Meet new military families Wednesday

A welcoming party for military families with children is scheduled from 2:30-4 p.m. Aug. 29 at the library, 26 North Road.

Roughly 50 families arrive annually for temporary stationing at the U.S. Naval War College in Newport. To welcome these residents, Sue Gaynor and a contingency of military wives have organized ice cream socials for the past nine years. Besides meeting school faculty, civic organizations send representatives with information about their groups.

The free party is sponsored by the local Parent Teachers Organization. To learn more about the ice cream social, call Gaynor at 423-0365.
