That's the cool thing about Patch – we can all be storytellers of our town.

Young, old, experienced and novice turn out Saturday to transform the London Street Passage (a.k.a. The Luge).
The East Greenwich Housing Authority sponsored its 10th Annual Great Graffiti Contest Saturday at the London Street Passage downtown.

The contest was developed in coordination with Town Manager Bill Sequino "to make this a way for people to express themselves in a positive way," explained coordinator Tracy Johnson.
