Damage repair fundraiser on Saturday 'Outcasts' film in Providence Saturday PAWTUCKET – After thieves made off with four of 11 bronze plaques which told the story of the Famine in Ireland, the 1916 Committee will hold a fundraiser to help underwrite a portion of expenses involved on Saturday, Nov. 10, from 2 to 6 p.m. at the Galway Bay Pub, 156 South Bend St. The Rhode Island Irish Famine Memorial was dedi- cated in November of 2007. The memorial is located on the Providence River Greenway across from Capriccio's Restaurant. In part, the memorial consisted of an historical narrative wall containing 11 bronze plaques which told the story of the Famine in Ireland and the subsequent migration of many refugees to Rhode Island. Four plaques were stolen in August. The repair and replacement cost exceeds $10,000. There will be a fun- draiser held at Galway Bay Pub. The music will be pro- vided by several local musi- cians including Sean Connell, Bob Drouin and the Exiles and others. Raffle prizes include an oil painting by Carmel McEvoy, gift cards from local busi- nesses, hand-made gifts and assorted gift baskets. Food will also be served through the afternoon. The event is open to the public but dona- tions are gratefully accepted. Checks can be made out to the Famine Memorial Committee and are tax deductible. PROVIDENCE – The critically acclaimed film "Outcasts," a movie that "lays bare the lives of people on society's fringes" while it fol- lows the Catholic Franciscan Friars of Renewal in their work around the world, will be screened this Saturday, Nov. 10, at 3 p.m., at the McVinney Auditorium, 43 Dave Gavitt Way. The film is for mature audi- ences due to the raw nature of its content. Admission is free, and there is plenty of free parking. Pre-registration is requested. Register at www. or phone 401-278-4588. To learn more and see a film trailer, visit www.outcast- . Following the screening of the 60-minute film, there will be a 30-minute question and answer period with direc- tor Joe Campo, and Father John Anthony, one of the Friars in the film.
