Happy Birthday, Heritage Corridor!

The Heritage Corridor celebrated its 25th birthday in style recently with an old fashioned rally at the Corridor Commission offices in Woonsocket.  A variety of speakers, led off by Congressman David Cicilline of RI, talked about the past and the future of the Blackstone Valley Corridor.

Participants celebrated with cake and mini flags sporting the Corridor logo.  A new video about the Heritage Corridor was shown along with a slide show giving a retrospective look at the people and partners who have worked together over the last 25 years. 

The Extraordinary Rendition Band rocked the house as they led attendees on a mini-parade around the Depot.  The evening closed with a moving patriotic medley sung by local singer Dominique Doiran.

It was a great way to celebrate 25 years!
