Franklin News of Neighbors



It wouldn’t be summer if we didn’t see the Havey girls’ cucumber stand. Once again, they have managed to carry on their grandfather Getch’s tradition of providing us all with the best cucumbers in town. When you see the little table out by the road at the Havey Oil sign, be sure to stop by and get a couple for supper. I know it’s something I look forward to every year, and did so when Getch was selling.

The Franklin Baptist Church is ready to host another fun-filled week of vacation Bible study. This year’s theme is Panda Mania. It will be held Aug. 8-12 from 9 a.m. to noon each day. For more information please call 565-0975.

The Franklin Historical Society has three great events planned for August, beginning this Saturday, so mark your calendars. Saturday, Aug. 6, is the Historical Society’s annual blueberry pancake breakfast to be held at the Vets Club from 7 to 10 a.m. Admission is $5 for adults and $2.50 for children. Then on Wednesday, Aug. 10, Mark Herrington, a 2009 Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium sculptor, will present a program titled “Journey in Time and Place” at 7 p.m. at the Franklin Historical Society Building on Route 200. Wrapping up the month on Sunday, Aug. 21, there will be a new event we’re calling “Picnic in the Park.” Grab your family and friends, pack a lunch, blankets or chairs, and head on down to the Historical Park in West Franklin (Route 182), which is also known as the Galamander Park. Refreshments will be available for sale and there will be live music courtesy of our very own Grist Mill Gang. There will also be a raffle drawing and games for the kids. Rain date will be for the following Sunday, Aug. 28.
