Neighborhood Lending Library – Neighborhood Project

Having a community lending library was a project that was started a few years ago. This lending library would be a great way to:

  • Share books with your neighbors
  • Meet and talk with your neighbors
  • Create memories for kids in the neighborhood

We obtained an old newspaper box and came up with an idea of adding a tapered roof to it. That’s about it so far. The board members are all very busy and we just have not had the time needed to make this a reality.

So we need support from others in the neighborhood to help make this idea become an addition to the neighborhood. Please let us know if you have an interest in this project. If there is interest, we are going to start a committee to get this project moving again. Just send us an email or reach out to a board member. Our email address is FranklinKnollsHOA@gmail.com

Neighborhood Bonfire Saturday, October 16th

Join us for a bonfire at the pump house Saturday, October 16th at 6:30PM. We thought this would be a fun way for the neighborhood to get together.

We will have S’mores kits and of course the bonfire to make them on.

Just bring a chair and your choice of beverages/snacks. You might also want to bring a flashlight for walking back in the dark.

Hope to see you there!

Want to help?   We are looking for:

  • Donations of plants.  Hosta’s for sure.  Have something else you think would work well in our beds?  let us know. 
  • Planting team.   We would like to schedule a day/time to plant the donated plants.  We can work around your schedule too.  

We would like to get communication going soon and maybe hold a meeting via Zoom.
