Ladybugs to be Displayed on Town Common Aug. 9 & 10

A note from the Franklin Cultural Council:


The Franklin Cultural Council is truly grateful to you for joining the Ladybug Spots Project. We want to remind you that the decorated ladybugs will be on display this coming weekend, August 9th and 10th, from 12p.m. to 4p.m. on Franklin Common.  We would love to see you and catch up among the beautiful, bright and creative two foot fiberglass ladybugs, each one a unique piece of public art.  Stop by before or after a trip to St. Rocco’s Italian Festival on St. Mary’s former School Grounds.  Maybe bring a cannoli or two to share. 

If you can’t make it this weekend or still want sponsor a ladybug, don’t worry.  We have just five left and they are looking for homes.  Contact for more details.

Attached is a flier for you to share with friends and neighbors. We look forward to celebrating the 40th Birthday of our state bug, born right here in Franklin.  Remember that with your help, we are raising funds toward a permanent sculpture honoring the 1974 2nd grade class from Kennedy Elementary School and their teacher, Palma Johnson, who inspired them to petition and follow the bill through to witness it signed into law.

Again, thank you for being a part of this exciting event,

The Franklin Cultural Council
