SAC members volunteer at Roger Williams National Memorial

On Thursday October 19, 2017 SAC members gathered together at Roger Williams National Memorial to give back to the Providence Community. Participants spent the morning cleaning the parking lot, raking leaves, and removing debris. The cleanup has become an annual SAC event and we have established a great relationship with the park rangers! SAC members even got a quick history lesson about the development of the area. If you are interested in arranging a departmental volunteer opportunity at Roger Williams National Memorial please contact SAC at sac@brown.edu with any questions.
