The Northern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce is pleased and honored to be a partner with the Pawtucket Foundation &
Pawtucket's 20/20 Development Vision
in focusing on the economic revitalization of Pawtucket.

 

 

As many of you know the Pawtucket Red Sox are proposing to invest $45 million as their part of the construction of The Ball Park at Slater Mill at the former Apex site. This investment is the largest commercial investment in Pawtucket’s history. It will serve as a catalyst for additional development along the riverfront and through the Northern RI area.

On August 25th these groups will host a fundraiser, "Pawtucket is Home" Night, at McCoy Stadium, with a goal of raising dollars to support a multi-platform media campaign supporting the new ballpark at Slater Mill. We need to make sure everyone understands that Pawtucket and all of Rhode Island could lose this treasure.

Residents, fans, and Rhode Islanders are encouraged to come out to support this once-in-a-life time opportunity for Pawtucket, the Blackstone Valley, and Rhode Island. There will be a BBQ, cash bar, game, and fireworks.

It looks like President Trump and the president of Iran are trading threats about war.

More than a dozen others, including a young girl in critical condition, are in the hospital. It happened last night in east Toronto's Greektown neighborhood.        North Korea reportedly wants the U.S. to make a bold move and agree to a peace treaty before Pyongyang will talk any more about denuclearization. CNN cites what it calls an official with close knowledge of the North's position. That official says North Korea wants a permanent peace to replace the armistice that ended the Korean War.        A new report says suspected Russian spy Maria Butina allegedly had more high-level contacts in the federal government than previously reported. Reuters reports Butina sat in meetings with a Russian official and two officials with the U.S. Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department during the Obama administration.        Record heat is killing dozens of people in Japan as the country marks the hottest temperature ever recorded. The city of Kumagaya, about an hour and-a-half northwest of Tokyo, hit nearly 106 degrees Fahrenheit today.        You might want to rethink what you eat and drink, after a new heart study. Researchers at National Jewish Health in Denver found that mushrooms and green beans appear to be beneficial but there's a question mark about dairy products. It also found that tea, coffee, and alcohol appear to be okay but you should lay off energy drinks.
