For two Franklin families, a community Christmas dinner has become their own family tradition.
Franklin resident Bill Frosch used to find himself alone on Christmas Day because his grandchildren go elsewhere for the holiday. Now, he spends the holiday helping his community.
Shelly Pietras and her daughters have volunteered at the dinner since the girls were 4 and 8 years old. They join dozens of other volunteers, often more than are needed, to organize the feast.
