"A plumbing issue over the weekend closed the town's senior center, but officials are hoping to re-open it shortly.
Town Councilor Thomas Mercer, the chairman of the Senior Center Building Committee, said the building had a sprinkler head break on Sunday. The sprinkler, he said, was located in a first-floor closet, which suffered water damage as a result.
According to Mercer, the town has been cleaning up the damage, and plans to once again open the center to the public by next week.
The center recently underwent a renovation of its second floor, holding a grand opening for the area last month. Mercer said the renovated area was not affected by the problem."

And from the Senior Center page on the Town of Franklin site:
"A pipe burst last weekend during the cold snap, flooding the first floor. We are drying the carpets and replacing the floor molding. We anticipate reopening on Monday March 13 at 8:30am. Thank you for your patience!"
