Golf Tournament Fundraiser

On May 12th we will be holding the first annual Craig Feeney Golf Tournament at Foster Country Club. Craig was a firefighter for over thirty years. As a teenager he volunteered at Hope Jackson station in Scituate after which he was stationed in Exeter. Finally joining the ranks in the Cranston fire department in 1995 where he served for eighteen years. At his Alma Mata, Scituate High School, Craig was responsible for the resurgence of football in 2004 and was the assistant football coach for nine years. Sadly, Craig passed away after a courageous battle with cancer in 2013 at the young age of forty eight. This year we are holding this golf tournament to raise money for a scholarship in Craig’s name that will be awarded to a worthy student. A hallmark of Craig’s personality was helping others and our goal is to continue a scholarship in his name for years to come that will continue to help students realize there potential.

RI Foundation to Visit Scituate April 12th 6PM

The Rhode Island Foundation recently launched Together RI – a new initiative open to all Rhode Islanders and designed to create space for folks to be heard, to listen, to reconnect, and to promote civic and civil dialogue.

Together RI is a series of 20 neighborly get-togethers that began on March 22 and ends on May 5. We’ve had seven sessions so far, and the response to them has been very encouraging. Rhode Islanders are participating alongside their neighbors, strangers, and friends – sharing a family-style meal and talking face-to-face at schools, community centers and other places that are well known and accessible. Each session is free and open to the public.

We would love for you to join one (or more) of the Together RI conversations in your personal capacity, and would like to ask for your help spreading the word about this opportunity to your colleagues, friends, clients and constituents, and any other Rhode Islanders that you think might be interested in participating.

In fact, next week we will be at Scituate Senior High School on Thursday, April 12 at 6PM.

Please consider sharing a link to TogetherRI.org on social media, via an email blast, or by printing downloadable posters from the website and posting them at your convenience (to access those scroll all the way to the bottom of the Together RI site, they are organized geographically).

The website provides information on each Together RI date, time, and location. Registration is not required but is accepted via the links provided.

Each and every Rhode Islander has a role to play in ensuring our collective success. Together RI will give us an opportunity to find out more about what that means – person to person – and how we might all work together to achieve it. These conversations will be a neutral place for dialogue on topics that are critical to our common future, and a place where we hope the recent tendency toward divisiveness and polarization will be left at the door.

The Foundation’s role will be to provide the platform, and the meal, and then step back and listen carefully. Independent professional facilitators will guide the sessions and University of Rhode Island researchers will synthesize and help us share the results. We are committed to sharing anonymous, aggregated results broadly and without bias and hope that participants will meet someone new and will leave knowing that their voice was heard.

Thank you for your support, and please feel free to be in touch with any questions.
