BREEZE PHOTO BY BILL MURPHY DAVID CRUZ, of Cumberland, greets visitors at the casket of Hearthside House owner Simon E. Thornton, who died there in 1873, as part of the Gone But Not Forgotten – A Victorian Mourning Exhibit at the house in Lincoln last Saturday. Each room throughout the house was transformed to re-create the scene of a typi- cal wake and funeral of the 19th century. See more photos on page 21. CUMBERLAND – The newest member of the Cumberland School Committee has a rare com- bination in qualifying for the board: being both a teacher and a father of students in the district. Denis Collins, 41, of 5 Wedgewood Drive, near St. John Vianney Catholic Church where he teaches CCD, told The Valley Breeze he was "all-in" on the position after learning from a friend that the school board would have a vacancy needing to be filled after the departure of Steve Hess for Florida. He had considered a run last fall before deciding to wait. The Town Council appoint- ed Collins to the newly vacant District 5 seat last Wednesday, Oct. 2, after he was the only one to submit his resume following a call for interested applicants. He was immediately sworn in Collins brings rare teaching experience to school board By ETHAN SHOREY Valley Breeze Managing Editor COLLINS See COLLINS, Page 17 CUMBERLAND – After several months of speculation and some recent hints on social media, it's official: Woonsocket's Ravenous Brewing Company is moving to Cumberland, with a new, larger loca- tion set to open later this month. The new building, located at 10 Industrial Road near the new roundabouts, will add approximately 35 seats to the brewery's current 10- to 15-seat setup and offer separate tasting and brewing areas. In its current location on Cumberland Hill Road, said owner Dorian Rave, the tasting room shuts down when it's time to brew because everything happens in one space. "The brew room will be separate, which is great because it'll allow us to be open and expand our hours," he said.
