Over 200 people attended the Nov. 3 event to celebrate the induction of the Class of 2023: Gail Ahlers (CEO, The Empowerment Factory), Phyllis Nathanson (real estate developer and artist advocate), Beth Roberge, (advocate for older Rhode Islanders), Rick Roth (owner of Mirror Image, a cutting edge textile printing company, lifetime activist, and founder of Pawtucket Film Festival), Patricia St. Germain (long-time Fairlawn activist and President of Fairlawn Against Crime Together), and historical inductee, Martha Jencks Chase (early American pioneer and inventor).

The traditional “Person of the Year Award”, was given to recognize the person the committee believes has made an outstanding contribution over this past year will be presented to be Anchor/Reporter, Alison Bologna from WJAR NBC10.
