After watching a DPW truck number 410 wait until I was almost finished shoveling to come by and laugh while plowing right back where I shoveled. That is just one of many things I have found in this to...wn lately that this soon-to-be city is going down the drain. Very sad See More

I'm curious if the new trash pick up program was voted on or just implemented? How many trash pick up guys will be out of a job because of these new machines? It's bad enough you won't even pick up ex...tra recyclables that don't fit in the small container that we are required to use. See More

Ever since the new traffic lights were installed by the cvs that no one wanted in the first place, traffic is twice as bad as it usually is. Right now, 10am on a Tuesday, it's backed up heading nort...h from the lights at the courthouse, to Dennison Ave. I'm starting to think that the people who make decisions for this town, don't drive in this town. ADDITIONAL EDIT....Can someone...ANYONE ...explain the lights near Clinton Street??? 2 traffic lights within 30 feet from each other. Someone make this madness stop. Please. See More

The Millwood St /Callahan parking situation is out of control, can't get down the street with the parked cars in the "no parking" area. Also having my driveway used as a turn around constantly is getting old.

♬♫ Don't be a dummy - please vote! On April 4th, Framingham voters will be asked to approve a new form of government for Framingham. A vote yes means Framingham would adopt a city form of government,... with a Mayor, an 11-member City Council and a 9-member School Committee. A vote no would keep Framingham as a town. - Kevin Driscoll - Driscoll Productions - 22 Driscoll Drive - Framingham, MA 01701 See More

Dear town of Framingham I think we should invest in building out door pull up bars and a small out door exercise area at the Bowditch field location.

It is the mission of the Framingham Council on Aging/Callahan Center to improve the healthy aging of a broader segment of the 55 and older population of Framingham by solidifying collaborations in the community to actively reach out to underserved groups by race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and those with health conditions that otherwise limit their connection to the center. There are many volunteer opportunities available at the Callahan Center and locally in Frami...ngham.

Volunteering can be important for countless reasons that benefit both the community and the volunteer especially. When someone donates a handful of time, the difference made is tremendous and it shapes a community for the better. Giving back and helping others builds new connections, experiences and insights for the volunteer. Such insights include communication skills, the ability to work with others, the ability to take direction and lead others, dedication and time management.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at the Callahan Center, please call 508-532-5980 ext. 4102. Check out the Council on Aging's webpage to get a better understanding of the volunteer opportunities and services that are offered. http://ow.ly/ZnQY30ihYjm
