The North Smithfield Heritage Assn (NSHA) announces the start of its 2023 Annual Community Appeal. Rich Keene, NSHA president, explains that “Virtually all the group’s preservation activities are funded by donations. We hope that the community continues to support our efforts to preserve North Smithfield’s rich heritage.”
Funds raised will help complete the interior restoration of the historic Forestdale School, purchase materials to restore and maintain damaged gravestones at historic cemeteries, as well as fund a wide range of free programs and activities.
Members of the NSHA Board of Directors kicked off the 2023 campaign with personal donations that totaled almost $4K. “We hope the community follows their lead. Any amount will help!”
