In the News: superintendent search begins, miniature metal artwork

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:

"The School Committee is set to kick off its search for a new district leader this week. 
The committee is slated at its meeting Tuesday night to begin seeking a new superintendent. Current Superintendent Maureen Sabolinski announced in July she is retiring at the end of the coming school year. 
Committee members have said the meeting is the best time to start making preparations. Chairman Kevin O'Malley noted the meeting following this one - on Sept. 6 - will be the committee's first of the new school year, and is likely to be filled with other topics."

"A special exhibit will open at 1:30 p.m. Oct. 2 at the Franklin Historical Museum, 80 W. Central St., Franklin. 
A personal collection of miniature metal artwork, hand crafted by Franklin-born Abraham Megerdichian, will be on display in October. Megerdichian’s son Robert will open the exhibit with a presentation and talk about the history of his father’s work. 
In his lifetime, the elder Megerdichian, a machinist by trade, made more than 300 miniatures for family and friends as gifts for holidays and special occasions. A selection of about 20 tiny recreations of everyday objects, made from brass, aluminum, stainless-steel and copper will be on display. A sampling of items for this exhibit include a brass asphalt roller, a copper and steel cannon with cannonballs, an aluminum inkwell with feather pen, a flexible flyer sled, and tiny brass roller skates."
