    Join AIAS RWU and the Bristol Community for the Garden of Hope Opening Ceremony on Oct. 24

    Please Join the American Institute of American Architecture Students and the Bristol community for the grand opening celebration of the East Bay Garden of Hope. The garden was the dream of the late Laurie Cordeiro to be a peaceful place in which those suffering from cancer can use to escape their pain and suffering.

    The celebration will begin at 12 p.m. (noon) on Friday, October 24 at the garden, which is located at the entrance of the Quinta-Gamelin Community Center just past the cemetery at Colt State Park.

    The AIAS RWU Freedom By Design program, a student-led design/build group, has collaborated on bringing Laurie's dream to life with her family and with the Bristol Parks and Recreation Department and the Gloria Gemma Foundation. Daponte's Landscaping and Arnold Lumber contributed to this effort, as well.
