“Closing the gates for this season is heartbreaking" both King Richard’s Faire and Pawsox cancel seasons

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:
It was a “royally difficult” decision to make, but this fall’s eight-week run of the King Richard’s Faire has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The popular Renaissance-themed faire was supposed to take place Sept. 5-Oct. 25.

“Even royalty cannot beat the coronavirus,” said the faire’s longtime producer, Bonnie Shapiro who runs the operation with her daughter, Aimee Shapiro Sedley.

Shapiro and her late husband, Richard, brought the faire to Carver in 1981. Spread over 80-acres, it transports visitors to the 16th century by offering an array of performers, artisans, hand-cranked rides, knife-throwing booths, animal attractions and period food and drink (think: bloomin’ onions and yards of beer).

The Pawtucket Red Sox today confirmed that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused the cancellation of their 2020 Minor League Baseball season. International League President Randy Mobley said, “Due to the many COVID-19 related challenges that would accompany staffing team rosters for a two-month season, Major League Baseball has now advised that they will not be assigning players to the teams of Minor League Baseball in 2020.”

This year is the first in the 137-year history of the International League (founded in 1884) that no games will have been played.

The PawSox will continue their community efforts to help those affected by the coronavirus, and will continue to celebrate their 50th anniversary (1970-2020).

As Major League Baseball gears up for its season, the Boston Red Sox have discussed using McCoy Stadium as the home of some of their workouts. Schedules and details will be announced.

In the News: "Seams Like a Dream"; Franklin election candidates set

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:
"There’s something to be said for putting on costumes. They have a certain magic to them, imbuing their fabrics and accessories with the power to transform and transport.

Franklin resident Lisa Maxwell Rounds -- a teacher, drama club advisor and seamstress -- knows that better than most people. For the past 19 years she has helped drape visitors to King Richard’s Faire, Massachusetts’ annual Renaissance fair held in Carver, in that magic and has seen it at work.

She owns Seams Like A Dream, a shop that serves as King Richard’s costuming shop, and operates it with the help of her 24-year-old daughter, Emily.

“Once you put on a costume, you become someone else,” she observes. “I’ve found this with a lot of people. They sort of become a character. They come out of their shell.”

"Campaigning for the bi-biennial town election in November is expected to kick into high gear as the deadline for filing candidacies has passed.

Town Clerk Teresa Burr issued the ballot lineup on Friday after her office completed certifying nomination papers. Burr, whose position is among those up for election, is facing no challenge in her bid for re-election to a four-year term.

The entire Town Council and School Committee are up for election, and there is no dearth of candidates for either."
