We begin the show with a brief discussion of the Creative and Cultural Economy Bond. We’d like to bring our listeners attention an op-ed piece in today’s Providence Journal by WaterFire Providence’s Executive Director Barnaby Evans, and Preservation RI Executive Director Valerie Talmage. Please visit YesOn5RI.com for more info on this important bond issue.
Then we are joined by Reverend Dr. Richard Dannenfelser – Clinical Psychologist, Presbyterian Minister, Vietnam Veteran and ten year WaterFire volunteer who will be sharing his insights on the WaterFire event, his role as a volunteer, his observations as to how WaterFire effects members of the community, his connection to specific events such as the WaterFire Salute to Veterans.
