Former Rotary International President Mark Maloney will kick off FrankTalks by discussing the Celebrate Community initiative, which was organized by four worldwide volunteer service organizations.

Leadership from the service organizations Kiwanis International, Lions Clubs International, Optimist International, and Rotary International have encouraged their clubs and youth programs around the world to work together on projects during one week as part of a joint initiative dubbed Celebrate Community – #CelebrateCommunity.

Issues related to health and wellness, food insecurity and hunger, education and literacy, and the environment will be addressed through community cleanups, food donations and distributions, walks or runs to raise money for specific causes and book collections for children.

Franklin Tomorrow will host its monthly FrankTalks lecture on Monday, September 12th at 9:30 a.m. in Asbury Hall at Franklin First United Methodist Church off of Mack Hatcher. Our coffee social with The Good Food Group will begin at 9 a.m.
