"this is a great opportunity to collect clothes for those who need it"

Josh Perry, Managing Editor of HockomockSports.com, provides the story on the Hockomock indoor tracks teams drive to support a good cause:

This winter, Hockomock League teams are not only competing on the track at the Reggie Lewis Center, but are also in a friendly competition off it. Teams are racing to collect new and gently used clothing that will be donated to the non-profit organization Cradles to Crayons to help families in need throughout the Boston and Metrowest areas.

The brainchild of Sharon athletes and MIAA student ambassadors Berta Faktorovich and Jacob Durbin, this is not an ordinary call for donations. The teams have been organized into a competition to see which program can collect the most. Certain items of clothing are worth more points than others, for example sweatshirts, coats, ski pants, and jackets are worth three points and t-shirts, socks, gloves, and hats are worth one.

Clothes are being collected at each of the league’s track meets, as all the teams gather together at the Reggie Lewis Center. Through the first two meets, North Attleboro was in the lead with 197 points and Sharon was close behind in second at 179.

The idea of using fun competition as a means for drawing interest in helping a local charity stemmed from an MIAA student ambassador huddle. “In small groups, we were talking about how having an incentive can encourage more people to bring in donations,” Faktorovich explained. “I then realized how great it would be to have a competition among the winter tracks teams for a clothing drive.”

Curbside Clothing Starts November 11, 2019

Curbside Clothing Starts November 11, 2019

Franklin is pleased to announce that a curbside clothing recycling program will begin starting November 11, 2019. The company doing the recycling is called Simplerecycling More information about the company can be found on their web page  https://simplerecycling.com/.

DPW Director Brutus Cantoreggi and Chris White made a presentation to the Town Council on Sep 18,2019 on the Clothing Recycling Program to be started in November. 

This is another option to recycle, folks can still use the other non-profit recyclers that they have.


The key benefit for Franklin in implementing this curbside option: For those who want to recycle clothing this way, we can remove it from the solid waste stream and improve our recycle contamination rates.

This curbside option makes it easier for folks to help remove clothing from the solid waste stream. For those who want to call or deliver the clothing, etc. themselves to the other non-profits, they can continue to do so. 

it is a weekly program, bags will be coming via mail.

Everything can go in the same bag for convenience. See the listing of acceptable items.

Town Council Recap -Sep 18, 2019

Due to a work commitment for a 9 PM meeting, I did 'real time' reporting for the Town Council meeting of Wednesday, Sep 18, 2019. From the comfort of my home office, I reported on the meeting capturing notes and photos from the broadcast on my laptop. Fortunately, the meeting ended just before 9 and I was able to swivel my seat to my 'work from home desk' and dial into the conference call on schedule.


  • Franklin Police Department had two new hires sworn in: John Godino and David Ricci. Nick Palmieri was recognized with a promotion to Detective. Daniel McGlynn was recognized for his 27 years of service on the force. 
  • Franklin Fire Department EMS Lieutenant William Blanchard was sworn in.

The often rescheduled public hearing for the Zoning Bylaw Amendment 19-837: Zoning Map Changes From General Residential V to Single Family Residential IV an Area on or Near West Central Street was closed at this meeting.It appeared that the Council simply wanted to close the public hearing without doing anything. A couple of people did speak on the record. Including the individual with the proposal currently involved in a law suit over his proposal for this location with the Planning Board. 

One of the draw backs of being remote for the meeting was that I could not talk with anyone to really find out what was going on. So there will likely be more to come on this item.

A set of presentations on the Historical Museum (document shared) and on the DPW 'tree warden' as well as the new textile recycling program beginning in November were shared. The presentation documents are included in the links below. 

I'll create an audio file of the tree warden presentation to share soon. In the meantime, the Franklin TV recording is available for replay.

All clothing should be ready for a person to wear, in-style, clean, pressed and on hangers.

In the News: clothing drive recognized, summer school for kindergarten, scholarships before college

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin


"Students from Jefferson Elementary School were recognized by local legislators for their work in organizing and conducting a pajama and sock clothing drive for foster children. 
State Rep. Jeffrey Roy, D-Franklin, and state Sen. Richard Ross, R-Wrentham, were at the school Friday to present the children - members of the student council - with citations honoring their work. 
Assistant Principal Sarah Klim said the council had come up with the idea, wrote a proposal for it, decorated a collection box and designed fliers advertising the drive."

We are in those middle school years where he's not quite close to college, but he's also no longer a little boy. 
College is starting to become more of a weekly conversation topic as we try and contextualize why it's important to do homework and have math skills, and even how sports and being on time for practice is relevant to those college years. Keeping college as a topic of conversation provides a vision into the future for our kids – one that allows us to be able to dream together and talk about how what they are learning today will make a difference later on."
