Hello and Happy Valentine’s Day from Residential Properties Ltd. We would like to personally thank all of the participants in our I <3 Rhode Island Contest, including those who liked and shared our post. It was our pleasure reading all of your fantastic comments explaining why this state is such a unique and wonderful place to live. Thank you to PVDonuts and Persimmon Restaurant who were so enthusiastic and supportive of this contest and provided the prizes. Please visit their great establishments on the East Side of Providence.
Congratulations to Jennifer Hill Lafond, our Runner-up who received a box of Valentine’s Day donuts from PVDonuts, and a big congrats to Amanda Robbio, who won the grand prize of a $100 gift certificate to Persimmon Restaurant along with her donuts.
We hope everyone has a lovely Valentine’s Day and enjoys this great state we live. We here at RPL love this state and are proud to be a part of your community.
Community involvement is important to us and when given a chance to participate in a project to brighten and enliven an area, we are inclined to give our support. So we did when the Parent Teacher Organization of the Vartan Gregorian Elementary School, our neighbor at the other end of Wickenden Street, asked us to help sponsor a mural on the blank wall of the school.
The project has been through two designs and we were given a look at the latest version by Michael Kolendowicz of Mamuth Murals. (A section of the mural is shown above.) Since the design had changed, the PTO asked again if we would continue to support the latest effort. Kate Keizler and Gina Mazza visited our office this morning with a printout of the future mural. Michael blended several colors into it to work with what he saw in the area and we’re glad to continue our sponsorship.
For a total review of this Fox Point area project, you should visit the artists’ blog. Mamuth Murals posted a detailed description of the design process and thinking going into the artwork. Getting the community to support these types of projects is important. The effort and coordination to include the communities feelings needs to be applauded. A dollar breakfast and walk-a-thon is being held this Saturday to further support the project.
There is always the traditional flowers or chocolates for the Valentine, but what do you do if you’ve done that for years and need something different. Well, here on Wickenden Street, we have just the place to help you out.
The Curatorium, with Chief Curator Matt Bird, is located between the Coffee Exchange and Adler’s Hardware and has those very unusual items. Or as a customer exclaimed to Matt, “I get it, it’s a store full of things that YOU like.”
