While municipal facilities still aren’t hosting events, Town employees have been coordinating with Southborough Access Media to offer entertainment and educational presentations to the public. Here are more programs you can enjoy.

This month, SAM has been airing a special program for the Southborough Senior Center. “Early Roads & Trails of MA” features “five-time Emmy award-winning historian” John Horrigan “as he views ancient paths and trails of Massachusetts” and talks about “major thoroughfares that transit Southborough”.

In addition to airing the following videos on Public Access, SAM posted them to its YouTube channel:

Two regular series have also been airing on Public Access and available on YouTube.

SAM has been sharing Southborough Youth and Family Services’ Coffee Talk series. Each week they feature a guest, usually one whose role is connected to public services. You can check out their entire playlist here.

And, though not produced by a Town agency, SAM offers the Frank & Mary in Southborough series with hosts Doug Peck and elder law attorney Arthur Bergeron.

The series revolves around issues that impact people like “Frank & Mary” a fictional senior couple that want to live in their house until they die. Not only have they continued to record the series, they launched a “pandemic” version over zoom. You can find those here.
