WOONSOCKET â€“ 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.
â€śMr. Page, my teacher, came into the classroom and announced President Kennedy has just been shot. Iâ€™ll never forget it,â€ť Davis said while sitting with friends in the Kennedy Manor community room.
Davis, who is a member of her mother Margie Desrosiersâ€™ crochet group at Kennedy Manor, said times were different for kids back in the Cold War days than they are today.
WOONSOCKET â€“ City Clerk Andrea Bicki says she has learned that the incoming City Council wants to replace her â€“ the first confirmed news of a politically driven personnel change at City Hall since the election.
