Franklin is on the move and Franklin Gear is loving it! Hi, Bill Y. - Franklin Guy here! Nothing to do? You should have been in Franklin this Saturday. You would have started your day off with a coffee at The Franklin Studio - checked out a little Franklin Gear in their gift shop. You'd then go a few doors down to the Franklin Opera House - it is co-located with the city hall.
There you'd take in the TEDx Conference. It was organized by Oscar Gala Grano - Founder, Take Root Coworking. He had wonderful speakers; check them out here by clicking the TEDx logo...
After TEDx, if you were like Oscar, you would swing over to West Franklin and find yourself at The Concert on the Hill at Veterans Memorial Recreation Area. At the base of the ski mountain, you'd be rocking out with the Franklin Outing Club - hosting four great bands: NightRider, The Joe Truck Blues Band, Almost Broken and Jimmy Howe. Of course Ken Merrifield (center) our former mayor, plays guitar in NightRider and helped bring these bands together - another awesome Franklin Guy!
Jim Jones - President, Franklin Outing Club. The ultimate Franklin Guy! No one does more for their community than Jim. He works tirelessly to promote healthy, outdoor activities for people of all ages in the Franklin area. Our Franklin Gear Family is nationwide, but if you are lucky enough to be in the Capital Area or Lakes Region of NH you can attend any of the Outing Club's events. Check them out on Facebook.
So thanks to all the Franklin Guys and Girls who made for a great weekend! Just as you don't have to be from Franklin to wear Franklin Gear - you don't have to live in Franklin to take advantage of all it has to offer! Franklin is here for everyone! We'll do another TEDx Conference and the Concert on the Hill is already scheduling for next year!
