On Tuesday, January 15th the Friends of Salter Grove (FoSG) were honored guests of Governor Gina Raimondo and First Gentleman Andy Moffit at the 2019 State of the State Address. Representing FoSG at the State House were Matt Dickinson and Michael Jarvis.

The evening began with a meet-and-greet Reception in the Governor’s State Room at 5:30 p.m. followed by the address at 7:00 p.m.

Matt and Michael were also greeted by FoSG member Rep. Joe McNamara, who introduced them around and made sure they didn’t get the cheap seats.

The invitation was extended to FoSG to recognize their commitment to the restoration and conservation of Salter Grove, an initiative which is aligned with the Governor’s continued commitment to the protection of Rhode Island’s green spaces. The Governor had expressed her admiration of the efforts underway at the Grove during a visit in May 2018 where members of the group along with Mayor Solomon and staff shared details of the proposed improvements along with a tour of the park.
