In the News: Dancing on Dean; Interim budget for MA consideration

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

"Kevin R. Goffe, president and CEO of Dean Bank, announces that Dean Bank will continue Dancing on Dean, its free summer concert series, for the second year on Friday.

Dancing on Dean is a “block party-style” event taking place in the bank’s 21 Main St. back parking lot, complete with live music, beer and wine, local restaurants offering food for purchase and fun. It’s something Goffe has dreamed of doing in downtown for years.

“Through the efforts and cooperation of town officials, the Franklin Downtown Partnership, the Franklin School for the Performing Arts, other local businesses and our employees, we’re excited to be able to announce that the next Dancing on Dean will take place on Friday July 19 from 6-9 p.m.,” he said.

Each Dancing on Dean features a live band throughout the evening and dancing is encouraged. Goffe hopes local bands will become interested in playing in front of a hometown crowd, in a family-friendly environment as the event gains momentum."

“Based on the current status of the negotiations, the Speaker feels it would be prudent for the Governor to file a 1/12th budget for August to ensure the Commonwealth’s fiscal obligations are met,” DeLeo spokeswoman Catherine Williams told the News Service in a statement."
