The fundraising event that took place on Friday, December 31, 2021, sponsored by the Benevolent Protective Order of the Elks 2136 in Franklin was celebrated to begin 2022 together. The aim of this event was to raise funds in support of the Franklin Food Pantry and the troop through their luminary sale.
Luminary kits were sold in sets of 10 that included white bags, votive candles, sand, and instructions. Many of the Franklin residents joined the event and celebrated the holiday season by lining the neighborhood with candle luminaries!
Troop 126 sold 82 luminary kits and donated $250 to Franklin Food Pantry. Thanks to Franklin Historical Museum for allowing the troop to use their parking lot during kits distribution.
We are truly grateful for the support of this town and all who purchased a luminary kit. We look forward to continuing this event for the next year and hoping to donate more to the Franklin Food Pantry!
