WOONSOCKET â YWCA Northern Rhode Island, located at 514 Blackstone St., will merge with the faltering Central Falls-based YWCA of Greater Rhode Island in a deal expected to be finalized by March 1.
âThis is not a hostile take-over,â said Deborah Perry, president and CEO of YWCA Northern Rhode Island. âWeâre both in favor,â and the news is in the ambitious plans she has for the new YWCA Rhode Island.
PROVIDENCE (AP) â Former Rhode Island Gov. Joseph Garrahy has been remembered as a man who lived humbly and set an example for others.
The Rev. Marcel Taillon remembered Garrahy at a funeral Mass on Tuesday morning as a man of faith who rose from humble beginnings.
Taillon, the pastor at St. Thomas More Catholic Parish in Narragansett, delivered the homily at a service at the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul in Providence.
Garrahy died last week at a hospital in West Palm Beach, Fla. He was 81.
