Why are there multiple calendars?
There is a Cultural events calendar upon which other community events are layered to create the Community calendar.

Respectfully, the Library and Senior Center calendars are too full of events to include all their events so we tend to focus on the major events. Town and School meetings are also kept separate. Links for all the calendars are shared here:

The Cultural calendar displays only the cultural events

Tracey's story, to blog or not to blog

Via Tracey at The Little Shop of Oils starts a blog called "The Little Corner"

A special note from me…๐Ÿงก

Hey everyone, Tracey here. I’ve been working on something deeply personal and important to me, and today, I’m both excited and terrified to share it with you.✨

To blog or not to blog…that’s been the question for a long time.๐Ÿค”

I’ve kept this part of my story tucked away, hidden behind the scenes, but now, I’ve realized that vulnerability is a strength, not a weakness. So, despite the twisting in my stomach, I’m taking a leap of faith.✨

My first blog dives into a journey close to my heart – navigating life with MS while running The Little Shop. It’s my story of challenges, triumphs, and the raw realities of balancing health and entrepreneurship…

Thank you so much for following along and for your endless support …it means the world to me ❤️

Franklin TV: Breakfast Anytime!

We’re in the kitchen with Linda Waters.

by Pete Fasciano, Executive Director 07/07/2024 

The advertising world claims that:
“ Breakfast –
It’s the most important meal of the day.”
Linda Waters
Linda Waters

Uh-huh. Hence, the Pop-tart ? We can do better, people.

That is precisely what Linda Waters did during our recent day in the kitchen. She made breakfast magic with some new twists on bacon (literally).

And, her take on pancakes and potatoes? Yes! They were totally to die for.

We must note, incidentally, that there is no difficulty scheduling our staff to work on our cooking shows.
Gee! I wonder why.

They already have their sights (and their taste buds) set on Linda’s next scheduled production in mid-July.

If you have talent in the kitchen and a desire to share your skills – know that our hungry crew is highly motivated to make your cooking show dreams come true. Just give us a call. We will make it happen.

Thanks for listening to 102.9 wfpr●fm. 
And – as always – thanks for watching.
