Pawtucket scribes to be feted

UPDATE: The ProJo also had coverage of plans for the Thursday evening event.

Speaking of the strip-mining of American newspapers, some of those recently departed from the Times of Pawtucket are due to be celebrated on Thursday. Phillipe & Jorge have the details:

You may recall that a couple of weeks back, your superior correspondents were ruing the departure of a number of longtime scribes from the Times of Pawtucket. We mentioned how there was talk of holding a “time” for these staffers.
The date is now set: Thursday evening, July 12, at the China Inn, the landmark eatery smack dab in the middle of downtown Pawtucket. Kevin “P.” O’Connor, Doug Hadden, Rich Dugas, Scott Dolan, and David Casey will all be feted for their many years of service to the paper and to the city. Many flasks of amber-colored fluids will be raised, as will the requisite amount of hell and money to benefit the Pawtucket Animal Shelter. In a desperate attempt to make it seem like there’s some manner of professional entertainment, Jorge (aka Rudy Cheeks) will act as master of ceremonies. We hope to see anyone and everyone who cares about Pawtucket and journalism.
