Downtown Partnership, Garden Club to Decorate for Holidays

The Franklin Downtown Partnership will team up with the Franklin Garden Club to decorate the downtown on Sunday, Nov. 18. Volunteers are needed to help install wreaths, bows and greenery. 

Interested volunteers will meet Beautification Chairperson Eileen Mason at 9 a.m. on Nov. 18 at the downtown bridges. Community service hours are available for students; groups and teams are encouraged to participate. Help is also needed on Saturday, Nov. 17 from noon to 1 p.m. at Hillside Nurseries to sort greens. 

“We look forward to making the downtown festive and holiday-ready every year,” Mason said. “We’re a 100% volunteer group and only able to take on these projects with a lot of help from the community including your time and sponsorships. Special thanks go to Hillside Nurseries for sourcing the greens, wreaths and decorations. Thanks to the Franklin DPW team for their support as well. Happy and safe holidays to all!”
