They founded the very successful Let's Laugh Today Laughter Club in Franklin, Massachusetts in September 2009, the Westwood Laughter Circle in 2010, Let's Laugh Today in Sharon and Let's Laugh Today in Walpole in 2012 and have been featured in many local newspapers, community television, and radio.
