This article is so important and truly makes me proud of what we have built at Easy Entertaining. We have worked really hard to make
it exactly what we want. It’s not perfect but it’s close. So honored to be next to my pals Ellen Slattery and Milena Pagan. You’re all queen bees in my book.

Like a Rolling Stone

I was so excited to receive tickets to Bob Dylan. I wanted to send a thank you and to let you know that I shared the second seat with a friend of mine who wanted to go but didn’t think he would be alive the night of the show, so he didn’t buy tickets. My friend is in stage four lung, brain and liver cancer. The timing of getting these tickets could not have been better and being able to take my friend was like Make a Wish for adults.

Clarification: In December’s “Rhode Islanders of the Year” story about Conimicut’s Apollo 11 parade, a rocket replica on one of the floats was made by Conimicut’s Boy Scout Troop 1. In the same issue, we omitted crediting Gary Carlson for some of the raptor photos in “Eagle Scouts.”
