29 Days of Giving

Inspire your heart through giving! Many residents, loved ones, and staff are participating in our 29 Gifts Book Study & Goodwill Movement. We invite everyone to join us this month by focusing on giving. Your gift can be as simple as a phone call, a prayer, a note, or you can send someone a sweet treat created by our Dining Service team. Gifts will be delivered to residents and staff with love!

A Halloween Like No Other

Rumor has it Disney is considering hiring Clark residents for their next rendition of 101 Dalmatian’s! Cruella De Vil, aka Franklin Executive Director, Nicole Swart, rounded up 101 residents and outfitted them with dalmatian costumes made by a cast of wonderful seamstresses. It was truly a remarkable day!
