        Autumnfest Seeks Nominations for 2019 Grand Marshall Selection

 

Woonsocket – Garrett Mancieri, Autumnfest General Chairman states that Autumnfest will be celebrating its 41st year in 2019.  The selection process for the 2019 Autumnfest Grand Marshall has begun and the Steering Committee are planning to announce its selection in May.  The Grand Marshall will be a part of all events at Autumnfest including riding in a vehicle of their choice in the first division of the parade on Columbus Day and also the very fun Grand Marshall Gala that will be held on September 28th, 2019 at Savini's Pomodoro Italian Kitchen & Bar. 

 

The criteria for the Autumnfest Grand Marshall apply to individual/individuals who have, without compensation, given of themselves above and beyond for the betterment of the community and in some way to Autumnfest.  In short, their efforts and contribution must have come from the heart.

 

General Chairman Garrett Mancieri says, "In my opinion, since we are the largest festival in Northern Rhode Island, being selected as the Grand Marshall for Autumnfest is the highest honor that you can achieve in this community.  Often times, these people are the doers, the people who go beyond the norm to help others, and the people who give support for others without seeking the credit or recognition."  He goes on to say, "Those are the people that we are seeking for this nomination to give an individual or individuals this prominent award which really comes from the community."  This is your chance to help the Autumnfest Steering Committee in their search for the next Grand Marshall.  Application submission deadline for Autumnfest Grand Marshall is April 30, 2019.

 

 The Grand Marshall’s selection form can be found on the Autumnfest Website (www.autumnfest.org) under Grand Marshall tab.  Please send in your nominations to Tyler Martin (This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Trump Campaign is taking a victory lap after the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's [[ MULL-er's ]] report. A campaign says "President Trump has been fully and completely exonerated yet again." Adding that an investigation should be opened against those who "instigated this sham investigation into President Trump." Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign concluded the Trump campaign did not collude with the Russians.       The final report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller [[ MULL-er ]] cites numerous attempts by President Trump to influence the Russia investigation. The report says the efforts were largely unsuccessful, mainly because people around the President declined to carry out orders. One of Trump's demands was to remove Mueller.        Former Vice President Joe Biden is at a rally in support of striking Stop & Shop workers in Southern New England. He will speak outside a store in Boston. Today is day eight of the walkout by 31-thousand employees at more than 240 stores in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island.        The National Enquirer is being sold for 100-million-dollars to the CEO of Hudson News.

Parent company American Media has faced criticism over the Enquirer's efforts to help President Trump, led by CEO David Pecker, a longtime friend of Trump.        The last surviving member of the Doolittle Raiders is being honored with a memorial service today.
