Rhode Island’s State House, built between 1895 and 1904, has the world’s fourth largest self-supported marble dome. We will learn more about our capitol building and our state’s unique history and visit the Charter Museum and Gift Shop. Some elected officials will join our group for lunch.
Established in 1882 and incorporated in 1904. the Women’s Alliance has, since 2014, been affiliated with the First Unitarian Church of Providence. The mission continues to be to serve the community, both locally and at large; to provide friendship and spiritual and cultural stimuli for its members, and to support the church and its denomination.
The Alliance meets on the first Monday of the month from October through May, with an annual outing in June. Monthly programs, which are open to the community, feature inspiring speakers followed by a delicious optional luncheon ($10).
Membership dues ($35) support the programs and business expenses of the Alliance; all fundraising profits after expenses benefit selected charitable organizations that support women and families. The Alliance conducts fundraiser throughout the year such as selling organic coffee and cheese, and a night at the theater event. Their major fundraising event of the year is an annual “Antiques and Uniques” indoor sale. The Alliance also partners with the residents of the Tockwotton Courtyard Memory Unit for a garden project.
