Thomas Twitchell Dedication

May 18, 2010

Join the Friends of Smith Hill Library on Wednesday, June 16th, in a ceremony in honor of Reverend Thomas Twitchell.  We will present the Twitchell family with a certificate in recognition of their generous donation of Tom’s personal library to add to the Smith Hill Library collection.

Tom Twitchell was a long time member of the Friends of Smith Hill Library and a strong supporter of many Smith Hill community organizations.  He served as Community Advisor for the Providence College Feinstein Institute for Public Service, assisted the Providence Health Centers, and helped to found the Smith Hill Community Development Corporation.  He was well known for his generosity and activism, and is deeply missed.

The ceremony in his honor will be held in the garden (weather permitting) from 6:00 to 7:30 in the evening.
