Episode 199-Vincent Anter "V is For Vino" Interview (audio & video)

Caught the recent Wonderful World of Wine podcast by Mark Lenzi and Kim Simone to find out about the wine show "V is for Vino" as they interviewed Vincent Anter.

What Mark and Kim does for audio, Vincent is expanding to video to explore all aspects of wine. A fun show to add to your video queue.

STAR/PAR session Tuesday Dec-28th @ 10am

50+ Job Seekers in MA Statewide Networking Groups

This free program is available through a grant from the Massachusetts Councils on Aging (MCOA) and the Executive Office of Elder Affairs

Session 4: STAR-PAR Stories

Tuesday December 28th: 10 am – 12 pm

Interviewers often ask candidates to display their potential value to a company by asking behavioral or competency-based questions. And most people reply with off-the-cuff answers or relate a story that is too long, too detailed, and unstructured.
 
The STAR [Situation-Task-Action-Result] and PAR [Problem-Action-Result] methods provide a proven framework for answering questions with concise, relevant, and interesting stories.
 
Why you need to know about this: Every interviewer will ask you how you applied your skills or worked effectively with team and colleagues. Your chances of impressing an interviewer—and landing the role-- rise dramatically when you employ the STAR-PAR methodologies.
 
Start your journey towards self-realization, reinvention and transformation!

Already registered and attended a session? Use the same Zoom link you received for the previous session.

There’s a large field of hopefuls this year.  Meet them all.
by Pete Fasciano, Executive Director, Franklin●TV & wfpr●fm 10/17/2021

Candidates for local office are out and about, meeting with citizens and discussing the issues. Our own Steve Sherlock and Frank Falvey have met with many of them along the way. Tune in to their comments on Franklin●TV & 102.9 wfpr●fm. Also visit FranklinMatters.org any time for all the latest. Then cast your vote on November 2nd.

Currently, there are 12 candidates for the 9 Council seats. There are also 12 candidates for School Committee. Notably, three seasoned and dedicated committee members have opted to retire their positions: Committee Chair Dr. Anne Bergen, Judy Pfeffer and Tim Keenan. As dedicated volunteers, they provided their able oversight during the difficult pandemic period. Our thanks and best wishes to them.

There is a Candidates’ Night planned – live from the Senior Center. Candidates present their credentials, goals for Franklin’s future. Watch our All-Access Channel, Comcast 8 or Verizon 26 on Thursday evening at 6:30 PM. The Conservation Commission’s meeting will be on the Town Hall channel, Comcast 11 or Verizon 29 at 7 PM as usual.

We will also be rebroadcasting these events on All-Access TV and
Town Hall TV until the election. Check next week’s guide for details.
