The annual Shrimp Boil is set for Saturday, July 13th and Franklin Tomorrow is honoring their award recipients with a gift of life in the form of trees. Franklin Tomorrow is planting trees in city parks in addition to honoring the Anne T. Rutherford Exemplary Community Volunteers. This green tribute is a fitting addition.
Since two of the awardees have passed away and will be honored posthumously, the planting of trees is a symbol of growth and life. Award winners will receive a certificate on Saturday when the announcement is made. They also will be honored later this year by the planting of a tree in their honor in one of the city’s parks. Outdoor Classic Structures on Second Avenue South in Franklin is assisting with the selection of appropriate trees. Plaques will be placed by the trees to honor the individual. “By planting a tree in honor of the award winners, their legacy of service will be further enhanced,” said Kathie Moore, Franklin Tomorrow Board president.
