Yard of the Month

Yard of the Month

Our Yard of the Month begins on May 1st and ends in October.  We are asking our Franklinville residents to nominate someone with a beautiful yard, by calling, or emailing the Town Hall before the last day of the month.  The chosen Yard of the Month will be featured on our Town Facebook page and have the Yard of the Month sign posted in their yard for the month. We hope this will encourage everyone to get out and beautify their yards, which will then add to the landscape of our Town. This will be an annual event running from late spring through mid fall.

Rabies is 100% preventable.

If you see a bat in your home:
• Do not handle the bat
• Call 911 right away! Also call Randolph County Public Health at 336-317-6200 and Animal Services at 336-683-8235
• See medical attention IMMEDIATELY if you see a bat in the home.

Did you know….
• Without immediate treatment, rabies is nearly always fatal.
• It is hard to know if you have been bitten by a bat due to the size of their teeth.
• Many people do not feel bat bites and marks disappear quickly.
