PAWTUCKET EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | APRIL 24-30, 2019 LETTERS / PAWTUCKET 9 Thanks to The Breeze for 'Championship Madness' A tip of the hat to the brain trust of The Valley Breeze for run- ning a well thought out and unique "Championship Madness" contest. Also, thank you for your prompt- ness in sending me my prize that I had the pleasure of sharing with Pete Riley of Providence. And, congrats to Beverly Farrell of Cumberland (2nd place), and also to Mike Tassone of Lincoln, chosen winner of a random drawing. In closing, the timing of my prize could not have been more perfect, as my daughter and I went to Boston for Patriot's Day. The day included the Red Sox game and watching some of the Boston Marathon. Again, thanks to the entire staff at The Valley Breeze.
