Franklin Matters information service updates

As part of the integration with Franklin.TV and Franklin Public Radio (wfpr.fm) you likely have seen some changes to this home page and or to some posts.

Two additions

  • The daily schedule for Franklin TV and wfpr.fm is shared. This is in addition to the weekly post sharing the programming guide. We'll be watching the stats (such that are available) to see if this addition is making a difference.
  • "Ask Franklin Matters"  is back in a top of fold web page spot. I had introduced this when we started the "Talk Franklin" radio interview series during 2020. This is a new year, hence a new opportunity. A couple of question have already come in so that is good. Hopefully, this feature will help answer your questions. 

Two reminders

  • This is a daily digital newsletter and you have a chance to have your say (with a question - as noted above) or a comment/email. You should also know that the "Voices of Franklin" is really the same as a "Letter to the Editor". It has been used primarily during the election season but is a feature available any time you feel the need to write. Guidelines here ->  https://www.franklinmatters.org/2011/03/introducing-voices-of-franklin.html
  • The community calendar functions best when all the events are available to the community. Organizations with a Google calendar can integrate automatically. If you don't have one, you can use the form to submit the event  -> https://forms.gle/oPdi8X3ZbHHyrHzo6   If all else fails, send me an email. Be sure to include the basics of the event (who, what, when, where, etc.)

This Franklin news service (daily newsletter, podcast, Twitter, etc.) is my public service effort for Franklin but I can't do it alone. I can always use your help.

 

How can you help?

  • If you can use the information that you find here, please tell your friends and neighbors

  • If you don't like something here, please let me know


Through this feedback loop we can continue to make improvements. I thank you for reading/emailing/commenting/listening, etc.


Friendly reminder: The best way to remain informed is to subscribe for the daily newsletter -> https://www.franklinmatters.org/p/welcome.html

audio from the Franklin Matters Q&A session held on July 22, 2021

FM #587 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 587 in the series. 

This session of the radio show shares the Franklin Matters Question and Answer (Q&A) session held on July 22, 2021. The session was coordinated with Ariel Doggett of the Franklin Senior Center and conducted via Zoom. 


This is the audio recording of the brief presentation and then the Q&A discussion we had. A copy of the presentation document is linked below. 


We did have an interruption in the recording (at approx. 18 mins)  as my network connection hung up. Ariel provides a brief recap of what was discussed while I was trying to reconnect. We managed to continue without another interruption.


The August session scheduled for Aug 28, 2021 will be hybrid. I plan on being in a room at the Senior Center and make the Zoom link available for folks to participate virtually.


The recording runs about 48 minutes, so let’s listen to the Franklin Matters Question and Answer (Q&A) session.
