With the start of a new year and a new decade now underway, Franklin Tomorrow has announced two events for January that residents from across Williamson County might want to attend.
All mayors from towns throughout the county are invited for the first Breakfast with the Mayors event of 2020 scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 28, at Rolling Hills Community Church in Franklin.
Before that rolls around, Franklin Tomorrow will present its monthly FrankTalks lecture series Monday from 9-10:30 a.m. at the Williamson campus of Columbia State Community College. A coffee social will be held from 9 a.m.-9:30 a.m. and the program will start at 9:30.
The topic for the program is, “Top People to Know in 2020.” Panelists will include Justin Foster, general manager of The Harpeth hotel in downtown Franklin, and Patrick Cassidy, artistic director for Studio Tenn Theater. Additional panelists will be announced later.
Parking for FrankTalks is available in Columbia State’s new parking garage and the event will take place on the second floor of the Administration Building.

FrankTalks would not be able to take place without the support of presenting sponsor, Renasant Bank, and sustaining partner, Williamson Medical Center. It is held on the first Monday of the month at various locations across Franklin.
Breakfast with the Mayors is held quarterly and is free to the public thanks to the partnership of partners including Pinnacle Financial Partners, as well as Williamson Medical Center, Hazen and Sawyer, and Williamson County Association of Realtors. Additional support this year comes from Patterson Hardee & Ballentine CPAs and Andrews Transportation Group. Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant and Community Coffee will provide breakfast on Jan. 28.
Additional 2020 dates for Breakfast with the Mayors are April 28, July 28 and Oct. 27. Topics and guests will be announced closer to each date.
