I will be volunteering at the annual Johnny Cake Festival in West Kingston Saturday and Sunday, October 19th and 20th from 10-5 each day on behalf of the RI Breast Cancer Coalition. The Festival has chosen the RI Breast Cancer Coalition as one of the charities they will be supporting through the sale of johnny cakes over the two day event We are so pleased to be the recipient of these donations and to be able to spread the word about what the RI Breast Cancer Coalition does for men and women in Rhode Island who have been affected by this disease.

I am a 21 year survivor of the disease and have been involved with the organization for many years. The RI Breast Cancer Coalition is an all volunteer organization and a 501c3 non-profit. RIBCC organized in 1992 and has provided resources, education and support to over 20K women and men since. They provide prescription assistance, wigs, prostheses, lymphedema sleeves, and advocate for women on issues like employment, finances, treatment costs. Our mission is to ensure that every woman in RI has access to quality health care, most especially mammography screening and treatment if cancer is diagnosed regardless of her ability to pay. Visit our web site for more information about the organization.

Stop by the festival and say hello and support your community!

A note from the Founder

A Letter to the Agents of Denelle: We are all so lucky to live in South County and are able to earn a living by being of service to our friends and neighbors. The scarecrows, home tours and farmers' markets all add so much to our quality of life. We are all able to walk our dogs on the beach and enjoy friendships with our fellow neighbors. What a beautiful time of year to enjoy a fall sail on the bay or some apple picking. It makes us all realize how much our wonderful state has to offer. So keep up the great work and let's all be grateful for all that we have... Ron Denelle

Yesterday I was lucky enough to attended the Ribbon-Cutting ceremony of the Anna Fascitelli Fitness and Wellness Center at the University of Rhode Island. My intention today was to write a long winded blog about what the new Fitness and Wellness Center is and will mean to the Students of URI but no one said it better than Paul Knott '14 from the URI Student Senate. I am personally proud to be a 1987 Graduate of this great University. Enjoy the video below.

Also Speaking were Thomas R. Dougan, VP for Student Affairs

Michael Fascitelli '78 -

And Peter Miniati, III '85 Treasurer and VP and Trust Officer for the Washington Trust Company
