Providence, RI – What is it about Rhode Island that keeps so many of us planted here? For many, there's a deep sense of rootedness that comes from living in, and being a part of, a community's rich traditions and customs. For Nina Murphy, being part of Bristol's annual, and storied, Fourth of July Parade has taught her what community and tradition are all about.
Nina Murphy is a writer who lives in Bristol with her husband, Bart Ferris, and their two children. Murphy also handles marketing and sales for a family business, Wicked Natural, which makes a line of all natural gourmet condiments, sauces, dips and jams.
