To the Editor:
On July 3 I returned home from work to a nice surprise: American flags on my neighbors' lawns and on my own. I saw online John Morgan of Slocum Realty donated the flags and the neighborhood children in Greenwood helped deliver them. This small, kind gesture is yet another example of the strong and active community we have here in Warwick.
Last month the community gathered for an outstanding Gaspee Day Parade, along with an arts and crafts festival and block party. An impressive fireworks display was put on in Oakland Beach this past Fourth of July weekend.
Looking ahead, Warwick has summer concerts, food truck nights, movies in the park, the 50th Anniversary Moon Landing Parade, charity runs, and a myriad of other events planned-all opportunities to come together, enjoy the summer weather, and celebrate.
Considering all the recent headlines about the city, and acknowledging that we have a lot to improve, as we work together to address our fiscal situation, I think it is important to remember all the reasons why we choose to live in Warwick.
Outstanding people make up our community. These are people who go out of their way to strengthen our neighborhoods. I look forward to seeing people out and about at all the fun events planned for the summer.
