The BEN FRANKLIN SOCIETY delivered, for the 5th year, a Franklin County School System Educational Field Trip for disadvantaged 4th Grade Elementary School Children at Dr. Peggy McGhee’s Farm in Franklinton, NC.
A “Williamsburg-for-the-Day” is setup with 13 Learning Stations which the children rotate through in groups of 6-10 every 15 minutes with focus upon: Blacksmithing, Clothing&Needlework, Underground Railroad, Declaration of Independence (see photo below), Pottery Making, Farm Animals and Wool Making, Open Hearth Cooking, Kitchen Gardening, Agriculture&Farm Crops, Beekeeping, Keeping the Harvest, Soap Making& House Chores and Woodworking.
The 2-Day Educational Event was held on Tue-Wed, October 27-28, 2016. Nearly 200 Students attended from the Royal and Long Mill Elementary Schools.
The book selection is “A Man Called Ove” by Fredrik Backman.

In June 2016, we conducted a BreadWorks Dining & Entertainment Survey of Society Members. We used SurveyMonkey in collaboration with our MailChimp hosted Membership Database to distribute and summarize the findings of our 10-Question online Survey.
To see the findings of our Survey, tabulated and graphed by SurveyMonkey, download the results file (in Adobe Reader .pdf format) using the following link:
We were pleased to find the high-level of satisfaction expressed to each Question in the Survey.
We plan to use this low-cost technology again in the future to solicit Member Feedback on other Society matters.

We are collaborating with 92Y (The 92nd Street Y in New York City), the Hoover Institution (Stanford University) and Citizen University (Seattle, WA) and have become a “Ben Franklin Circle” – a new nationwide initiative they formed to promote the “13 Virtues of Ben Franklin” originally conceived in 1727 and which Ben Franklin saw as a basis for self and community improvement. Our Society was approached to support this initiative, and we have agreed to do so. Find out more by using these website links:
