You are invited to be a part of the extraordinary celebration of friends and families who will converge at Franklinton Center at Bricks located at 281 Bricks Lane, Whitakers, North Carolina.  Activities for Franklinton Center Day 2017 will begin at 10:00 a.m. and end at 5:00 p.m.
Franklinton Center at Bricks is an amazing conference and retreat center visited by people from the local community and all over the U.S.  The Center boldly lives into its mission to promote social justice, spiritual growth, health, heritage, racial justice, economic empowerment and community development. 

This year’s theme is a resounding affirmation of the Center’s commitment: BOLDLY EMBRACING OUR VISION: Healthy Lifestyles, Vibrant Communities, and a Just World.
We are proud to announce that Franklinton Center Day’s keynote speaker will be United States Congressman G.K.
