We invite you to be part of Franklin's historic Village Center by volunteering with Main Street Franklin.
As a volunteer-driven organization, Main Street Franklin's results are due to our volunteers who give freely of their time and talents. All of the behind-the-scenes workers and the leadership structure for the entire organization, including the Board of Directors, Committee Chairs and members, as well as our various Event Chairpersons, are volunteers. Without these people - without you - Main Street Franklin cannot exist.
Who Can Join the MSF Team?
Everyone! Residents, downtown business and property owners are encouraged to become involved with Main Street Franklin through committee participation or as a volunteer with our events and activities produced and co-sponsored throughout the year.
If you are interested, please fill out our Volunteer Interest Form and then send the form via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or via physical mail to: Main Street Franklin, 32325 Franklin Road, Franklin, MI 48025. We'll find the perfect place to utilize your talents!
The Organization Committee's responsibility is to build support within the community and to keep Main Street Franklin in good working order. This is done by raising money, developing leadership, recruiting volunteers, communicating about Main Street Franklin and its progress, and developing good accounting procedures.
