Some of the issues that this branch is involved in are: (1) Education Committee is reviewing the hiring of minority educators; (2) Legal Redress Committee, assisting persons with Civil Rights issues; (3) Political Action Committee, holding Candidates Forums with Candidates who represent the Newport County citizens; (4) the Branch sponsored “Stay-In-School Projects”, giving out backpacks containing school supplies; and (5) Scholarships to College Students.

During the Dinner, Awards will be presented to Aquidneck Island citizens in the following categories: Education, Role Model and Community Service. 

The 92nd Anniversary Annual Awards Dinner is the branch’s only source of funds for the years 2011-2012 operating expenses.  Your support of this endeavor will help us to continue with our missions.
