Email from Pam Gasner for the Block Island Tribute for June 26th 2011

Connie- received approval from Town of monument to read “in honor of the Manissean’s   Their ancestors and descendants”. I will email you a drawing this weekend. The 350 committee is paying for the stone to be located near the Indian cemetery at Fresh Pond. The other stone for the village site is being funded by the historical society and we are hoping to receive pledges towards it. The cost is $500.  If you can put the word out that would be great. It will be a natural stone located on the trail where we can  add the memory piles. “Manissean village site.  500 BC” dedicated 2011 will be inscribed. Looking forward to your visit.

For June 26th – Block Island Trip I will be making plans to be at the Lighthouse Inn on June 25th – We will be taking the Point Judith Ferry to the Island (getting times and dates together) on the 26th~ Info on Inn: Across from the Block Island Ferry, the Lighthouse Inn is a fun, casual Beach Hotel located in an authentic fishing village of Galilee, RI. It’s the perfect Location to relax and enjoy southern Rhode Island! Great beaches, seafood houses, riverboat cruises, fishing charters, the Pt. Judith salt pond, ice cream and gift shops, local pubs with live music and plenty of sea air, seagulls and sunshine are waiting for you at the Lighthouse Inn of Galilee.
