The official delegation from Franklin traveled to Bad Soden am Taunus, Germany in August 2016 where Mayor Ken Moore signed the official “Golden Book” for Bad Soden. The delegation consisted of Mayor Moore and his wife Linda, Alderman Pearl Bransford, Bad Soden Chair Patricia Kriebel and her husband Robert. Board members Corrisa Wiest and husband Kurt, board members Janice Litvack, Summer Sheldon and uncle Don Long, Franklin Noon Rotary President Tom Thomson and businesswoman Pam Lewis.

The celebration consisted of the 825th anniversary of Bad Soden and the 300th anniversary of the Protestant Bell Tower. There was much to celebrate.

The Bad Soden delegation will travel to Franklin in June 2017 for the official signing of the official Sister City relationship. We are now in the process of making all the plans for the delegations visit here for the official signing.

Anyone interested in assisting with the preparation should contact Sister Cities of Franklin and Williamson County or Patricia Kriebel directly at or
