FRAMINGHAM, MA -- According to Jim Egan, Town Building Services; he is putting the final touches on a concert schedule during the month of July for The Concerts on the Green series annually held on the Centre Common on Edgell Road
Enough donations, following discussions and a call for donations at Town Meeting, on framingham.com, and email lists such as framcom, have come in to fund a July series.
While the concerts are run under the auspices of the Town of Framingham by Jim Egan, Director of Town Building Services, the funding is through donations. The bands, set-up expenses, and personnel are all paid for by donations. The Framingham Auxiliary Police donate their time to keep people attending the concerts safe by providing crossing guards.
They can still use more funding and, if enough donations make it in on time, extend the concerts into August.
Send your checks to: Town of Framingham - Concert Fund, 150 Concord St, Framingham, MA 01702.
Businesses who donate larger sums generally have their banners displayed during the concerts as well as are given credit on the concert flyers and in any publicity and advertising.
