Celebrating Earth Day and the 300th Anniversary of Our South Kingstown Community

Celebrating Earth Day and the 300th Anniversary of Our South Kingstown Community

On April 22 we enjoyed an incredible event with over 200 of our friends and neighbors. The first part of the day was spent focusing on Earth Day, joining forces to work on a town-wide cleanup. Enjoying the power of numbers, we picked up trash from our public spaces, starting bright and early in the morning.

Was it hard work? Absolutely. Is picking up trash an ideal Saturday morning activity? It doesn’t quite hit the top of the list for most of us. But we had so much fun together, celebrating exactly what it means to be a community, and experiencing what the power of community can do.

And then the real party got started.

Celebrating South Kingstown’s 300th Anniversary

When early afternoon rolled around, we regrouped at our Dennis Moffitt Painting headquarters to celebrate together. Special thanks to all who made the merriment possible, including:

  • Burgers and hotdogs from Tase-Rite Co

  • Pizza from NY Pizza of RI

  • Desserts from Belmont Market

  • Beer from Shaidzon Beer Co

We also want to thank our very own John Sundstrom, a talented member of the DMP team, who provided live music with his Rock Pine House Band. They rocked it!

As the icing on the cake, we unveiled a mural to commemorate the occasion. Quinn Corey, a talented local artist, helped develop the vision and bring it to life on our wall. Here’s a look at him hard at work, and then the finished result. Isn’t it amazing? Be sure to check it out the next time you drive by!

Why we love our South Kingstown Community

A community is so much more than just the place where you live. It’s the people you live alongside, work with, laugh with, and even clean up trash with. It’s the collective group that gives life, meaning, and familiarity to a town. We’re so grateful to live and work within this particular community, and to have the opportunity to use our talents to serve it.
