FDP Planning Franklin’s 2010 Holiday Stroll

The Franklin Downtown Partnership is busy planning this year’s Holiday Stroll and is looking for businesses interested in sponsoring the event. This year’s stroll will take place on Thursday, December 2, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The festivities will begin with a holiday tree lighting at Dean College followed by a stroll through town. Last year’s event drew hundreds of people to the downtown. Businesses and organizations participated with special promotions, entertainment and refreshments. Santa will once again be at Simon’s Furniture on Summer Street.

This year’s stroll will be sponsored by Ferguson Enterprises, Middlesex Savings Bank, Keefe Insurance, Dean Bank, NHS Print, Ficco’s Bowladrome and Tedeschi Food Shops. Interested businesses should contact event coordinators Cindy Kozil, ckozil@dean.edu, and Roberta Trahan, Roberta_icu1@verizon.net, for details and sponsorship forms. A sponsorship form is also available here.

As a non-profit organization, the Downtown Partnership depends on sponsors to run this and other events, including the Harvest Festival, Third Thursday events and Beautification. For more information please contact Executive Director Lisa Piana at (774)571-3109 or downtown.franklin@yahoo.com.
