PORTSMOUTH — American Legion Post #18 of Portsmouth has joined Clements’ Marketplace as a Heritage Sponsor of the 2013 Portsmouth 375th birthday celebration. Heritage Sponsors are those that contribute $5,000 or more to the celebration.
George Wardwell, who is also the 375th Parade Committee chairman, presented the donation to Committee Vice Chair Gary Gump.
Heritage sponsors have pledged sponsorship for the entire year. Other sponsorships, including sponsorships of individual events, are available and any amount is welcome. A portion of the donations will help defray the cost of events. However, the main reason for the fundraising effort is to provide the Portsmouth Free Public Library resources to preserve Portsmouth historic artifacts and documents. More information on events and sponsorships is available at www.PortsmouthRI375.com.
