Scavage through Cumberland’s varied history

March 7, 2014

CUMBERLAND – When your town has more than 300 years of history to tell, it certainly has plenty of locations to make a Historical Scavenger Hunt fun and thought-provoking.

At least that is what Michael Crawley, Parks & Recreation director, and Arlene Nunn, Parks & Recreation clerk, intended when they came up with the idea of holding their first historical hunt beginning this afternoon and running through March 30.

March 7, 2014

The cheapest lunch in town is going bistro.

Actually, it’s been going that way for a while, says Larry Grimaldi of the R.I. Department of Elderly Affairs.

The biggest kitchens of the state’s Senior Nutrition Program have slowly been tweaking their menus to cater to the more sophisticated, health-conscious tastes of baby boomers, the fastest-aging segment of the population.

“The senior center isn’t just a place you go to have lunch and play bingo,” says Grimaldi. “That concept is long gone.”
