City Hall Group
Several retired workers from East Providence City Hall have been meeting monthly for lunch at Davenport's Restaurant for several years. "We had a wonderful time serving residents of the city," said Mary Lou Hill. Hill worked off and on for the city since 1968. Luncheon organizer is Genevieve Ramos. "The big group retired in 1991," said Ramos. "We've been trying to meet roughly on a monthly basis. Some lunches have more people attending, it depends on lots of things like health, etc." The group was in agreement that 'things aren't the same anymore.' "I actually miss the old City Hall which burned down in 1976," recalled Mary Lou Hill. "It was a great place to work, we all got along for the most part," she added. "The politics back then was more cordial."
