Celebrating Community Service on Valentine's Day

Oddly, the Olneyville Neighborhood Association doesn't have a website or blog, I think. But it is a remarkable group of people and they send me emails. My interview there was conducted by several of the board members...and I learned that one of them was my neighbor, living only two houses away from me...

This Community Defense Network is made up of people all over Rhode Island, and probably Massachusetts, et cet.

How nice of you to post this "Celebrating Community Service on Valentine's Day!"

I read that another area Valentine's Day event is actually taking place the next weekend, on Feb.21. It is the Vagina Monologues that were forbidden to be performed at Providence College. It will be performed in Providence, which will make college president, the performance-banner, happy.

Here is the link from the campus newspaper: http://media.www.thecowl.com/media/storage/paper493/news/2009/02/05/News/The-Vagina.Monologues.Prepare.For.Another.Year.Off.Campus-3615753.shtml
