Thanks to everyone for attending our 2015 Celebrate West Greenwich Event held at the West Greenwich
Town Hall Pavilion on September 27th. Our event could not have been  successful without the
generous support from our sponsors and partners: the West Greenwich Town Council,
Centreville Bank, Loutttit Library, Boy Scout Troop 35, Roch's Market, and Dan's Place.
A special thanks to the Andrews Family for providing the barbecue chicken dinner.

Throughout the afternoon, folks enjoyed horse drawn wagon rides provided by the Rockwell Family,
a hands-on aquarium from the Biomes Center, History of West Greenwich Then and Now
by local author Kathy Swann, Born To Be Wild Nature Center, Reptile Exhibit by B'Wana Iguana,
music by Russ Partridge, Land Trust Photo Contest, Apple Pie Contest and a fabulous home town
barbecue chicken dinner prepared by the Andrews family of West Greenwich.

A good time was enjoyed by all. See you next year!
