Woonsocket

On Thursday, Oct. 8, a traveling art show made a pit stop in Woonsocket at the local convenience store, Express Stop. Of course, in a small town, visitors as such do not go unnoticed. This particular art show consisted of a 1952 Chevy school bus with a late 1960s Volkswagon Vanagon body grafted to the top of the bus and pulling a Volkswagon Bug behind. All three vehicles were covered on all sides in art that was started by the owners and then added to by artists all across the country.

Deadwood – The South Dakota Trucking Association (SDTA) held their 85th Annual Convention in Deadwood on Sept. 9-11.

Each month the SDTA Safety Management Council selects a Driver of the Month to honor their safe driving accomplishments. On Friday afternoon, the twelve monthly winners between the 2019 and 2020 SDTA Conventions were invited to interview with a panel of three judges. Each were given six minutes to interview. The drivers were asked the same three questions. The one who receives the highest accumulated score is then named the 2020 Driver of the Year.

It is very difficult to select one driver, especially when each driver has to their credit so many miles of safe driving. The 12 monthly winners have a combined total of nearly 22,475,000 safe driving miles and over 309 years of experience. Each monthly winner was presented a plaque and an embroidered jacket for their accomplishments.

During the Chairman’s Banquet on Friday evening, Claude Raschke, Cliff Viessman, Inc., Gary, December 2019 Driver of the Month was honored with the title of 2020 Driver of the Year. He was presented a plaque from SDTA and $1,000.

The Woonsocket Community and Events Center has expanded its central role in connecting community residents and visitors.  Santel Communications recently installed a Public Wi-Fi system that provides free Wi-Fi.

According to Woonsocket Schools Superintendent, Dr. Rod Weber, “The school’s remote and eLearning platforms require the students’ reliable access to the Internet. It is important for the school to work with families and community to provide connectivity they need to continue learning through varied pandemic conditions and restrictions. Santel approached the school on ways to help and within a short amount of time, free public Wi-Fi was implemented.”
