 Did you know the Courthouse Center for the Arts in West Kingston puts on free children's theater and music classes and camps? They even have inclusion camps for special needs kids. The Courthouse Chimes Chorus performs at nursing homes and assisted living facilities, as well as at events all around the county; open rehearsal is every Saturday morning. Courthouse Arthur Murray Dance Classes are every Wednesday evening. Drum lessons are available. All this in addition to theatrical performances, concerts with local and national talents and ongoing art gallery shows.
Thank you to executive director Mariann Almonte for sharing her passion with us at our meeting Tuesday night.
The nonprofit is located in the 19th century former Kingston Courthouse, a large, granite-block building just west of the University of Rhode Island, which the organization purchased from the state for $1and the promise that it will remain a community arts center in perpetuity. The first floor holds rooms for events, classes and art showings, while the second floor performance space has variable seating to allow for traditional theater seating, theater-in-the-round, cafe seating or whatever the event calls for.

Bridget Gieseke, Adoption RI's Fund Development & Donor Relations Coordinator, presented us with an in-depth introduction to how the program works and to its newest innovation, the Teen Focus Team. They are currently providing direct services to about 150 placements and follow-up services to thousands, while the Teen Focus Team works with an additional 45-50 teenagers who will likely never find a family home. 
Adopting a child through Adoption Rhode Island is free and provides a lifetime of follow-up if needed, as opposed to private adoptions, which can cost tens of thousands of dollars and cut the family loose once the adoption is final.

Celebrating its 10th year, the free care day has grown from an average of 100-120 patients to a high point last year of 250 patients. The Arrowhead staff are joined by an increasing number of volunteers from other dental programs from around the state.

Individuals and entire families who could not afford a dentist on their own come for care to the event. Treatments can include anything from basic cleaning, x-rays and exam to some basic surgery and extractions. Follow-up visits are provided when necessary.

Chariho Rotary is supporting Dentistry from the Heart with a $200 donation.

We had a good turnout for our field trip to Clark Library to see the new 3-D Printer that was funded by a Chariho Rotary Grant.  The printer, which will be shared with other local libraries when requested, is located in the Maker Space and available to all patrons. 

There are booklets available that explain the printing software and classes that are offered throughout the year on how to use the printer. There is no charge for the sessions and all are invited.  Reservations are strongly suggested and can be made by calling the library at 364-6100.  Big Thank You to Jeannine Harrington who arranged for this visit.

Ten members of Chariho Rotary will be heading up to this dinner; if you would like to be included, contact Ed Smith or Kim Kelly ASAP.
The Chariho Rotary Club had a great Saturday at the Swamp Yankee Days Festival. We only wished we could be there Sunday as well- but Mother Nature just did not have that in the cards. And despite having to cancel our favorite Cow Chip Bingo, we would like to congratulate the winners who's deeds were drawn at random:
 
1st Place $500 Winner- Doug Randall
2nd Place $250 Winner- Cindy Dotson
3rd Place $100 Winner- Ella Schuster
 
A special thank you to our Cow Chip BINGO Sponsors: Chariho Furniture, Pinecrest Golf Course, Sheri Major CPA, The Chariho Middle School Girls Softball Coaches and The Jonnycake Center of Westerly and to all of our 'property owners' who purchased Deeds to support the event. We look forward to doing it again next year!
 
President Liz Pasqualini will be joined by:
President-elect - Kim Kelley
Treasurer (for life) - Sheri Major
Secretary - Merrill Moone
Sargeant-at-arms - Gary Grimmer
 
Congratulations to all our newest officers!
