Express everything you like. No word can hurt you. None. No idea can hurt you. Not being able to express an idea or a word will hurt you much more. As much as a bullet.

Game Night: Dungeons & Dragons part 2

They have wiped out an infestation fo kobolds, attempted to befriend a skunk, found great treasures, and landed in great peril… Haldor the fighter and Eleanor the cleric have tumbled into a trap, and face a glittering bronze dragon, leaving the rest of the party behind…

Civil War Presentation

Wednesday, June 14 @ 6:30 pm

Across Rhode Island, from communities both large and small, men answered the call to defend the Union from southern secessionists.  Their sacrifice in that titanic struggle between the states is known now as the American Civil War; it altered the national “manifest destiny”, provided freedom for those enslaved and altered the national character in ways still reverberating today.  Join us for a presentation by a historian from Battery B, 1st Rhode Island Light Artillery who will provide a 45 minute lecture with slides and artifacts that will provide you with the essence of what that sacrifice entailed for a Union soldier serving with a Rhode Island artillery battery.
