It takes a village

Community leaders gathered outside South-Star Bank in Franklin on Tuesday to receive a presentation from the Franklin Volunteer Fire Department, Franklin Police Department, Franklin Advocate, American Legion and the Robertson County EMS.

Many will recall the flag over Franklin which flew attached to the FVFD Ladder Truck following the April 13 tornado which destroyed a good portion of the south side of Franklin. Fire Fighters, Aaron Travis, Kevin Gassen, Kenny Diebold and Jimmy Redden along with Dennis Phillips hoisted the flag as a reminder and morale boost for the community.
