November 21, 2013

WOONSOCKET – She lives at Kennedy Manor today on Clinton Street, but on Nov. 22, 1963, Sandra Davis, 61, had been in school in her sixth-grade classroom at the Fifth Avenue Elementary School in Fairmount.

“Mr. Page, my teacher, came into the classroom and announced President Kennedy has just been shot. I’ll never forget it,” Davis said while sitting with friends in the Kennedy Manor community room.

Davis, who is a member of her mother Margie Desrosiers’ crochet group at Kennedy Manor, said times were different for kids back in the Cold War days than they are today.
