Rhode Island Street Rodding Association (RISRA) Year in Review

As 2023 comes to an end, RISRA wishes everyone a happy and prosperous New Year. Looking back on 2023 I would like to note that it was a very good year for our organization.

It was our 50th Anniversary as a nonprofit organization. This year we held the 34th Annual Automotive Extravaganza for the Johnston Little League on Memorial Day and approximately 450 vehicles attended. The first Rhode Island Shriners World of Wheels Show in conjunction with RISRA was well attended with the top winner receiving $300, second place was a $200 prize and third place received $100. We will certainly hope to expand this show held on the bay in Warwick. Our Seafood Festival held in Charlestown was a huge success. Last, but certainly not least is the Toys for Tots Show that we have sponsored for 46 years! I personally would like to thank every individual who took the time to purchase a toy and come to this event. Your generosity made a child’s Christmas brighter. Also at this show we collected can goods for the needy, thank you! RISRA also contributes monetary donations to several charities including our veterans, food banks and worthy charities. Joe Terino, President and Charlie Brousseau, Treasurer continue in office, we have a new Vice President, Neil Loudin and Secretary, Chris Landolfi. Congratulations to both of them.

On a personal note I have been the webmaster since the conception of the web site, but I will now hand the reins to more capable hands, John Arpin. Thanks to every person who has made our club so successful,

Jack Woodmansee
