Flowers to Adorn Downtown Franklin Again
May 21 Event to Beautify Town
On May 21, members of the Franklin Downtown Partnership, Franklin Garden Club and other volunteers will meet to beautify Franklin by planting colorful mini- liquorice, purple and white wave petunias and pink gaura flowers in barrels and boxes throughout the downtown area.
Volunteers will meet at 2 p.m. on Fri., May 21 at Fairmount Fruit Farm to pick up the plants and transport them downtown. Then volunteers will plant the barrels in front of various businesses, and finally, the boxes and barrels at the bridge in downtown Franklin. If you can help with the spring planting, please email Eileen at [email protected]
“I’m looking forward to building on what we started last year by having designated parties responsible for certain locations. It worked fantastically and kept everyone safe,” said Eileen Mason who leads the beautification efforts. “Let’s celebrate new beginnings in 2021 by staying safe and adding a dash of color and fresh new plantings in downtown Franklin!”
