The events listed below were selected by Quahog editors to complement the character and content of Quahsog.org. We are pleased to be able to develop this year's initiative into something that we believe will work in the current time. To provide you with the most up-to-date and engaging presentations, we will update the sessions and add new topics as needed.
Everyone in the Cranston area is invited to pray with us and to learn about and learn from the Oriental Orthodox Christian faith. This event is hosted online and the webinar is a joint dual celebration of the Feast of the Holy Mary of the Immaculate Conception, the Feast of the Holy Mary of Assisi in Itri, Italy. Cranstone is known for his connection to the Virgin Mary, inspired by the Holy Mother of God and celebrated in itri on the feasts of Our Lady of the Civilization.
The day is celebrated by Orthodox Christians and Roman Catholic Christians as a special commemoration of creation and the protection of the environment, as well as by all Christians in the United States.
This year, Rhode Island Bakes for Breast Cancer is dedicated to Donna M. Smith, founder and chief executive of the Cancer Research Institute of Rhode Islands. Donna has lived in Rhode Islanders most of her life and has been an active volunteer and breast cancer fundraiser. She passed on her commitment to healing to her son Paul Raymond, who works as a clinical trial researcher at the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Clinical trials focus primarily on heavily subsidised research, such as cancer research.
The oldest - the Edgewood Yacht Club in Rhode Island - is located on the Providence River, south of the city of Cranston in Providence. Historians are debating whether to name the city after John F. Kennedy, the longest-serving governor and second-longest governor in US history, who was speaker of the House of Representatives at the time of its creation. On July 4, 1776, a town assembly was held in which the Cranes voted on a resolution against the coercive measures of the British Parliament, which strongly supported the cause of the patriots during the Revolutionary War.
After the residents of the area agreed on a name for the new city, the General Assembly created the city of Cranston from the part of Providence north of the Pawtuxet River. Cranstone lost much of its territory to neighboring cities and the city of Rhode Island, and in 1776 became a city itself.
The population was distributed over the area, 34.6% of which were non-family and 32.5% family inhabited. 28.7% had children under 18 years of age, of which 49.2% were married couples living together, 17.3% were 65 years or older, 12.5% had female homeowners without husbands and 9.1% had male homeowners.
The racial composition of the village was black, white, brown, black and white with an average age of 65 years and older. The racial makeup in the city consisted of black (52.7%), white (51.6%) and brown (50.2%).
At the time of Census 4 in 2000, the city of Cranston had 20,243 families, and the median income per family was $55,241. There were 3,078 residential units with an average age of 65 and a median household income of $44,108. According to the 2004 census, the median household income in that city was $44,108, according to the Rhode Island Department of Housing and Community Development, while the average household age was 35.
Four highways run through Cranston, and there are other - numbered - roads in and around Cranston, according to the Rhode Island Department of Transportation's website.
At the federal level, Cranston is currently represented by Democrat James R. Langevin and is the seat of the US House of Representatives, the State of Rhode Island Senate and the US Senate. In the Rhode Island Senate, it is split between Democrats representing the state's 3rd and 4th Congressional districts and the District of Columbia, with Democrats Erin O'Connor and John F. Kennedy, both Republicans.
The City Council is composed of seven members, six of whom represent the city's districts, and the Cranston Public Schools School School Board, which is composed of four members representing the city's districts. The Metropolitan Police and Fire Department, as well as the Department of Public Safety, are operating under the direction of Mayor Thomas J. O'Brien.
