Now is the time to reserve your seat at one of the more than a dozen public sites for Franklin Tomorrow‘s On the Table conversations.
The kickoff event will be Tuesday, Oct. 30, at Franklin Tomorrow’s quarterly Breakfast With the Mayors, presented by Pinnacle Financial Partners. Set for 7 a.m. at Rolling Hills Community Church, 1810 Columbia Ave. in Franklin, the conversations will start at 7:30 a.m.
To RSVP for Breakfast With the Mayors, follow this link.  
The set-up of the auditorium at Rolling Hills will be different on Oct. 30, with guests seated at tables of eight or 10 for discussion. Following the 45-minute to one-hour discussion, attendees will be provided a link to an online survey to gauge their experience and discussion at the table, but also their priorities and goals for Franklin’s future.
On the Table is an opportunity for the people of Franklin to gather in small groups around a table with friends, neighbors, colleagues and maybe even a few people meeting for the first time, to share a meal and have a real conversation about what’s important. Tables will gather in groups of 8-12 people for a meal and discussion on topics that are important to the community of Franklin.
Breakfast will still be provided by our great friends at Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant and MJ Roasting.

Why participate in On the Table?
On the Table conversations are intended to inspire people to take action and seize opportunities in the community. After conversations happen, participants will be asked to share their outcomes and provide feedback around topics discussed. Franklin Tomorrow will share and discuss the findings to explore ways in which Franklin can work together to create the most engaged, generous and welcoming community for all.

Can’t find a seat? Host a private On the Table
conversation in your home or business

While we’d like to have most people convene on the same day, if you can’t, we’d still love to have you participate, maybe by hosting a conversation with friends, co-workers or family in your home or business.
If you can host your friends and family a few days before or after Oct. 30, we’ll still be able to gather your surveys. The first step is to fill out the Host Registration Form so we know you are participating. Then, you can attend host training on Oct. 22 to pick up your packet or you canview our short, eight-minute online webinar on hosting.
Then, host a 60- to 90-minute mealtime conversation on Oct. 30, or at another time beforeNov. 7. Invite four to eight friends, family members, neighbors, and colleagues; expand your circle to other networks. The food doesn’t need to be elaborate; it can be a potluck, a brown bag or a simple snack. Gather at home, work, church, a coffee shop or restaurant. You can host multiple conversations and our host guide provides conversation starters.
We will ask you to have your guests check in by text and to complete a post-event survey that will be sent to them by text and email. This is a crucial part of On the Table. The survey allows us to collect the creative ideas and actionable plans discussed during the event.
