Summer meeting will be held on Monday, August 27th.
Our next meeting is set for November 23, 2015 at Pal’s Restaurant, located at the southeast corner of Division Street and Duke Street in East Greenwich at 7PM. While Pal’s specializes in Italian Food, they have an extensive menu with lots of other items. It is posted on line, just google Pal’s Restaurant. Please note that the Restaurant while not be charging us for the use of their private room, but will be charging a surcharge on credit/debit cards, so you may want to bring cash to pay for your meal.
The meeting should have a lot of information hot off the press. Now that budget caps have been lifted for discretionary spending, all eyes will be on the Amtrak Appropriations and New Starts. There will be review of the NARP Fall Council Meeting in Indianapolis as well as updates on the Kingston and Providence station grounds construction.
A newsletter containing more information about the meeting and news in general will be forthcoming.
