Daily Weather Briefing for Monday, November 12, 2018




LOCAL VETERANS DAY OBSERVANCE

The Town of Franklin will observe Veterans Day today. A parade will take place at 10:30 am from the town hall to the gazebo on Iotla Street, followed by a ceremony at the gazebo that will include Radford Penland as the keynote speaker, a rifle salute, a wreath-laying, and taps. If you plan on attending, please make sure to bring rain gear or an umbrella with you in case the rain arrives before or during the observance.

Here is a video of the local parade that took place in 2016 when wildfires in the area produced enough smoke making it sometimes hard to see from one end of Main Street to the other:
