Published DateFRANKLIN — The Franklin Cemetery Association will hold a public Mother's Day event from noon to 1 p.m.
Superintendent Kris Meinhold of the cemetery association says the approximately one-hour long program will begin with light refreshments followed by a brief address and prayer by a local clergyman. Mothers will then have an opportunity to approach the podium to briefly share with all those gathered something about their mothers and the impact they had on their lives.
Meinhold says the event is named ''Celebrating Moms'' and is like those held in many cemeteries across the country although he believes it is the first of its kind held in New Hampshire.
He says that donations will be accepted at the event for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
Meinhold says that there will be a surprise closing which he says will ''bring some funs and lots of smiles.''
