October 8, 2014

NARRAGANSETT - When Madison Cronin, 7, of Narragansett, lost her new bike, a gift from her grandparents to ride back and forth to school, her parents did what anyone would do – they went to the Narragansett Police station to file a report for the missing gift. After being dispatched, Patrolman Jim Fitzgerald searched for the missing bike to no avail. However, he wasn’t going to settle for a missing bike and a sad little girl, so he took matters into his own hands.

At an afternoon meeting on Sunday, members and friends of the Co-op met in the new location, the former home of Drift Surf Shop, to discuss the reasoning behind the move and the potentials that the new space has to offer.
