Franklin bicentennial meeting

A first meeting with horse owners was held for the Bicentennial Parade in April 2020. The event will include a reenactment of President Teddy Roosevelt’s visit to Franklin and ride down Willow Street with his Rough Riders, as well as paying homage to the Buffalo Soldiers. Also, a Bicentennial Trail Ride will join in conjunction with the Harvest Moon Festival in October 2020. These events are slated for a year-long celebration for Franklin’s bicentennial, which was incorporated in 1820. Present at the session were Darrell Washington, Clyde Washington, Horatio Washington, Todd Pellerin, Peter Soprano, Ricky Theriot, Wendell Bogan, Diane Wiltz and Ed Tiger Verdin, co-chairs, and Tammy Rogers, administrative assistant.
