CHILLIN' & SKILLIN'

August 17, 2012

Governor Lincoln Chafee visits one of the Hasbro Summer Learning Initiative sites on Friday — the Connecting for Children and Families' Chillin' & Skillin' summer program, held at the Kevin Coleman Elementary School in Woonsocket. He witnessed a hands-on presentation by Save the Bay called "A Bay Experience" with live sea creatures such as starfish, crabs and perriwinkles. The governor was quite impressed, saying, ‘It was an important opportunity for youth to be able to learn and be outdoors at the same time. This program provides a great combination of both.’ Chafee attended with Anthony Maione, president and CEO of the United Way of R.I. Chillin' & Skillin' is one of 11 summer learning programs statewide that Hasbro and United Way of R.I. is supporting with $200,000 in grant money. Two others are in the Woonsocket area as well — Kids Club and NeighborWorks Blackstone River Valley.
