In the News: Friends of the Poor Walk, Healing Hands for Arthritis

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:

"The Society of St. Vincent dePaul of St. Mary’s Parish in Franklin will sponsor the Friends of the Poor Walk from 9 to 11 a.m. Sept. 26 at the Parish of St. Mary, 1 Church Square, Franklin.
Walkers will collect pledges, and the money promised to them from family, friends, neighbors and co-workers and turn it in to the parish on the day of the walk. All collected funds stay in Franklin to help those in need, regardless of faith. 
The walk will begin at the intersection of Church Square and Oak Street, right onto Oak to Iroquois, to the end of Iroquois and back to St. Mary’s Church. The route is 3 miles. Walkers may turn back at Lucius Street for a 2-mile walk.
