Franklin Park 4th Friday Summer Concert Series:

A Story of Generosity and Community

Franklin Park Free ConcertsIf you live in the Corinth Learning Tree neighborhood like our family, you may have enjoyed the Fourth Friday Summer Concert Series in Franklin Park through the years. I’ve always thought this free event would be a great place for the Learning Tree to add some fun so I called Parks and Rec and asked about getting involved. “Not us,” said Parks and Rec., “the concerts are sponsored by a neighborhood church.”

A little puzzled, I sent off an email, made a visit to the church and discovered a story of generosity and community in our own backyard. Click here for the whole story.
