The Discovery Deck, an interactive, educational exhibit showcasing the maritime industry of Newport and Narragansett Bay, is just a few short weeks from opening at the Seamen’s Church Institute of Newport.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place during the Seaman’s Church Institute‘s Annual Meeting on November 12th from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm.
