FM #193 - Franklin Senior Center Director Karen Alves talks about February 2020 Event Highlights (audio)

FM #193

This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 193 in the series and now collaborating with Franklin.TV and Franklin Public Radio (

This recording shares my conversation with Karen Alves, Director of the Franklin Senior Center. We took a few minutes to talk through what is coming up in February at the Senior Center. For example, we covered
  • Emergency Preparedness in coordination with the Norfolk County District Attorney's office
  • Skipped to March to talk about the St Patrick’s lunch
  • Fall prevention
  • Valentine’s Brunch
  • Senior Players start again playing for a performance in May
  • Dental health
  • Historian Gary Hylander (Stonehill/Bridgewater St)
  • Dementia Friendly
  • Memory cafe
  • Town Administrator Jamie Hellen
  • Heart month
  • Other regularly scheduled daily programs

Yes, we covered a goodly list of topics. I think that is the complete listing. If we missed one, let me know (via email) and we’ll find a good and worthy prize.
