From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin

Santa Claus is coming to town this Sunday to preside over a tree lighting at the Town Common. 
The event - set for Sunday, Nov. 29, at 4 p.m. - will see the lights, strung by the Department of Public Works, come aglow and the season officially start. 
Barbara Rondeau, who organizes the tree lighting, said the town has been holding the event for the past 22 years. 
"When Santa comes to the common on a firetruck ... at that time, we do the lighting," she said. "He sits on the bandstand and each child gets a gift."
