Carlton Brownell was instrumental in the restoration of Chace-Cory House and support of our Society. In his memory, we established a scholarship fund. We awarded two scholarships this spring to Roseline Martin from Tiverton High School and Dylan Mello of Little Compton. Congratulations! Our thanks to all who donated to the scholarship fund! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
