WOONSOCKET â€” YWCA Northern Rhode Island, located at 514 Blackstone St., will merge with the faltering Central Falls-based YWCA of Greater Rhode Island in a deal expected to be finalized by March 1.
â€śThis is not a hostile take-over,â€ť said Deborah Perry, president and CEO of YWCA Northern Rhode Island. â€śWeâ€™re both in favor,â€ť and the news is in the ambitious plans she has for the new YWCA Rhode Island.
PROVIDENCE (AP) â€” Former Rhode Island Gov. Joseph Garrahy has been remembered as a man who lived humbly and set an example for others.
The Rev. Marcel Taillon remembered Garrahy at a funeral Mass on Tuesday morning as a man of faith who rose from humble beginnings.
Taillon, the pastor at St. Thomas More Catholic Parish in Narragansett, delivered the homily at a service at the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul in Providence.
Garrahy died last week at a hospital in West Palm Beach, Fla. He was 81.
