On behalf of the Franklin 4th of July Coalition, Thank You.

Special thanks to the following people and groups for all your help throughout the event.


The Franklin July 4th Coalition needs your help. This is our third year as a community volunteer group. We have the sole mission of preserving our 33rd year of the July 4th celebration.

We rely upon fundraising events and donations to help provide fireworks, the parade and children events during our 5 day town celebration.  This year we need YOUR direct help.  A small tax deductible donation will help us reach our fund raising goal and thereby allow us to keep the celebration an exciting town wide event.

Thanks you for your support!

There are two ways to donate this year to make it easy for everyone.

Thanks to everyone who has made a donation this year.
