Volunteer Opportunity: Main Street Festival in Franklin

The Heritage Foundation's returns to downtown Franklin April 29-30, 2017. The free springs celebration, which is one of the largest events in the Southeast, is expected to draw a crowd of thousands for a fun-filled weekend of music, arts and crafts, food and children's activities. Main Street Festival is a wonderful event not just to sell student-made products that help fund the program at BrightStone but it is also a great opportunity for more people to hear and get excited about our mission and vision. Since it is such a largely attended event, we have an audience that may not otherwise know about BrightStone and raise awareness for the adults with special needs who live and work right here in their community. BrightStone will have a booth located at the corner of 2nd and Main Street in the same spot as years past on Saturday ONLY. We will have 2 shifts:

9:00 AM - 1:30 PM

1:30 PM - 5:30 PM

We are looking for five people for each each shift. One volunteer to assist with bagging and wrapping at checkout, two working in the booth with stocking and selling and two handing out samples and selling in and around the booth. If you have an outgoing personality, would enjoy sharing about BrightStone at this outdoor event where it may be a little warm but a lot of fun then we need YOU! This could be a great service project for a small group, Sunday school class, civic group or club. If you would like to volunteer or have questions, please contact Lee Rose at or call 615-790-4888.
