The Athenaeum Hall is located on the corner of Watson Place and Concord Street in Saxonville.

FRAMINGHAM, MA - Imagine the Athenaeum open to the public once again. Let's make it happen!

Please join The Friends of Saxonville at their Annual Meeting on Tuesday April 9th, 2013 at 7:00 PM in the Edwards Church Education Building, 39 Edwards Street in Saxonville to discover how this could become a reality.

The main agenda item of the meeting is The Friends’ proposal to restore The Athenaeum Hall as "The Athenaeum Community Hall in Saxonville."

The Athenaeum Task Force will make a media presentation that includes an historical overview of the Athenaeum, with details of the proposal, ask for your input and answer your questions. This is the perfect time to renew your membership or to join the organization and discover ways that you can help restore the Athenaeum Community Hall to its original purpose and stature.

Light refreshment from local Saxonville vendors will be served.
