This week started off with an event organized by Serve Rhode Island. AmeriCorps Opening Day was at the RI State Capitol building in the rotunda where every AmeriCorps in Rhode Island congregated to celebrate another successful year ahead. Each specific program offered a short description of what their goals are and the kinds of work they are doing. Even Governer Lincoln Chafee and senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse atteneded the event and to show their appreciation of our work and acknowledge its importance to Rhode Island. Serve RI created a video documenting the event.
