On May 22, the Franklin Square Historical Society received the Community Service Award at the SCOPE Educational Services dinner at Villa Lombardi’s in Holbrook.
Nancy Youngfert, the President of the Society accepted a plaque for the Historical Society. The Society was nominated by the Franklin Square UFSD for developing a hands-on program to mesh with the fourth-grade curriculum on field trips to the Franklin Square Museum.
The field trips involved all the fourth-grade classes from our three elementary schools and gave them a unique look at the history of Franklin Square.
The board of the Historical Society and our docents are happy to provide this additional historical connection to our community. The students each received a junior membership card and are invited back with their parents and grandparents on the first Sunday of every month from 2 to 4 pm.
The Franklin Square Museum is located at 861 Naple Ave. in Franklin Square. Visit the Society’s website for other events upcoming at the museum at: https://fshistoricalsociety.org .
