“Dan is a very hardworking and conscientious individual who has an exceptionally bright future ahead of him,” said Senator Ross. “Interning at the State House in a fast-paced setting can be tough, but Dan rose to the challenge. It was great having him this summer and I look forward to witnessing the great work he continues to do.”

Small Business Spotlight: Franklin Liquors, Franklin

Small Business Spotlight: Franklin Liquors, Franklin

With the owner of Franklin Liquors Mark Lenzi and his son Joe Lenzi.

Serving the community since 1978, family-owned Franklin Liquors has been providing high-grade wine, beer, and liquor products to its customers for over 30 years. However, this neighborhood favorite is so much more than a liquor store. With a strong online presence and an emphasis on wine education, Franklin Liquors has consistently redefined what it means to shop smartly and locally.

Franklin Liquors is run by lifelong Franklin residents Mark and Mike Lenzi. Their staff, including Mark’s son Joe, are highly educated and willing to assist any customer, whether it be a first time buyer or a wine aficionado. In their store they have wine dispensaries to try before you buy, interactive stations, and an online store making it easier than ever to ensure you are purchasing the best possible product.

In addition to offering a wide selection of new and up-to-date items on a daily basis, Franklin Liquors is a great venue for residents interested in exploring and learning more about wine. At their store they have a wine tasting and education room hosting the Franklin Wine Club as well as adult education programs for Franklin, Medway, and the Tri-County area. For more information on how to enjoy wine at home, you can visit their website, follow their social media pages, or sign up for their newsletter to learn all you can and become an expert as well.

With all of this, it is no wonder Franklin Liquors was voted the Readers Choice for Best Liquor Store in Franklin and the 16 Town Region in both 2014 and 2015. Over the past three decades, Mike and Mark have taken their business and expanded, making it not just a place to buy fine wine, but a place to discuss, learn, and grow as a community.

For more information on Franklin Liquors, please visit www.franklinliquors.com.

If you would like your business to be a part of the Small Business Spotlight or would like to nominate a small business, email Senator Ross at richard.ross@masenate.gov.

Boston – This summer, Wayland resident, Anna Wells, interned in the State House office of State Senator Richard Ross.

Anna has lived in Wayland for most of her life and has remained committed to her community and her academics as a high honor roll student, athlete, and passionate volunteer. Now a rising senior at Wayland High School, Anna is largely involved in a number of school sports including soccer, swim team, and track.

Anna also participates in Wayland High School’s Water Warriors program which offers free swimming and safety lessons to METCO students, grades 1 to 8.

“Anna is truly a dedicated individual eager to learn, ask questions, and challenge herself on a daily basis,” said Senator Ross. “It has been a pleasure to have Anna working in my office and alongside my staff. I am confident that she will continue to excel and make her community proud.”

Anna will be applying for college this fall and while her plans are still up in the air, her favorite schools are Dartmouth and UCLA and she hopes to major in the humanities, possibly History, International Relations, or Political Science.

Throughout the year, Senator Richard J. Ross hosts interns in his State House office from across the Norfolk, Bristol, and Middlesex District. The internship program allows for students to gain professional experience, listen to speakers from across Massachusetts government, and acquire a better understanding of matters impacting their hometown and the Commonwealth as a whole.
