The American Red Cross Rhode Island Chapter is celebrating 100 years of service to the Rhode Island community. The chapter was chartered September 16, 1916 on Aquidneck Island in Newport. As part of the year-long celebration, the Red Cross has partnered with Roger Williams University to create a visual timeline highlighting milestones and achievements of the organization in Rhode Island over the last century.Faculty member John Farmer and graphic design students worked together on the 12-panel “A Century of Service Traveling Exhibit.”
The University Library is hosting the display from May 2 – 14. The exhibit will be touring various venues throughout the state, culminating in a special evening event in Newport at Tennis Hall of Fame on September 17, 2016.
