Norfolk/Wrentham - Local Town Pages

Celebrate Wrentham 350 at the Franklin Historical Museum.

We are pleased to host our neighbors and friends from Wrentham for our Second Sunday Speaker Series, November 12.
Wrentham has had a year-long celebration of the incorporation of the town in 1673. Ed Goddard, head of the Wrentham 350 Committee will share information on the committee formation, fundraising, merchandising and events over the past year.   
Events throughout the year have included a Brunch at the Senior Center, St. Patrick’s Day Celebration, William Sweatt Day, the town’s Birthday Party on the common, their Grand Parade, the Time Capsule Burial and their upcoming Gala Ball scheduled for December at Lake Pearl Ballroom.
Ed will present photos of their various events, the ins and outs of planning, and hopefully share lessons learned.
Historians will know Franklin was once part of Wrentham, known as Wrentham’s Western Precinct, before breaking off and establishing our own town in 1778. This event will be of interest to all who want to wish our neighbors a Happy Birthday and specifically to any civic minded folks from Franklin interested in learning more about Wrentham’s celebration as we look ahead to our 250th in 5 years’ time.
Help us give a warm welcome to our neighbors and join us Sunday November 12. Doors open 1 p.m. and presentation starts at 1:15. Admission is always free.
When attending a museum event, please consider donating a non-perishable food item to be collected at the museum and donated to the Franklin Food Pantry.
