BroadbandBI Community Celebration & Lighting Ceremony
Monday, June 5th at 11:30
Southeast Light on Mohegan Bluffs
Join the Town of New Shoreham and Sertex Broadband Solutions in celebrating the activation of BroadbandBI!
The island-wide fiber optic network envisioned, planned, built and funded by the people of New Shoreham is a reality. The ceremonial event on Mohegan Bluffs overlooking the Block Island Wind Farm will honor the hard work and dedication of everyone involved in achieving this extraordinary accomplishment of the Block Island community.
Celebration highlights include a presentation ceremony with local, state, and federal officials, and BroadbandBI program partners.
“As a community, we recognized that our lack of modern infrastructure was adversely affecting our day-to-day lives. This project took years from conception to planning to financing and construction, and very much illustrates our community’s history of independence and tenacity.”
– Kim Gaffett, life-long Block Island resident and former First Warden
