Established 1639 ~ Organized 1731


Betty Is Home!
Betty the Learned Elephant, Glocester’s own “potato head” which we have owned since June of 2000, is now back home after being refurbished. Our thanks to Town Planner, Karen Scott, who obtained a Rhode Island Foundation Community Grant for the restoration costs, and Beth Decorte, Public Works, who helped every step of the way to protect her and work with vendors to find just the right person to fix her up. Welcome back, Betty!

ATTENTION: ALL GLOCESTER RESIDENTS     
POSTED MAY 5, 2017
Due to the growing amount of trash and litter on our town roads and in our ponds and streams, all trash being hauled in open truck beds or trailers must be secured (R.I.G.L. 31-25-10). Many of our residents have voiced a concern to the Town Council regarding the trash/litter problem in Glocester. The Council believes that asking residents to secure their trash when hauling to the transfer station will help eliminate the amount of trash on the roads and in our ponds.

Please do your part to KEEP GLOCESTER CLEAN AND GREEN. Help us clean up our roadways and ponds by doing your part and be sure your trash is secure.

Thank you to all residents who actively pick up litter on our roads and properties. Let’s all work together and continue to KEEP GLOCESTER CLEAN AND GREEN.

The Glocester Town Council
