From tours to veteran recognition and holidays we host a variety of events throughout the year. See below for details:
MEMORIAL DAY SERVICE

Please join us and bring family and friends for our old-fashioned, patriotic Memorial Day tribute to all of our veterans. We encourage all who served in any branch of the armed forces, at any time to attend and receive the thanks of our attendees for your service. Veterans are encouraged to wear their uniforms.

ANNUAL DINNER AND BUSINESS MEETING
Date: May 16th, 2019 at 6 pm
We invite you to join us for our Annual Meeting and Potluck Dinner in the Franklin Church Social Hall. The Association will provide a baked ham entrée. Please bring a dish to pass if you are able; if not, please feel free to join us anyway. Our annual "get-together" is a great time to reconnect with old friends and make new ones, all with a connection to our beautiful cemetery. We look forward to this unique opportunity for fellowship as we conduct the business at hand.
Annual dues are $25 to help offset our Cemetery's operating expenses . Your memberships and any additional donations are tax deductible to the extant permitted by law. We hope to have 100% participation this year for this nominal contribution. Member families who wish to become Voting Members of the Association and eligible to vote an the Annual Meeting are defined in our By-laws as "grave owners and members of their families who have paid the annual dues. Each family shall constitute one member and shall be entitled a single vote at membership meetings." Please send your check for $25 payable to the Franklin Cemetery Association to the address above, or you may pay at the door the night of the meeting. Please be assured everyone is welcome to attend the Annual Meeting, whether you are a voting member or not. We appreciate your support.
