Winter Beautification Volunteers Needed

Volunteers are needed for this year's Winter Beautification Day -- Sunday, November 23rd at 9:00 a.m. and on Saturday at Hillside Nursery at 9:00 a.m.

Please contact Eileen Mason at if you can volunteer.

See more details below:

Winter Beautification Day is November 23
Volunteers are welcome to join the Franklin Downtown Partnership and the Franklin Garden Club as they decorate the downtown with greenery, wreaths and bows for the holidays on Sunday, November 23.
All volunteers will meet at 9 a.m. on Sunday on the center island downtown. Additional help is needed on Saturday, November 22, to sort greens at Hillside Nursery on Washington Street. Interested helpers should contact Eileen Mason, event chairperson, at Community service hours are available and teams are encouraged to participate.
“Every year we have great volunteers who come out in all kinds of weather to help us spruce Franklin up for the holidays. The Franklin High boys and girls hockey teams always make the effort,” says Mason.
Sponsorships are available and donations are also welcome to help offset the costs.  Please consider helping out with the cost of the holiday decorations this year. 
“Decorating, planting, watering, cleanup and planning happen year round, and it requires manpower and funds,” explains Mason, who recently ordered plantings for next spring. “Monetary support helps us cover costs like plants, fertilizer, and maintenance.”
Additionally, the Partnership’s “Downtown Clean Sweep Committee” is recruiting business owners to adopt a block and looking for volunteers to get involved in keeping the downtown free of trash, weeds and debris.

For more information or if you would like to donate toward the holiday decorations please contact the FDP office at or Eileen Mason.
