Notice of Formation of Franklin Recreation Board


On August 15th, 2016 the Town of Franklin Selectboard appointed Interim Board Members for the newly formed Franklin Recreation Department. The goal of the Franklin Recreation Board is to coordinate a year round recreation program for the residents and visitors of Franklin by offering a wide range of activities for the entire community and encouraging healthy lifestyles. The Franklin Recreation Board will consist of 5-7 members, each a resident of the Town of Franklin, who share the same goals of improving the health of our community and increasing the recreational activities in our town. The Recreation Board will meet once or twice a month, as needed to identify and plan for both new and existing recreational activities within Franklin. Bridgette Favreau, Bridget Thompson, and Stephanie Ho have been appointed as Interim Members of the Recreation Board, leaving 2-4 open seats to be filled by interested residents of Franklin. Those interested in sitting on the Franklin Recreation Board are asked to submit a letter of interest to the Town Clerk no later than close of business on Friday, September 9, 2016. Each letter of interest shall include a brief description of why the individual would like to be a part of the Board, and identify any skills or experience that would benefit the Recreation Board. The remaining seats on the Recreation Board will be selected from those who submitted a letter of interest and appointed by the Selectboard during their meeting on September 21, 2016.
