We live in a community unlike any other!!
We here in the Town Clerk's office are reaching out to the residents of Franklin requesting your help to celebrate and honor Franklin's oldest resident, Mr. Walter Zinchuk, born on July 19, 1917 celebrating his 104th birthday.
Walter, along with his late wife Alta, purchased their Franklin home in 1958, where they raised four children. Mr. Zinchuk who is a World War II Veteran, served in New Guinea and Australia as a combat engineer. Walter received the Boston Post Cane which represents the oldest Franklin resident, and holds the title proudly! Walter is a very young 104, actively participating in various activities at Benchmark Senior Living.
To celebrate this amazing gentleman, a gathering is planned for Sunday, July 18th at 1:30 PM at Benchmark Senior Living, Forge Hill Road, Franklin. We are asking Franklin residents to "participate" in Mr. Zinchuk's birthday celebration by mailing a birthday card to:
Mr. Walter Zinchuk c/o Benchmark Senior Living4 Forge Hill RoadFranklin, MA 02038"
