Woonsocket – Richard Savaria, Autumnfest General Chairman states that Autumnfest celebrates its 40th year in 2018.  The selection process for the 2018 Autumnfest Grand Marshal has begun and the Steering Committee is planning to announce its selection in early June.  The planning process for the Grand Marshal’s Celebration will be enhanced and the honoree/honorees will have more time to relish their prestigious award.

 

The criteria for the Autumnfest Grand Marshal apply to individual/individuals who have, without compensation, given of themselves above and beyond for the betterment of the community and in some way Autumnfest.  In short, their efforts and contribution must have come from the heart.

At least ten people are dead after a man drove a rental van 35 to 40 miles an hour on a Toronto sidewalk. Witnesses say it looked like the man was targeting people walking along busy Yonge [[ young ]] Street yesterday afternoon. Police arrested the 25-year-old driver.        The White House is not ruling out a possible pardon of President Trump's longtime personal attorney. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters yesterday it's "hard to close the door on something that hasn't taken place." Federal agents raided Michael Cohen's office, home, and hotel room earlier this month but haven't charged him.        French President Emmanuel Macron [[ mah-CRONE ]] and his wife will be getting first class treatment at the White House today. In the first official state visit of the Trump administration, the Macrons will be formally greeted on the South Lawn this morning. They will also be honored during a state dinner tonight.        Former President George H.W. Bush is being treated for an infection that spread to his blood. A statement from the 41st president's spokesman says Bush was admitted to Houston Methodist Hospital Sunday morning. The 93-year-old former president is in the intensive care unit and is said to be responding to treatment.        The FCC is changing the rules on net neutrality, but it could be awhile before anyone notices, if they ever do. New rules that took effect yesterday allow Internet providers to block or slow content, or charge more for faster delivery of content. Dozens of lawsuits followed last year's announcement of the rules change.        A kangaroo at a Chinese zoo is dead after visitors threw rocks at the animal to make it hop. The Fuzhou Zoo says the 12-year-old female kangaroo was pelted with stones, injuring its foot and causing internal bleeding. The incident happened in February but the details were only now made public.
