A Franklin Treasure - Elizabeth's Bagels (audio)

FM #457 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 457 in the series. 

This session of the radio show shares my conversation with Jen Garcia of Elizabeth’s Bagels. We had our conversation via conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

We talk about: 
  • A quick background on Elizabeth’s Bagels
  • Adjustments made and being made during this COVID-19 pandemic
  • As a small businesses some issues with 3rd party delivery companies
Links to Elizabeth's Bagels webpage are included in the show notes. The recording runs about 18 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Jen.


--------------

Find Elizabeth’s Bagels at 456 West Central Street, Franklin

We are now producing this in collaboration with Franklin.TV and Franklin Public Radio (wfpr.fm).

HELLO VETERANS!

It's hard to believe November (and Election Day!) is right around the corner! As most of you know, the Franklin Senior Center is still closed to the public. Dale and Debra continue to work from home and the office on alternating days.

We hope you and your families are remaining healthy and safe by wearing face coverings and observing social distancing guidelines when out in public. Remember to wash your hands thoroughly after going to the store or appointments. Keeping hand sanitizer in your car is a good idea too!

Flu shots are available at local pharmacies. If you're over 65, you may want to call ahead to be sure your pharmacy has the high-dose influenza vaccine in stock.

The Veterans' Office will be hosting our monthly coffee social via Zoom on Wednesday, November 4 at 10:00 AM

We hope you can join us for veterans' updates and conversation with fellow veterans! Feel free to extend the invitation to other veterans who may not be on our contact list.

If you have not participated in a Zoom call yet, you'll need to download the Zoom app on your device before joining us.

VisualCapitalist: "What Does The Coffee Supply Chain Look Like?"

 

"There’s a good chance your day started with a cappuccino, or a cold brew, and you aren’t alone. In fact, coffee is one of the most consumed drinks on the planet, and it’s also one of the most traded commodities.

According to the National Coffee Association, more than 150 million people drink coffee on a daily basis in the U.S. alone. Globally, consumption is estimated at over 2.25 billion cups per day.

But before it gets to your morning cup, coffee beans travel through a complex global supply chain. Today’s illustration from Dan Zettwoch breaks down this journey into 10 distinct steps."

June VIRTUAL or IN-PERSON Coffee Social

Join us Wednesday, June 3, 2020 at 10:00 a.m.

Our May VIRTUAL Coffee Social was a success! There were 18 guests in attendance via Zoom, a free video-conferencing tool.

It was great to see so many of our veterans on-screen and know that they are staying healthy and safe. We were also joined by our friend Courtney, a dedicated Starbucks Associate who assists us at our monthly Coffee Socials. Starbucks continues to be such a generous community partner and we can't thank Courtney and the rest of the Route 140 Starbucks team enough!

We are not sure when the Senior Center will re-open but we plan to host the June Coffee Social either in-person or virtually via Zoom. 

Stay tuned for updates on this web site!
