A walk back in time
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.
