Friday, January 23 at Ocean Grill, Greenfield

We're ready to welcome in the New Year and hope you are too! Our first breakfast of 2015 will be on Friday, January 23, at Ocean Grill and Steak House, 30 Federal Street, Greenfield. We're very pleased that two hard-working and dedicated people in our community have put together a program for us to bring everyone up to date on some important initiatives making positive changes in Franklin County.

Franklin County Sheriff Chris Donelan will speak about the initiatives being implemented at the Franklin County House of Correction. In particular, he will discuss programs that are making a difference in the lives of many of those who are incarcerated then released. This includes social and family interventions, job readiness and a variety of other support systems designed to reduce recidivism. Another segment of the program will be Opioid Task Force Coordinator Marisa Hebble who will give an update on the opioid crisis in our area and the work of the Task Force. The Task Force and Marisa's work stand out as a model in Massachusetts for community involvement and attempts to solve these problems.

The breakfast begins at 7:30 and concludes at 9 a.m. Reserve by January 17, call (413) 773-5463. Chamber members $13.00 (prepaid or pay-at-door), $14.00 (billed) or non-members $16.00. A flyer is available to view.    

Thanks to our sponsors: Franklin County Home Care Corp. and The Richard's Group
