Franklin Historical Museum: "Something Borrowed, Something Blue" and Photo Scanning Party- Jul 8

The bridal gown exhibit at the Franklin Historical Museum continues through the months of July and August. 14 beautiful gowns are on display that cover one hundred years of fashion. Our earliest gowns date back to the 1890s with their high fashion leg of mutton sleeves and whale bone enhanced bodices. Our 1990’s gown, worn by Cheryl Vendetti, brings back that one hundred year old fashion of the large puffy sleeves made popular again by Princess Diana. 

Three generations from one family are represented in the gowns worn by Gemma Crosta, Debbie Pellegri and Rona Pellegri. The unique and popular parachute gown, worn by Emma Velluti Rabioli is on display again this year. It was very sad to learn of Emma’s recent passing, but we are honored to have her silk parachute gown, and story, at the museum. Emma’s dress, with its simple design yet impressive 15 foot train, is so large, it has its own room to be able to see its full size. Also on display are the gowns worn by Franklin icon, Stella Jeon and beloved teacher, Palma Johnson.

The Second Sunday Speaker Series will focus on our wedding theme during the exhibit. Something Borrowed Something Blue is a presentation on wedding traditions, superstitions, fashions and cultural influences over time. Why does the bride throw her bouquet? A piece of cake under your pillow? Does rain on your wedding day bring good luck? When did brides start wearing white? Find out Sunday July 8th at 1:15PM for this fun and interesting presentation on the history of wedding traditions and fashions.

Also on July 8th, the Franklin Historical Museum invites you to join us for our first Photo Scanning Party. We’d love to see your family wedding photos, so bring them in to have them scanned and added to the museum’s photo collection. Borrowing on the idea from other area historical museums, and their success in collecting photos and preserving local history, we encourage Franklin residents to share their photographic history with us. For this first scanning party, Franklin residents can bring in their family wedding photos, have them scanned, and preserved within our photo collection. Tell us the story that goes with the photo, names, dates, location and your family will become part of our shared history.

The Franklin Historical Museum is located at 80 West Central Street. Admission is always free and we are handicap accessible.

Gold Medal Win Propels Tegra Medical Co-op to National SkillsUSA Competition

How do you top a silver medal? If you’re Ethan Blake you top it with a gold!

Ethan is a junior at Blackstone Valley Tech, a vocational high school in Upton, Massachusetts USA and a co-op in Tegra Medical’s Accupoint department where he uses a Computer Numeric Control (CNC) machine to grind intricate points on different types of medical needles. He earned his medals in a competition for high school students called SkillsUSA, which is a partnership of education and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce.

SkillsUSA holds competitive events in which students participate, initially at a local level, then progressing to state and national events. Ethan participated in the CNC Milling Specialist category, which is part of the manufacturing sector. 

The other sectors encompass 102 diverse skills such as graphic design, carpentry, plumbing, welding, nursing, culinary arts, information technology, robotics, and firefighting. “SkillsUSA is an amazing program,” says Ken Giacomuzzi, Tegra Medical Tool Crib Coordinator and a volunteer with SkillsUSA. “It helps kids be job-ready immediately after they graduate.”

Much to his own surprise, Ethan aced a written test to win a silver medal in his local district’s competition in March – his first time competing. This qualified him for the Massachusetts state competition in April. He prepared by honing his programming skills, which until then had been largely self-taught. This effort paid off, as the competition included two hours of programming a part on a simulator, followed by 15 minutes of execution to see if it ran successfully.
“I was the last one to do the test,” noted Ethan. “We didn’t get any feedback until the award ceremony the next day. But I felt pretty confident. I really enjoy programming, and I had time to test my work before my two hours was up.”

 During the execution phase the program ran flawlessly, earning Ethan a perfect score, a gold medal and a ticket to the national competition in Kentucky June 25. To top it off, local college New England Tech grants scholarships to gold medal winners.

Ethan is excited about competing at the national level where he’ll be joined by his parents and brother, as well as his friend and classmate Jack Mandella, whose gold medal in welding also earned him a spot in the competition. “We are proud, excited and not surprised at his success,” says Ethan’s boss at Tegra Medical, Tom Rabe. “From day one he’s been a model employee who absorbed and picked up the job quicker than we ever imagined. He’s proven, especially with winning gold at SkillsUSA, that the sky is the limit for him.” About Tegra Medical.

"a groundbreaking victory for Americans’ privacy rights"

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:
"The Supreme Court ruled Friday that police generally need a search warrant if they want to track criminal suspects’ movements by collecting information about where they’ve used their cellphones, bolstering privacy interests in the digital age. 
The justices’ 5-4 decision marks a big change in how police may obtain cellphone tower records, an important tool in criminal investigations. 
Chief Justice John Roberts, joined by the court’s four liberals, said cellphone location information “is detailed, encyclopedic and effortlessly compiled.” Roberts wrote that “an individual maintains a legitimate expectation of privacy in the record of his physical movements” as they are captured by cellphone towers. 
Roberts said the court’s decision is limited to cellphone tracking information and does not affect other business records, including those held by banks."

Tri-County Carpentry Students Visit McGovern Elementary in Medway

Woodworking, from custom-made cabinetry and furniture to unique wooden pieces, is the fine art of the construction trade. The beautiful thing about woodworking is that it can be done by all ages. Whether young, old, or somewhere in between, there are woodworking projects to fit any skill level. Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School Carpentry students often work on a variety of woodworking projects to refine their skills in milling, sizing, designing, installing and finishing.

One of the assignments the Tri-County Carpentry students were tasked with was to create a pre-cut wooden tool box kit. The finished kits would then be assembled by first graders at the McGovern Elementary School in Medway. As a finishing touch, the wooden tool boxes were to be engraved with each first grader's name. This required the Carpentry students to utilize a CNC router. Then they needed to ensure each tool box kit contained safety glasses, a tape measure and screw driver.

Once the tool boxes were ready to go, Tri-County Carpentry juniors visited the first grade class at the McGovern Elementary School in Medway where they instructed and helped the students to assemble the tool box.

"We were impressed with how well the first grade students worked safely with the tools and took to the woodworking project, said Madison Hughes, a Tri-County junior from North Attleboro. "They were a great class."

"All of the first grade students caught on quickly, and were so excited to see their names on their toolboxes, said Rebecca Wendtland, a Tri-County junior from Plainville.

"The carpentry students utilized traditional craftsmanship skills along with modern technology to bring the project together," said Jeremy Barstow, Carpentry Instructor at Tri-County. "Students really enjoyed preparing the kits for each first grader, and overall it was a very fun and interactive event for all."

After putting the tool box together, Tri-County students taught the first graders about the high school's Tools for Success, including the school's new core values which are Trust, Character, Professionalism, Responsibility, Integrity, Dedication and Empowerment (TC PRIDE). They explained to the first graders what each word meant and had an interactive session discussing how those words can be used for success in school. The first-graders were given the laminated TC PRIDE words to add to their new tool boxes.

Tri-County RVTHS, located at 147 Pond Street in Franklin, is a recipient of the High Schools That Work Gold Achievement Award and serves the communities of Franklin, Medfield, Medway, Millis, Norfolk, North Attleboro, Plainville, Seekonk, Sherborn, Walpole, and Wrentham.

MassBudget: Caring for Kids


June 19, 2018

Caring for Kids: Majority of Massachusetts Children Have Benefitted from MassHealth Programs

MassHealth insurance plays a crucial role in providing health coverage and health care security for the children of Massachusetts, insuring more than half of the Commonwealth's children at some point each year. Health insurance is crucial for ensuring access to necessary health care services. When children don't have health insurance, they are more likely to go without needed medical care, go without needed medications, and are more likely to miss preventive health care visits.
In 2017, more than half - 57 percent - of the Commonwealth's children received health insurance coverage from MassHealth according to new data released by the federal Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services. This number includes approximately 555,000 children covered by Medicaid at some point in 2017, and 220,000 children covered by CHIP. For some of these children, MassHealth provides primary coverage; and for others, MassHealth supplements other insurance. MassHealth covers a wide range of children, including MassHealth Standard for those in low-income families, CHIP coverage for children in families with incomes up to three times the official poverty level (approximately $75,300 for a family of four), and CommonHealth coverage at a sliding fee scale for children with disabilities at all incomes.
Although Massachusetts lawmakers are currently debating proposals to reform health insurance payment and delivery systems, and there has been debate over the extent of MassHealth coverage for adults, the state's coverage of children is a recognized success. As a result of decades' long commitment to health reform and coverage expansions, Massachusetts continues to lead the nation in providing almost universal health insurance to children. Based on the most recent available U.S. census figures, 99 percent of children under age 19 in Massachusetts have health insurance.
 MassBudget: Caring for Kids 1
The Massachusetts Budget and Policy Center (MassBudget) produces policy research, analysis, and data-driven recommendations focused on improving the lives of low- and middle-income children and adults, strengthening our state's economy, and enhancing the quality of life in Massachusetts.

Teenage Classic Rock Band SOAR to Host Fundraiser to Benefit Best Buddies - July 8

SOAR wanted to make their July 8th, 2018 show at the Foxboro Orpheum Theater (Marilyn Rodman Performing Arts Center) a bit more special, and decided to turn their show into a fundraiser with the goal of benefiting other kids. 

From June 8th through July 8th, SOAR is giving back to the community by performing at a number of fundraising events, including two Relay for Life events (fundraisers for American Cancer Society; Attleboro and Medway, MA) and a fundraiser for Gilly’s House ( a residential program for young men struggling to recover from addiction). 

While SOAR is honored to provide entertainment for these great fundraisers, SOAR’n for Best Buddies is distinct because this event was conceived and organized by SOAR. The band discussed a number of potential beneficiaries for the fundraiser, but quickly decided on Best Buddies ( as one of SOAR’s band members has a sibling who benefited from the Best Buddies program while in high school. 

This fundraising event gives the band an opportunity to give back to an organization that has helped so many, including a band member’s sister.

About the Event

This is a concert fundraiser to benefit Best Buddies, featuring live classic rock music as performed by SOAR. The fundraiser is on Sunday July 8th; the music starts at 6:30 PM and the show will run for 2+ hours. In addition to being a fundraiser, the show is also intended to be a fun event for Best Buddies. To ensure that our Best Buddies guests can all enjoy the show, SOAR will not use any strobe lights and foam earplugs will be available at no cost.

The pre-show meet and greet pizza party with the band (and any special guests) starts at 5 PM. This event includes pizza and drinks (non-alcoholic); pictures with the band (and any special guests) and first-choice seating via early entry into the theater (see ticket information below).

Last day of school and learning continues!

Yes, it is the last day of school for most of Franklin. Keller/Sullivan finishes on Friday (June 22) due to the water problem they had earlier this school year that caused them to miss two days. 

Learning, however, needs to continue through the summer and even for adults every day. If you stop learning, you'll fall behind and may not be able to catch up.

Shane Parrish has this interview on learning that is well worth listening to.
"In this interview, Barbara Oakley, 8-time author and creator of Learning to Learn, an online course with over a million enrolled students, shares the science and strategies to learn more quickly, overcome procrastination and get better at practically anything."

James Montgomery Band Returns To THE BLACK BOX - Jun 22

THE BLACK BOX, downtown Franklin’s theater, music, and event venue, presents the renowned James Montgomery Band on Friday, June 22 at 8 p.m.

Blues legend James Montgomery plays with authority. While growing up in Detroit, he learned firsthand from the masters – James Cotton, John Lee Hooker, and Jr. Wells – at the legendary “Chessmate.” Over the years, Montgomery has carried on in the tradition and continues to be a vital presence in Blues as one of the most dynamic performers on the scene.

He formed the James Montgomery Band in 1970 while attending Boston University. Montgomery’s inimitable harmonica playing, combined with his energetic live shows, led to the band’s quick ascension on the New England music scene. Within two years, the James Montgomery Band was among the hottest acts in Boston, along with J. Geils and Aerosmith, and they were quickly signed to a multi-album deal with Capricorn records.

Since that time, Montgomery has recorded six albums. His first, First Time Out, has been re-mastered and re-released by MRG/Capricorn. Others include James Montgomery Band on Island Records, which was number nine on Billboard’s national playlist; Duck Fever, with members of the David Letterman Band; Live Trax, with the Uptown Horns (the Rolling Stones’ horn section); and his release on Tone-Cool, The Oven Is On.

Montgomery has toured with major artists including Aerosmith, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen, the Allman Brothers, Steve Miller and others. He has jammed on stage with B.B. King, Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, Jr. Wells, James Cotton, Charlie Daniels, Bonnie Raitt, Gregg Allman, Laverne Baker, Patti LaBelle, and Peter Wolf, among others, including an impromptu session with Mick Jagger at New York’s “Trax.”

Over the years, Montgomery’s band has been a springboard for many musicians, with members having included Billy Squire, Wayne Kramer (MC-5), Jeff Golub (Rod Stewart), Jim McCarty (Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels), Jeff Pevar (Ray Charles Orchestra and Crosby, Stills & Nash), Bobby Chouinard (drummer with Ted Nugent, Squire, and Robert Gordon), Jeff Levine (Joe Cocker), Aerosmith’s Tom Gambel, and many others.

Tickets are $25. THE BLACK BOX, home of the Franklin Performing Arts Company (FPAC), is located at 15 West Central Street. A cash bar is available. For tickets and more information, visit or call (508) 528-3370.

“We’re definitely going to celebrate this one"

Josh Perry, Managing Editor of, provides the game recap of Franklin High School's Super 8 championship win. FHS went through the Super 8 tournament undefeated and beat Central Catholic 3-2.

"In the bottom of the eighth inning in Monday night’s Super 8 final at Brockton’s Campanelli Stadium, it looked like Central Catholic had finally figured out Franklin starter Bryan Woelfel. A single and a double put two runners in scoring position with nobody out in a tie game. 
Franklin coach Zach Brown decided that he needed to make a change and called in third baseman Jake Noviello. The Fairfield University-commit had been warming up during the Panthers at-bats just in case and was now called on to try and get out of the ultimate high-leverage situation. 
“We had a shot,” said Brown about how he felt bringing in his ace in that situation. “I felt like it was a spot in the order and just knowing Jake and knowing his competitiveness I thought we had a shot.” 
Noviello explained, “I pitched against them the other day and I got hit around in one inning, so I knew to just come at them tonight and just try to gas them up.” He added with a shake of his head, as the accomplishment settled in, “It’s unbelievable, unbelievable.”
