More than 500 visitors stopped by the Museum of Work & Culture on Labor Day to take advantage of its offer of free admission all-day Monday and also to participate in special programs, including a new one-act play and the opening of an exhibit on the Italian Workingmenâ€™s Club in the upstairs gallery, according to Raymond H. Bacon, museum co-manager with Anne Conway.
â€śIt went very, very well,â€ť Bacon said of the museumâ€™s 14th annual special opening for Labor Day. â€śI am so pleased that the IWC is celebrating its 85th Anniversary with an exhibit at the museum.â€ť
WOONSOCKET â€“ It is that time again â€” time to buy your Autumnfest button.
Tim Paul, chairman of the Autumnfest Steering Committee, was putting out that message on Friday, even as the city cleaned up from a big and successful Main Street Block Party celebrating the cityâ€™s 125th anniversary.
