Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Corporation (MTEMC) is the presenting sponsor for the 2019 Franklin Tree Lighting Ceremony. Free photos with Santa will be provided by Williamson Medical Center beginning at 5:45 p.m.  Mars Petcare is offering a pet-friendly photo opportunity on the square!  The Downtown Franklin Association is participating with fun happenings in the downtown stores.  They will stay open a little later that night, so shoppers can get an early start on their Christmas shopping.  The Franklin Art Scene will also have the Art Crawl that night happening in many stores.  The Franklin Noon Rotary and the Downtown Franklin Rotary will hand out free refreshments.  “We thank our sponsors and partners who help us give this special gift to our community,” said Mayor Ken Moore.  “We are happy to welcome Jars of Clay and Kathie Lee to celebrate with us this year.  It’s so nice to have families of Franklin join us to light our spectacular tree and help spread Christmas cheer.
