Thank You to everyone for voting in the Thanksgiving Basket Contest in the Roto on November 16th. We won 1st Place this year (our first time, ever), which makes all the time and effort into planning, organizing and creating our CornuKruppia  most rewarding!  Overall, 262 votes were cast (the most ever) in the contest, and 26 baskets were entered – with all the food donations going to the Capital City Community Center in Providence, feeding needy families this Holiday season. Again, thank you all so much!
