News and happenings in the Greater Fall River area
Hereâ€™s some news and happenings taking place in the Greater Fall River area.
Heads up when driving on New Boston Road. There is a new stop sign at the corner of Stetson Street and New Boston Road (at New Boston Bakery). I donâ€™t know when it went up, but I hope it was recently. I only noticed it last night. It seems like a strange place for a stop sign, but it is there. Be careful!
