Silver City Day!

We participated in the 78th annual “Silver City Day Festival” on Saturday October 5th, 2013 at Emerson Park, located at 29th and Strong Ave.  KCKS.  We distributed hundreds of flyers announcing our Fall Festival and Rededication of Franklin Center on Saturday October 26th, 2013 (11am-4pm).  We also sold our new Franklin Center T-shirts, started a mailing list and made countless new friends that we are certainly grateful for.   (By: Ruperto Aguirre)


Fall Festival

First Annual Franklin Center Fall Festival

Saturday October 26th, 2013

On Saturday October 26th, 213 come to the Franklin Center, 1403 Metropolitan Ave to help us celebrate the new life of the Franklin Center. It will not be open until the summer of 2016 but we would like to share the plans for its re-construction  and renovation.  We would also like to get your support and input.

As we work towards opening the Franklin Center, it will be a place that the community can call its own.  We are striving for it to be a Community Center that is open to all ages that will have a neighborhood café, water-spray park, play equipment and many more things!

At the Fall Festival there will be food, live music, clowns bouncy house/moonwalk, prizes and much more.  Come join us between 10am and 5pm.  There will be a kid’s carnival from 1-4pm.

 If you need more information, contact Ruperto Aguirre, (913) 689-8430 or the Franklin Center (913) 213-3250.  Any proceeds or donations will go to the funding of the center itself.  We hope to see you there.
