Town of Wrentham to be Featured on Boston 25 Morning News ‘Zip Trips’


Community Invited to Watch Live on Town Common

WRENTHAM — Town Administrator Kevin Sweet is pleased to announce that the Town of Wrentham will be featured on Boston 25 Morning News’ “Zip Trips” this July.

On the morning of July 28, Boston 25 will be broadcasting live from the Wrentham Town Common, 1 Franklin St., from 6-10 a.m. as part of its 20th season of “Zip Trips.” During the broadcast, Boston 25 will highlight the unique aspects of the community that makes Wrentham, Wrentham.

Community members are encouraged to attend the live showing as a representation of their Wrentham pride and to see the behind-the-scenes action of a live broadcast.

The live broadcast will feature several interviews, performances, and more. Town Administrator Sweet, Select Board Chair Joseph F. Botaish II, and Co-Chair of the 350th Committee and Town Moderator Edward Goddard will be among those interviewed.

During the event, “Wrentham, Oh Wrentham” will be performed by the Wrentham Elementary School Chorus led by music teacher Melanie Mariotti. The song’s music was written by Mike McGuire with lyrics by Grey Almeida, Julia Haney and Mike McGuire. The chorus most recently performed this piece at Town Meeting on June 5.

There also will be several sponsor pop-up tents for attendees to browse and enjoy.

“This event perfectly coincides with our town’s 350th anniversary and is yet another opportunity for our community members to come together to celebrate all the great aspects of living and working in the Town of Wrentham,” Town Administrator Sweet said. “We greatly look forward to hosting the Boston 25 crew and hope to have a huge community turnout.”

The Town will close David Brown Way and Common Street for this event. Spectator parking will be available at the following locations:

  • Town Hall, 79 South St.

  • Senior Center, 400 Taunton St.

A shuttle bus will be available from the Senior Center to the Town Common from 8 -10 a.m. 

Community members should note that the town center parking lot will be under construction until Aug. 31.

Ahead of the event, Boston 25 Reporter Litsa Pappas will be in town on Thursday, June 15 to film locations and prepare an edited piece to play the morning of July 28.
