Women finally got the right to vote 100 years ago. You can join in a local celebration of this momentous event on Saturday, Oct. 17, at the corner of First Avenue and Cliff Street at 1 p.m. Bring signs to honor and encourage women’s votes – but no political signs please. And wear a face cover!

Cindy Wood Goes to Roger Williams Park
