I can’t tell you how many times we’ve passed through downtown Franklin only to find some big event going on that we didn’t even have a clue about.

It’s kind of our own fault, because we don’t subscribe to the local newspaper. And that “free paper” that arrives… on occasion… well, we don’t really make a point to read that either.

Still, I’m surprised that there isn’t more advertising and signage in the weeks leading up to events around here — especially the bigger ones. We’ve lived here (just a hop, skip & a jump away from historic downtown Franklin) for 6 years now, and I don’t think we’ve ever received a flier in the mail or a postcard reminder about events taking place in Franklin.

I realize it’s a small town, and word of mouth is probably what this town is used to in terms of getting the word out about major events. But in every other community we’ve lived in, we got postcards & fliers in the mail to remind us of major events. You know… the kind that of notices that you can then stick on the fridge, so you don’t forget!

What we’ve learned is…

If you really want to stay on top of the local events (and find out about them before they take place), then you pretty much have to seek out the information yourself, rather than wait for it to arrive on your doorstep.
