Franklin Borough soon to be on the move and more!

Great news! Franklin Borough’s DPW were out in force today setting the new FitTrail system! The system is located next to the Franklin Borough’s Senior Center at Franklin Pond. This will be a great location for the Seniors and all who find their way to the always active Franklin pond. A huge thank you to all the staff who have helped to see this task to fruition. It is going to have great impact to the community.

In other news, we have secured Johnny Boys’ Mobile Creations food truck to be our partner in nutrition analysis and recipe planning. We have been working with the owner over the last couple months reviewing their recipes and menu options for a launch right here at the Sussex County YMCA coming this October. The Y serves over 10,000 members of the community, so, Johnny Boys’ truck will have ample opportunity to serve delicious and healthy options to all who come to the Y.
