Ready...set...murder!  The Down        town Woonsocket Collaborative is excited to announce their next fundraising event, "Murder at the Museum".  It's 1955, Woonsocket has finally begun to recover from the massive flood that destroyed businesses, homes, and cemeteries.  The City has planned a dinner to thank those who helped in the cleanup efforts and to give the citizens of Woonsocket an evening to celebrate.  However, a gruesome discovery has cast a shadow on the festivities!  While re-interring the displaced Precious Blood cemetery, there was one body that could not be identified.  Is it the drifter who had become a menace to the City?  Maybe the rumored lover of the police chief's wife?  Whispers abound up and down Main Street over the identity of the deceased and just who would have used the flood to cover up their crime.

 

This is your chance to help solve the murder!  Clues will be available in local Main Street businesses that will lead to the name and role of the victim.  Clues are located at the Museum of Work & Culture, Woonsocket Historical Society, Ye Olde English, NY Lunch, Timeless Antiques, Main Street Cafe, Renaissance Tattoo Studio, Trendz, The Art Den, and Ciro's Tavern. 

 

The event will take place on Saturday May 19th, 2018.  A buffet dinner will be served by Savini's Pomodoro at 40 South Main Street (MillRace Event Space) at 6pm and then the event at 42 South Main Street (Museum of Work & Culture) which will start at 8pm.  Tickets will be $40 per person for both events or only $20 per person for entry at the Museum.  Guests will be able to speak to the suspects and witnesses at the event and asked to identify the murder suspect at the Museum with one lucky winner who will win a $150 gift card to Savini's Pomodoro.  Guests are encouraged to dress to impress in their favorite 40's and 50's attire. 

 

DWC Chairman Garrett Mancieri says, "An event like this is always a great time.  It is not only a fun night out in downtown Woonsocket, but it also encourages visitors to our local businesses to gather up the clues to help them solve the mystery.  We hope that you will buy tickets and join us for a great time out that should be a night to remember."  DWC is a 501c3 organization and tax advantages may apply for the purchase of tickets and sponsorships. 

 

Tickets must be purchased before the date and are available on SquareUp (https://squareup.com/store/downtownwoonsocketcollaborative).  Tickets can also be purchased in person at The Art Den at 285 Main Street.  Event sponsorships are available by contacting a DWC board member.  More information can be also be found on the Downtown Woonsocket Collaborative Facebook page, www.facebook.com/downtown02895

 

Please share this email with your family and friends.  Hope to see you there this Saturday!

Harvey Weinstein's lawyer says the disgraced Hollywood producer plans to plead not guilty to sex crime charges involving two women. Defense attorney Ben Brafman says he's seeking to dismiss charges and believes his client will be exonerated. After surrendering to four counts of sex crimes including rape at a Manhattan precinct this morning, Weinstein posted one-million-dollars cash bail at his arraignment.        Two people are in critical condition and a gunman is in custody after a shooting at a school in Indiana. Police say that the situation is contained at Noblesville West Middle School, located just northeast of Indianapolis. The victims reportedly are a 13-year-old girl and an adult. The school is on lockdown. The students are being bused to nearby Noblesville High School.        President Trump says talks between North Korea and the U.S. are ongoing. Talking with reporters at the White House today, Trump said -- "We'll see what happens." Trump withdrew from his planned June 12th summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un yesterday. He said harsh rhetoric from the North prompted his decision.        President Trump is giving remarks at the U.S. Naval Academy commencement ceremony. Presidents traditionally address graduating members of one American military academy each year, on a rotating basis. Today's commencement ceremony in Annapolis, Maryland will include a flyover by the Blue Angels.       An explosion at a Toronto-area restaurant is leaving more than a dozen people injured.
