Special Events Noted With Appreciation

  • Saint Mary's Parish Youth Organization treated FHA residents to an indoor picnic during the summer and a Christmas Pizza Party during the holiday season. Volunteers and youths along with the pastor spread smiles and good cheer to all.
  • Rotary Club members served their annual spaghetti dinner to FHA residents and area seniors complete with all the fixings. Also, the Rotarians provided a nice gift for each senior. Dominic Padula through Party Pro's provided music and songs from the past, which put a tap to the foot and a smile to the face of all seniors who attended. Rotary members cooked, served, entertained and picked up after. Rotarians always comment that the smiles and the kind words of appreciation received make their time and efforts very rewarding.
  • Students and teachers from the Remington/Jefferson schools, with help and support from the Franklin Police Department, Jeanne Melanson and parents of students, provided Christmas gifts for Franklin Housing Authority's young family members through a Secret Santa program for the sixth year running. This group provides gifts along with a Christmas spirit that may otherwise be lost.
  • The employees of the Franklin Housing Authority cooked and served all the fixings of a traditional cookout at its forth annual Senior Appreciation Cookout. Ben Franklin Savings Bank sponsored the picnic and we offer special thanks to them for making the day possible.
  • Franklin Police Department sponsored a full Thanksgiving dinner for Franklin Residents who may otherwise not enjoy a Thanksgiving meal. Special thanks to Chief Bennadeto and Officer Gratto for the planning of this spectacular event. This dinner took place at the Franklin Housing Authority community building on the day prior to Thanksgiving Day. Uniform Officers served many area seniors at the hall and housebound seniors had meals delivered to them at home. The Officers were very successful in making the seniors feel special and the event assisted in showing the true caliber of our police department.
