FCCC January Breakfast - Crossroads: Change in Rural America
The Smithsonian is coming to Franklin County! January’s Chamber breakfast is a prelude to the Smithsonian’s traveling exhibit Crossroads: Change in Rural America, on view at the Great Falls Discovery Center in Turners Falls this year from February 5th to March 18th. The breakfast program features several business leaders who chose to come to Franklin County to live and work. What brought them here? What has kept them here? Our presenters will touch on some of the themes of the Crossroads exhibit, such as Identity, Land, Community, Persistence, and Managing Change.
Thank you to our breakfast sponsors - Friends of theGreat Falls Discovery Center, LifePath and BusinessWest
