It's time to check up on one of New Bedford's longest running non-profit organizations for children.  The Dennison Memorial Center is located in the South End, and for the last several years, has been under the leadership of Jim Mathes. Mathes joins WBSM's Jim Phillips on this weekend's Townsquare Sunday broadcast for an update. During a visit in June, Mathes provided details on new education programs at the center, and its involvement with New Bedford Public Schools during the summer months. We'll find out what's next for those programs, and what Dennison leaders feel about a call from Mayor Mitchell for more private businesses to become involved with non-profit groups.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 am on WBSM 1420 and Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
