This session of the radio show shares my conversation with Danielle Hopkins. the new Director for the Franklin Senior Center and Christina LaRose, the new Deputy Director.  We talk about their first couple of weeks in their new roles at the Senior Center. 

You’ll hear how each of them came to this role and from their backgrounds how well they are fitting together. Much learning and listening underway with good ideas for reopening the cafe and then adjusting/expanding programs to meet the needs of the community.

The recording runs about 18 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Danielle and Christina.
