November 1st-25th - "Thankful Wreath" - During November we are asking that folks trace their hand on colored paper and write what they are thankful for in it.  You can add your first name and age IF you want.  Get creative and decorate your hand or simply trace, cut and write on it. We will be creating one HUGE community wide Thankful Wreath with the hands.  Colored paper is available for pick up at the Senior center (by appointment) and you can drop completed hands off or mail them in to: Franklin Senior Center - 10 Daniel McCahill St. Franklin, MA 02038. 

Help us tie the community together. What are you thankful for?!
