BELLINGHAM â€“ New England Country Club is a hidden jewel among public golf courses in the Blackstone Valley.
â€śWeâ€™re located just on the edge of Woonsocket,â€ť said golf pro Mark Copithorne. â€śIn fact, part of our second hole is in Woonsocket, behind the Sears store on Diamond Hill Road.

The focus of the workshop was to provide information about the competitive funding opportunities just made available through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) under the new health reform law.
