Woonsocket, RI – The Autumnfest Steering Committee held their annual Reorganizational Meeting on Tuesday, January 31, 2017.  The committee chose Linda Plays to be this year’s Autumnfest Chairperson.  “I am honored and humbled to have been elected as Chair of the 2017 Autumnfest Steering Committee by my fellow committee members.  I am very eager to begin laying the groundwork for this year’s festival and utilize my years of knowledge, expertise, and familiarity with our organization to deliver another spectacular Autumnfest festival on Columbus Day weekend.”  I look forward to working with the new executive officers, including the Vice Chairman Richard Savaria, Treasurer Emile Laramee and Secretary Stephanie Santoro, as well as each and every member of this year’s Steering Committee.  I especially look forward to working with Rotary President David Lahousse and members from the Rotary Club.  I would also like to acknowledge Chairman Jeff Gamache and his leadership of the committee for the past three years and hope to learn as much as possible from him as we transition to a new year,” said Plays.


Linda Plays has served on the committee for five years, holding the positions of Secretary, Parade Chair and Grand Marshal Chair.
