If you are willing to post this that would be great. This month's theme is storytelling.
We will be creating our own story as a collaborative effort from an old photograph! Next month we will have an old fashioned tea party!
Please ask folks who are attending this month to bring a favorite book or story from their childhood!
Any questions please let me know.

A long-awaited overhaul for busy King Street in Franklin has received an injection of state funds that will allow the project - offering improved traffic flow, better signals, and enhanced vehicle, pedestrian, and bicycle safety - to move forward next spring.
The state Transportation Improvement Program has allotted $3.8 million in state and federal funds toward the project, which focuses on upgrades to the Interstate 495 ramps at King Street. Work will extend along King Street from Union Street to Upper Union Street, and include construction on Upper Union Street from King Street to Constitution Boulevard.
The project is slated to go out for bid this fall, with construction starting next spring. Robert "Brutus" Cantoreggi, director of Franklin's Department of Public Works, said he expects construction will last 18 months. While there are likely to be delays, the roads involved in the project will remain open, he said.
The project is aimed at reducing traffic congestion and improving safety measures at several bustling intersections along King Street and at Interstate 495.
