PHOTOS: Senior Center thanks Franklin Tech students with donation

Franklin Tech students have been going to the center on Tech Tuesdays to help seniors with their cellphones, tablets, laptops and any other technical questions they might have. They have helped more than 70 people retrieve lost photos, revive dead computers and fill out forms online for services. The gift was paid for by the Friends of the Gill-Montague Senior Center.
