Roofs cleared; school's on

WOONSOCKET – After a three-day operation to clear dangerously heavy snow loads from the rooftops of public schools, classes are set to resume Tuesday for the first time since last Thursday – weather permitting, of course.

Vermette's roof collapses

February 7, 2011

WOONSOCKET — The winter of 2011 claimed a city landmark Sunday as heavy snow and ice brought down the function room roof at Vermette’s Restaurant at 1347 Diamond Hill Road.
The collapse of the roof into a room once home to local wedding receptions, collations and holiday parties left one wall bulging outward into the business' parking lot at Diamond Hill Road and Mendon Road and another canted inward. The city's building inspector subsequently ordered the function room taken down as a precaution against further collapse.
