Lincoln, RI – December 10, 2013

Major General Kevin R. McBride, Adjutant General of Rhode Island and Commanding General of the Rhode Island National Guard, will be the guest speaker at the next Northern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce’s Eggs and Issues Breakfast on Thursday, December 19th, 2013 at 8:00am at the Kirkbrae Country Club, 197 Old River Road, Lincoln.
