Mr. Vinny, The Bubble Guy, made his way through the new parking lot, creating giant bubbles that floated gracefully in the light wind as spectators mostly sat in their cars. SCITUATE – With final touches going on the Scituate Police Station, another overdue project, the expan- sion at the Scituate Animal Shelter, remains at a standstill due to a lack of funds. Delays on the construction of the shelter, located at 106 George Washington Highway, will con- tinue until $85,245 is raised to cover costs for the $154,590 bid by Superstructure Building for a concrete block perimeter wall, the sole bidder for the project. An alter- nate for $138,424 for a wood frame perimeter wall is also being consid- ered.

EMA Director Todd Manni said that as of now, this will be the first road race in the state to take place since the start of the pandemic in Rhode Island. Town Councilor Sean Kilduff motioned for the approval and Councilor T. Michael Lawton sec- onded the authorization of the request from Ocean State Multisport to reschedule the date of the race to Aug. 9, subject to state guidelines at the time of the race and the approv- al of local public health official and state officials. Town Council President Suzy Alba and Councilor Dina Cerra both opposed the motion. "I'm going to be honest, I do not feel comfortable approving this this evening," Alba said.
