Neighbors: Enjoy the beautiful weather
Looks like it’s going to be a beautiful week. Temperatures are supposed to be in the mid 70s and 80s, with maybe a little rain mid-week. Get out there and see Franklin County. Can you believe fall is just around the corner?
I’m sorry this column is so short today, but my dad is back in the hospital and I’ll be traveling to Boston at least a couple of days this week.
Take care and be well.
