Ski Club, Saturday shopping & a final car show: Five things to know in North Smithfield this week

The North Smithfield Heritage Association found a plaque in their archives used to dedicate the Park Square Liquors building in 1977, later removed by the owners. The new owners of Park Square Pharmacy plan to put the plaque on display at their new business at 65 Eddie Dowling Highway, the location of the original pharmacy opened by the Dalti brothers. The new pharmacy would also like to display photos and newspaper articles about the original pharmacy. The NSHS also hopes to add scanned images to its archive. In the photo. left to right, are NSHA Curator Sam Turco, Park Square Pharmacy owner Dr. Hassan Iqbal and NSHA Chief Archivist Al Menard.
