Woonsocket's 125th: City plans celebration to mark anniversary

May 22, 2013

WOONSOCKET – There is no question the city has been in a struggle to survive fiscally in recent months but Mayor Leo T. Fontaine said Wednesday the upcoming 125th anniversary of the city’s incorporation should still be a time for city residents to recall all the things that make it great.

And to that end, a group of more than 100 volunteers from city organizations, businesses, and committed residents is now working on a Main Street block party everyone involved hopes will equal or exceed the celebration of the city’s 100th Anniversary in 1988.
