All summer long, people familiar with Franklin events will enjoy them bittersweetly. They will revel in carrying on Beith's work in her memory and honor but will shed a tear or two because they miss her. Beith always said it takes a village to put on these events, seldom taking any credit for her work. Now her "village" carries the torch onward - as she would want.
Below are a series of photos from the parade and ice cream social event today.
