12 Days of Donating: Day 3

On Day 3 of the "12 Days of Donating", let's continue to look back through the events of the year and see how much we can be thankful for in Franklin.

In March, the big talk around Franklin was the vote on the new high school. Many voices of Franklin were heard and generally in a civil discourse around the pros and cons of a new high school. The vote was held on March 27 and with 9971 voters turning out, it rang up with 7988 for and 1982 against.

This collection will continue to be updated as construction on the building makes progress towards the opening in the fall of 2014.

So what does the new high school have to do with 12 Days of Donating? 
I think it shows that Franklin can come together, have a good discussion and take action. These qualities are what makes Franklin a place that matters! When we applies these qualities to the 12 Days of Donating, we will be helping our neighbors.
