In the News: Anne's Market to close; Vet Ruck Walk arrives Saturday

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

"With her husband sick at home, Anne Saunders headed down the street Saturday to grab an item that was sure to lift his spirits: an egg salad sandwich from his favorite spot. 
Saunders, of Franklin, said her husband visits Anne’s Country Market on West Central Street every few days to pick up lunch, stock up on cigarettes and beer and chat with the owners. Feeling under the weather Saturday, Doug Saunders asked his wife to bring home some comfort food from the store. 
This week marks a sad chapter for Saunders and other loyal customers of the store, who recently learned that after three decades, store owner Anne Brunelli and her family are preparing to close the market for good. 
In a message posted to Facebook last week, the business announced it would close its doors on Friday. While she’s happy to see Brunelli finally start her retirement, Anne Saunders said customers like her husband will miss the neighborhood market."

"It takes more than physical training to hike 200 miles across Massachusetts in three days carrying army sacks and armor; it also takes motivation and a purpose. 
Nine veterans, active-duty members and civilians will ruck across the state this week to spread awareness about the needs of veterans when they return home. 
“To ruck means to carry a heavy load,” founder of Warrior Thunder Foundation and event coordinator Darren Bean said. “We’ll either carry backpacks or body armor, simulating the burden that our veterans carry when they leave service.” 
The ruckers are scheduled to make their way through Natick around noon on Saturday. They plan to make a stop at the War Memorial on Main Street in Franklin to meet with veterans, citizens and officials in town at 6 p.m. Bean encourages everyone interested to attend and show their support."
