The Franklin Historical Commission will celebrate our town’s birthday with a party at the Museum on Sunday March 1st.
The public is invited and encouraged to join the Commission for cake and refreshments as we commemorate the Town of Franklin’s 237th Birthday.
Originally to be named Exeter when the charter was filed on March 2, 1778, our town took the name Franklin after the famous diplomat and revolutionary, Benjamin Franklin.
Local residents who were born on March 2nd have received an invitation from Historical Commission Chairperson, Debbie Pellegri, inviting them to the museum to celebrate their shared birthday with the town.
From young children to seniors, as many as 88 town residents have a March 2nd birthday. All invitees in attendance born on March 2nd, will be entered in a free raffle for a $100 prize!
Sunday March 1st, 1:00PM, Franklin Historical Museum, 80 West Central Street, Franklin.
