WESTERLY, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Washington Trust and RI Monthly Magazine announced today that Raymond Cooney of Cranston is the March winner of I Luv Rhode Island’s 2013 photo contest. The theme of the March contest was “Only in Rhode Island” and Cooney’s photograph depicted Betsey Williams’ cottage. The photo has been published in the March 2013 issue of RI Monthly.
“Ray’s photo reminds of us that history, as well as the beauty our state has to offer.”
