Community Picnic
September 18, 2004

A community picnic was held at the site of the old community hall on Saturday, September 18, 2004.   All Franklin residents were invited.    Food was provided by the water district and volunteers from the community.  A huge thank you to all those who worked so hard to organize this event.   It took many hours and personal expense to have this event.    It shows the dedication and kindness of those involved in the community.  

Plans for the new community hall were on display.   Residents had an opportunity to view what their new center would look like. 

76 residents took advantage of this opportunity to visit with old friends and make new ones.   A local band  "America’s Favorite Mustard" provided music for the event.     Over 30 door prizes were given away.   The raffle drawing was held.  Tickets had been on sale for several months.  The community raised $491.50 from the sale of raffle tickets.  This money will be used for one of the on-going rebuilding projects in the community.    View list of raffle prizes and winners.
