Consider nominating them for one of many awards given as part of Franklin Tomorrow’s 14th annual Exemplary Community Volunteer Awards.

The ceremony will be held Tuesday, November 17 at Rolling Hills Community Church.

“In this year of unprecedented challenges Franklin Tomorrow is so excited to be able to honor the amazing volunteers that have shown us that even in times of hardships, the Franklin community has so many gracious individuals that are here to help others,” Franklin Tomorrow Executive Director Mindy Tate said.

Awards are presented in a variety of categories to individuals, businesses and civic groups, with one new award this year. Being added this year is the Neighbor To Neighbor Award, which will be given to an individual or organization that has shown extreme generosity to its neighbors and has exceeded expectation in terms of giving back to the community.

“USI and Grange Insurance are thrilled to be the presenting partners for this year’s Volunteer Awards,” USI Vice President Patrick Baggett said. “We are looking forward to showcasing the great volunteers that call Franklin home and appreciate the community for continuing to show its volunteer spirit throughout a difficult year.”
