FRAMINGHAM, MA - In 1992, the Salute to Framingham was created to honor individuals for their outstanding commitment and service to Framingham's youth. Since then, the Salute to Framingham has become one of Framingham's most celebrated annual events. This year's honorees join a select group of people who have made a real difference in the lives of the children of Framingham.

On Thursday, March 24th, Salute to Framingham will honor Michael Grilli and Joey Sementelli.

In addition to these honorees, the Salute program also recognizes Framingham teachers and staff who make each day "special" in our public schools.  We also acknowledge graduating FHS students who positively impact the school community.

This year, the Salute to Framingham will present the Jim O'Connor Community Service Award to F-SEPAC (Framingham Special Education Parent Advisory Council).  Named for former FHS Athletic Director and founder of the Salute to Framingham, this award honors an organization whose work benefits the youth of Framingham. Framingham Special Education Parent Advisory Council is co-chaired by Cheryl Caira and Susan Arndt.

The Salute to Framingham Dinner will take place on Thursday, March 24th at the Sheraton Framingham Ballroom.  Complete details and ticket information are available at:
