HOPE VALLEY -- All are invited to watch officers from the Richmond Police Department play host to a charity softball challenge against Bill Lee and his celebrity all-stars at Dow Field on Main Street today June 26 at 1 p.m.
NORTH KINGSTOWN â€“ When visitors pour into the Quonset Air Museum this weekend they will see everything from a small balsa wood model of the Wright Brothersâ€™ plane in a showcase to the giant TBM-3 Avenger â€“ the same type of aircraft George H.W. Bush bailed out of as it crashed into the sea during World War II.
Although itâ€™s open year round, this tribute to the history and genius of aircraft design receives its biggest audience â€“ upwards of 1,000 â€“ during the Quonset Air Show. This yearâ€™s event, celebrating the centennial of Naval aviation, starts at 10 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.
