A walk back in time

Posted

Saturday was a washout, but Sunday rain held off until late afternoon and gave Wyman and St. Peter School students with the assistance of parents and some Veterans students the opportunity to stage the 18th annual walking tour of Pawtuxet Village. Along the way, those taking the tour got to meet Native Americans, shipbuilders, the militia, a judge, school children, grave diggers and historic families from the village all portrayed by the students. There were even a few hooligans caught stealing hogs. More than 100 people took tours on Sunday. “A good turnout,” in the words of volunteer Toni Andersen.

Too bad state government doesn't take notice of this tours and the hard work the kids put in the program.

Justanidiot is spot-on.

It's too bad state government didn't notice but I'm sure others from surrounding communities did. And when Warwick students do something significant like this, it makes Warwick attractive to outsiders.

New visitors become new homeowners reducing the tax needs on the rest of us and increasing the number of students in our schools.

Congrats to all the students and the teachers that guided them.
