First Visit to the Port of Providence: The SSV Oliver Hazard Perry arrives in Providence next week for her first visit on Thursday, September 29, bringing in some local high school students after a 3 days voyage. We are hosting a free professional development workshop at 4pm and the ship will be open for free tours to teachers and their students from 11-3pm, and again from 6-8pm for all visitors.
