Vose True Value Hardware Receives NRICA Award

The Northern Rhode Island Council of the Arts (NRICA) presented Vose True Value Hardware with its Art Award at its recent annual dinner meeting held at St. Ann Arts and Cultural Center.


The award recognizes a person or organization whose arts-related activities and interest have improved the community. Vose True Value Hardware has assisted the organization for a long time, serving as a ticket outlet and helping the NRICA with publicity for events.


Vose True Value Hardware has also been generous with their time and talents by designing and donating beautiful baskets for raffles for the group’s events. Those design talents have also been used to provide stunning centerpieces for the annual Mardi Gras.


Last year, Vose True Value Hardware was one of the key elements that helped the NRICA win most beautiful float at the 2021 Autumnfest Parade.


The NRICA thanked Ann Jalette, Peggy Ganim, the Chomka (Chet and Steve) family, and the folks at Vose True Value Hardware for their constant, enthusiastic, and steadfast support of the NRICA, that helps the group accomplish its mission.
