FM #344 Franklin Senior Center - September Updates - 9/01/20 (audio)

FM #344 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 344 in the series. 

This session shares my conversation with outgoing Senior Center Director Karen Alves and incoming Director Erin Rogers. Our conversation was conducted via conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

In case you missed it along the way, Karen is retiring Sep 17. There will be a socially distanced party in the parking lot to see her off. Details are in the September newsletter.

We also review a number of the activities during September, mostly conducted virtually but some careful steps are being made to move safely to an in person where possible.

Reminder to call the Senior Center to register for an event, to get on the mailing list, or to order from the Curbside Cafe.
