Cultural Arts Council Gazebo Unveiling Set For Sept. 16

Submitted by the Franklin Township Cultural Arts Council.

The Franklin Township Cultural Arts Council (FTCAC) officially ‘unveils’ its ADA-compliant Performance Arts Gazebo, located on the tree-lined pasture of the Municipal Complex, at 5 p.m. Sept. 16.

The public is cordially invited to witness the Gazebo’s ribbon cutting ceremony where the FTCAC leadership team will publicly acknowledge its gratitude to its donors and patrons who steadfastly supported the construction of the Gazebo through financial and in-kind donations.

In 2011 the Franklin Township Council established the FTCAC. Since its inception, our mission of bringing our community closer together through the Arts has included sponsorship of Poetry readings by township students and local/regional authors, musical performances by local artists, and photography exhibits by township residents at the library. We’ve also convened community-driven meetings in order to gauge residents’ interest in and promotion of the Arts in Franklin, and, in collaboration with the Board of Education, continue to offer theater and drama classes to our township children.

The installation of the Gazebo is yet another component of the FTCAC’s mission, and we envision its future usage for numerous and diverse cultural events, wedding ceremonies, as well as patriotic and memorial ceremonies. The performance Gazebo’s octagonal architectural structure was deliberately chosen to represent our township’s eight villages, and its stylish Cupola pays homage to our Dutch heritage.

The spacious interior with benches for seating welcomes its visitors to enjoy a moment of relaxation and reflection. As eloquently stated by our major donor, Mr. Vimal Sodhani, the Gazebo is a “symbol in Franklin Township to represent peace and harmony.”
