|The Alliance for a Livable Newport
(ALN) will be holding a free public forum at the Newport Public Library
on January 23 to unveil a host of planned activities recognizing this year’s 375th Anniversary of the founding of Newport.
Founded in 1639 by William Brenton, Henry Bull, Jeremy Clark, John Clarke, William Coddington, John Coggeshall, Nicholas Easton, and Thomas Hazard, Newport became the first capital of the State of Rhode Island.
Co-chairs of the 375th Anniversary Celebration Committee, former mayors Steve Waluk and co-chair John Trifero, will be joined by members of Newport’s 375th committee who will outline the City’s plans for public celebrations, family-friendly activities, lectures and educational programs throughout 2014.
A “Q & A” will follow the presentation during which additional ideas can be discussed.
