It is our great honor and pleasure to bring to you, our best November issue yet!
Recently, our community was ranked fourth on a list of the nation’s best places to live by Money magazine. It is not only for the economic and rapid growth that enhances our town; it’s the businesses and people that reside here, that makes Franklin the best place to call home.
This is one of my favorite times of the year, as we approach the holiday season and all the local festivities that Franklin offers. We remember to give thanks with the friends and families we love, and to give back to those around us in need.
We have an exciting issue to share with you this month, featuring the one and only, Dolly Parton!
Dolly is such an impressionable icon and role model, and she continues to inspire so many people, of all ages, around the globe. She is known for her giving heart, beautiful smile, and that unforgettable voice. She has touched so many lives throughout the years, with her music, movies, and remarkable charities.
Her Imagination Library foundation is one that I personally hold dear to my heart. My son received her books up until he was three years old, and it was always exciting to get a new book in the mail every month. My son is now 14, and I will always cherish those memories of getting to read to him every night. We are grateful for the time she spent responding to our questions and we hope that you will enjoy reading the story as much as we enjoyed producing it. We also wish to thank Danny Nozell, CTK Management and Kirt Webster, for making all this possible.
But most of all, we want to thank all of our readers and businesses for your loyalty and support.
We wish you a peaceful and joyful Thanksgiving holiday, from our family to yours!
– Christian Houston
