Franklin Rotary sidewalk chalkfest challenge a success

Wrentham Factory Outlet customers were treated to a display of talented chalk artists as they shopped last Saturday. 

The show was sponsored by the Franklin Rotary Club and Simon Properties, owners of the Wrentham Outlet, with cash and trophies awarded to the winners in the adult and children's categories. 

Overall winner was Kerry St.Pierre who won both the judges' award and the people's award divisions. Other adult cash prizes went to Lee Ball (2nd) and Sarah Anzalone (3rd). 

This was the first time this was done at the Wrentham Outlets and should become even more impressive next year--Cambridge and Providence Rotary Clubs have excellent shows at their local Simon Properties

In the News: Police hosting Halloween party, EPA visits DPW in outreach on superfund site

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:
"After being gone for several years, the Franklin Police Department's Halloween party will be rising from the grave this weekend. 
The free event - intended to provide thrills and entertainment for preschoolers through fifth-graders - will run on Sunday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the station on Panther Way. 
Detective Eric Copeland, one of the officers organizing the party, said the event itself will feature officers dressed up as superheroes, a bounce house, face painting and pumpkin painting. A "spooky trail" will run along the walking path next to the station. 
There will also, Copeland said, be a variety of food, including popcorn, cotton candy and hot dogs."

"The federal Environmental Protection Agency will be returning to town to continue its outreach efforts on a local Superfund site.
 
Representatives from the agency will be at the Fisher Street Department of Public Works building on Monday, to get public comment on the BJAT, LLC property, which is also on Fisher Street. 
"We will be there all day," said Marilyn St. Fleur, a community involvement coordinator for the EPA. "We'll have an availability session for individuals who are interested in the site as well." 
Agency representatives came to Franklin earlier this month and held a series of appointments to determine the best way to inform the public of developments. St. Fleur said Monday's visit would feature scheduled meetings as well, but that there would be an open session (from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.) for those who simply wish to know more."

EPA Staff Will be in Franklin Monday, Oct. 31 to Discuss BJAT Site with Community Members

EPA will host an availability session for Franklin residents interested to discuss the BJAT Superfund Site. The session will be held on Monday, October 31, 2016 from 2:30 – 4:00 PM at the Franklin Department of Public Works located at 257 Fisher Street, Franklin, Mass.

On Sept. 30, 2015, EPA add the BJAT site, located at 300 Fisher Street in Franklin, to the "National Priorities List" of Superfund sites. The Superfund program, a federal program established by Congress in 1980, investigates and cleans up the most complex, uncontrolled or abandoned hazardous waste sites in the country and converts them into productive local resources by eliminating or reducing health risks and environmental contamination associated with hazardous waste sites.

Beginning in the late 1800s, the BJAT LLC site, was used for industrial operations including the manufacturing of rubber and plastic products. The property, inactive since 1985, contains areas of process waste and debris. Further, soil, sediment and ground water are contaminated with lead, mercury and zinc as well as semi-volatile organic compounds.

In the Shadow of Ludwig Van: Claflin Hill's 17th Season Opener-- Saturday, Nov. 5th at 7:30 p.m.





Claflin Hill's season opener!!! Saturday, Nov. 5th at 7:30 p.m.
In the Shadow of Ludwig Van

The week before a concert, particularly a season opening concert, is always full of anticipation at Claflin Hill.

Musicians have received the music in the mail and next Tuesday night, they will assemble at Milford Town Hall to begin their rehearsals.  (I'm always so impressed that Paul pulls together concerts of the magnitude of CHSO with just 3 rehearsals; that truly speaks to the caliber of our professional musicians!)  Next Tuesday night is very much like a family reunion. Many of our musicians have not seen each other since the season finale last April.  There's so much catching up to do, but the real task at hand is to prepare a program that will entertain YOU, the audience, while it is also sure to inspire, educate and enlighten, too. 

We are grateful to the concert sponsors: Medway Oil & Propane, Homefield Credit Union and Milford Water Company.  Their ongoing support makes our program possible.

In the News: Sec of Energy takes a bike ride; School Committee stands against Question 2

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

"Local residents, town officials and state legislators lobbied for state support in an unusual way: by going on a bike ride. 
The group guided Matthew Beaton, the Massachusetts Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs, down the town's portion of the Southern New England Trunkline Trail (SNETT) Wednesday afternoon. Their aim was to garner support for a tunnel beneath Prospect Street, which would connect the trail to a wider network of bike paths. 
State Rep. Jeffrey Roy, D-Franklin, said the group was hoping to convince Beaton to bring its concerns to Gov. Charlie Baker. 
"It's a nice trail all the way, until you get to Prospect Street," he said, estimating that the intersection was about 1.25 miles from the trail's Grove Street entrance. "There, it's a steep climb up - you can't ride it."

"Citing the town's key role in American public education, the School Committee took a position against a charter-school ballot question in the November election. 
The committee at its meeting Tuesday night voted unanimously against Question 2, a ballot measure that would lift the cap on charter schools in the state. 
Several of those who spoke on the matter mentioned that Franklin is the birthplace of Horace Mann, regarded as the father of public education in the U.S., and that they believed the referendum, if passed, would go against the principles he supported. 
Committee member Anne Bergen said she believed the measure would create schools that were not subject to public oversight."

FPAC presents "The Odd Couple"

Franklin Performing Arts Company (FPAC) presents Neil Simon’s hilarious The Odd Couple on November 4 and 5 at 7:30 p.m., with a Sunday matinee on November 6 at 2:00. Directed by Aaron Andrade, FPAC’s production will be staged at THE BLACK BOX in downtown Franklin as part of the company’s 26th season.

A classic American comedy by one of the most produced playwrights of the twentieth century, The Odd Couple is an epic mismatch of personalities, as an incompatible pair of suddenly single pals becomes roommates. Thrown out by his wife, the fastidious and uptight news writer, Felix Unger, moves in with the slovenly sportswriter, Oscar Madison, recently divorced. Unsure why their marriages fell apart, the friends repeat the same mistakes with each other – with hysterical results. The Odd Couple won the 1965 Tony Award for Best Author of a Play and was a Best Play nominee. The renowned buddy tale is the original play behind the hit TV sitcom and film.

Tickets are $24. For more information or to purchase tickets, call (508) 528-3370 or visit www.FPAConline.com. The Odd Couple is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
