In September, schools re-opened, the State primary was held, and the Harvest Festival closed out the month among the many happenings and news items.
President Paula Rooney of Dean College presented to the Town Council on how much Dean does for Franklin. Located in the center of Franklin, Dean has integrated into the community. The presentation document can be viewed here:

As noted in the presentation, Franklin does receive much goodness from having Dean in the middle of town. The collaboration can continue to grow and improve. Much like the collaboration of the Franklin Food Elves with the Franklin Downtown Partnership to benefit the Franklin Food Pantry. The people of Franklin receive the real benefits of such collaboration!
