    STATE HOUSE — The Rocky Point Foundation, which advocates and supports the public access and enjoyment of the former amusement park, unveiled the design of a specialty license plate Tuesday, the proceeds from which will support the foundation.

    Rep. Joseph J. Solomon Jr. (D-Dist. 22, Warwick), whose legislation created the plate, was on hand for the unveiling, along with Rep. Camille F.J. Vella-Wilkinson (D-Dist. 21, Warwick) and Senate Majority Leader Michael J. McCaffrey (D-Dist. 29, Warwick).

    “Rocky Point is a place we all know and love,” said Solomon. “With the Rocky Point Foundation trying so hard to preserve the spirit of Rocky Point, these license plates will give everyone the opportunity not only to support the foundation financially, but to show their pride and help preserve the memory of every Rhode Islander’s favorite summertime playground.”

    The design, created by Skye Whelpley (West Warwick High School,) is titled “Walking the Path,” with the Rocky Point Arch on the left, pictured in full casting a shadow, the walking path that runs past it detailed in the rest of the drawing.

    Three Warwick Area Career and Technical School students were finalists in the contest to create the artwork the plate. Whelpley’s was chosen by more than 3,500 voters on the Rocky Point Foundation’s contest voting page,

    The other student artists included Anthony Lescarbeau of West Warwick High School and Meaghan Marcus of Toll Gate High School. Whelpley, who has since graduated, was not in attendance at the unveiling.

    Displaying the new Rocky Point Foundation plate on your car would require a $40 issuance surcharge for those individuals ordering them, with $20 going to the Rocky Point Foundation and $20 to the state’s general fund. A $10 surcharge for annual renewal of the plates would go directly to the foundation.
