The season of joy and giving is now upon us. The Franklin Lions Club will be hoping for the kind generosity of this community once again. Over the next few weekends, you will see members of our club out in front of local businesses collecting from what we fondly refer to as our "dime boards." This is our annual project to raise money to take children in our community shopping for new clothes at Christmas. As part of our "Santa Pal" event, the children we venture to make a better Holiday Season for will receive breakfast, shopping and a visit with Santa (where toys are involved!)

A full buffet with two pastas, turkey, dressing, potatoes, pot roast, meatloaf, lots of veggies, fresh baked rolls and a huge array of fabulous desserts. All of which was delicious.
