Thanks to everyone for making Franklin Synergy Bank's Grand Opening such a special occasion. We were delighted to welcome you as we launch Franklin's only locally owned and managed community bank.

The morning of November 16, 2007 was beautiful, crisp and cool, the fire was roaring and we were fortunate to welcome an enthusiastic crowd of 200 friends and family. Those of you who could not join us for our Grand Opening were in our thoughts. You can enjoy the event through these photos.
