A Note From the FSCA Board

We hope Franklin Square and surrounding area students had a great first week of school!  Now that school is back in session, and fall will be upon us shortly, we have some fantastic events coming up throughout the rest of the year.  We have now posted the dates for all FSCA General Meetings, our Fall Festival, our Winter Festival, and many other community events such as street fairs, festivals and more!  We look forward to seeing everyone at all the upcoming events!  

Please check the Upcoming FSCA Events and Upcoming Community Events sections of our website often - we update the events every week!

Speaking of events this year, we had a great turnout for our first annual Bus Trip to Atlantic City - it was written up in the Franklin Square Bulletin with some pictures:

 

A big thank you to Toni Croce for coming up with the idea for the trip, and planning it!  All who attended had a great time - it was a success, and we look forward to many more in the future!

We look forward to seeing everyone at our upcoming FSCA General Meeting on September 26, 7pm at Polk Street School.

'Round The Square

Philly Pretzel Factory

The Philly Pretzel Factory will be coming to Franklin Square at 197 Franklin Avenue!  For details about this new business, please visit their website at https://phillypretzelfactory.com/about.

Shillings Hardware Closing

Shillings True Value Hardware, located at 922 Hempstead Turnpike, will be closing at the end of September.  The owners thank everyone for their business over the many years they have been in the neighborhood.  The owners have been attempting to find a business to rent out half of the space, and make the store smaller, however, the efforts have not been successful.  They will be open through the end of September with 20-50% off their inventory.
