Good morning, Taunton! Today is Friday, April 29, 2022. End of the week! We made it; well done to us all. Let's celebrate with today's top stories:

Gillette Stadium to cover costs for B-R prom

The Bridgewater-Raynham Class of 2022 won't be having their senior prom at Gillette Stadium on May 20 after all.

An additional Garth Brooks performance has been scheduled for that night.

However, unlike Brooks, the Class of 2022 seems to have friends in high places, because Gillette Stadium is making it up to them.

Gillette is paying for the students to have their prom at another venue, and, as an extra treat, they'll be having a field day at Gillette Stadium in May.
