PAWTUCKET – Keep Blackstone Valley Beautiful is starting a walking group to walk and clean up our environment. “The weather has been great, so let’s get out and walk, meet new friends, and do a quick litter cleanup as we go,” states Donna Kaehler of KBVB.

KBVB will hold a walk in each of the 10 R.I. Blackstone Valley communities on Thursdays at 1 p.m., starting Feb. 23 in North Smithfield and continuing until April 27. Walks will last approximately an hour. Each route will be around 2 miles to get a little exercise and carry grabbers to pick up any litter along the way.

Welcome to the discussion.

We’ve recently revised our comment policy to help us be more consistent and to be in keeping with our goal to promote a better community conversation. If a comment is deleted, rather than complain about it, simply try again by modifying the verbiage.

Comments that will be deleted include:
  • Those that include threatening, derogatory, obscene, vulgar, lewd, racist, sexist or sexually-oriented language. This includes any name-calling/nicknames of people both on the local and national level.
  • Those with accusations or allegations that can’t be proven, or that try to build a negative narrative about one person or entity over time through a clearly coordinated campaign. If you believe the backstory really needs to be shared, send us a letter to the editor or a story pitch with your name and contact information.
  • Those with outright lies or falsehoods.
Please use the 'Report' link on each comment to let us know if you believe a comment was allowed in error.

What we at The Breeze would truly like to see are comments that add history and context to a story or that use criticism constructively.
