Updating the Franklin Community Playground

For many years our Franklin Baseball and Softball families have enjoyed the playground next to the Franklin Church. There is a committee that is fundraising to update the facilities. Below is information on how to help them reach their goal! 

 It is time to update the aging Franklin Community Playground.  A team has been formed and is dedicated to improving and enhancing this popular meeting place.  The entire community will benefit from a park that is safe and inviting for all who visit.  Please consider a tax-deductible donation in support of your "Franklin Family" to accomplish this project.  To view project details and make a donation, please visit www.GoFundMe.com/Franklin-Playground.
