I would be delighted to talk to you or any member of your staff about the possibilities. The Armory offers much to its community and very much welcomes young people. I am a graduate of WHS (our 50-year reunion is in October) and now teach (44 years) at CCRI in Warwick. It is my belief that the Armory is there to add richness to the lives of people in Westerly.

Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you (my home phone in Warwick is 401-738-3844 and my personal email is toorobert@aol.com).
