PAWTUCKET â€” It might seem like an unlikely place for a party, but the Lachapelle Funeral Home has been the scene of several lively and enjoyable post-Irene gatherings.
For three consecutive nights since the storm knocked out the neighborhood's power, Christine Lachapelle-Miller and her husband, Bill Miller, have hosted a large-scale cookout at the funeral home at 643 Main St. in Woodlawn. The couple and their four children also make their home above the family business, which was started by Christine's father, Robert Lachapelle, over 50 years ago.
