Franklin's Event Outlook: June 17, 2022 to June 23, 2022

School students are getting closer to the last day and their summer reading kick off occurs today at the Library and the Farmers Market. Concerts at THE BLACK BOX and Library add some variety to the relatively quiet weekend (compared to the busyness of last week's ArtWEEK and Strawberry Stroll events).

If you have heard about the history enshrined in our state seal and flag, you might be concerned about changing it. An event on Tuesday will help share info on the efforts underway to do so.

  1. I'm in favor of changing our state seal and flag to something more appropriate. Massachusetts has a great history and a diverse population. Why settle for a scene of oppression to represent who we are?
