The time has come to gather round with family and friends. For us to take the time to slow down and enjoy the fruits of our labor. Remember the good times, remember our loved ones who aren’t here with us, no matter what the reason, we know we miss them. Have safe travel over your holiday travel, whether its Christmas weekend or New Years weekend, we wish you a time of great peace and love with your family and can’t wait to start 2016 off right!

Special thanks go out to all  of the Police, Fire Department and First Responders who are on duty and protecting us around the clock. We want to extend and even warmer gratitude and send our thoughts and prayers out to all the men and women serving our country, protecting our freedoms, and keeping America and her allies safe, 24 hours a day / 7 days a week / 365 days a year. We’re proud of our country and the men and women who fight for us.

The Franklin, NC Chamber of Commerce appreciates all of our members and all of the kind visitors that make Franklin, NC the perfect place to visit, and the last place you’ll want to settle down and live out the good life in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Merry Christmas, from all of us, to all of you, and have a wonderful day!
