Blackstone officials likely won’t consider the possible hiring of a current employee’s relative.
BUT CAN BLACKSTONE AFFORD IT?
The Town of Blackstone surprised and honored long-time community volunteer and hardware store owner Bobby Daniels, shown above with wife Lynn, by naming a street in his honor Saturday at the 51st Arts & Crafts Festival.
I’m glad Bobby Daniels didn’t get upset at being honored Saturday with a street named in his honor. Bobby has never sought fanfare or recognition -- in fact, he has shunned the spotlight -- which makes Saturday morning’s surprise even more fitting. ‘Bobby Daniels Lane’ has a nice ring to it. It was a nice gesture by Town Council, and I’m glad everyone kept it a surprise. Who says Blackstone folks can’t keep a good secret?
