30th Anniversary Celebration at George Hail Free Library






Thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate this special milestone of 30 years of preservation work and community building in the historic town of Warren, RI.  George Hail Free Library was the perfect venue for this elegant event and guests were able to tour the Charles Whipple Greene Museum.  The museum is open Wednesdays from 2 - 4 PM and houses a collection of historic artifacts, military, and maritime items including manuscripts related to Warren.  The evening also featured a slide show of thirty years of WPS preservation activities and memories.
