Welcome from the Chair ...

It is hard to believe that we are now halfway through the summer of 2021. Throughout the early summer we have seen life begin to return to pre-pandemic levels. Summer programs that were cancelled last year have enrolled many students, restaurants are busy and our Franklin Farmers' Market has seen record numbers of people in attendance.

Our Franklin Historical Museum enjoyed a robust reopening and is now once again able to resume the popular "Second Sunday Series", on Sunday, August 8th. Throughout the month of August THE BLACK BOX will offer a variety of performances including a production of "Legally Blonde" beginning on August 11th. As we all begin to venture out more let's continue to support all of our local businesses and arts establishments right here in Franklin.

Regards,
Nancy Schoen, Chair
