Holiday Stroll - Photo essay

The bargain of the day was the Christmas wreaths being sold by the Friends of Franklin to benefit the Franklin Food Pantry.

At $5, they wreaths were moving quickly. This one is already hanging on my front door! (For the very observant, yes, I did change the photo. The wreath by daylight looked so much better than in the night view I originally had here.)

The Mount St. Charles Handbell Choir performed and explained their process at Dean Bank

The Franklin Art Center was alight and welcoming!

A great holiday idea is the Franklin Calendar. Available at the Franklin Art Center $15. Each month displays a different work of art in and around Franklin.

The downtown was busy with families and a festive spirit in the cool evening air.

At the Franklin Historical Museum, Mrs Claus had a circle of young folks listening with great attention. Everyone leaving her area left with big smiles!

Alan Procknow, a senior majoring in History at Dean College, presented on Franklin's role in the Industrial Revolution. A link to the presentation document will be added here.

It was a good night be in and around downtown Franklin. There were other places I could have stopped but time was short and there was so much to do! Albeit cool, the weather was good and the moon rose brightly over Franklin.

Thanks to the Franklin Downtown Partnership, all their helpers and sponsors for this wonderful evening.
