may focus on whether incumbent Councilwoman Stella Guerra Brien can improve her standing in the primary enough to knock her father-in-law, Albert G. Brien, from his seventh-place finish. Stella Brien finished ninth in the primary, but she was just 33 votes behind the elder Brien.
