Ben Franklin’s Circle

Join us for our monthly Ben Franklin circle every first Saturday of the month! This month's theme is Frugality and we'll be talking ways to budget and save money.


The Ben Franklin Circles bring people together face-to-face to explore two simple goals:

1) to help us improve ourselves and 2) to help us improve our world. The Circles are modeled after Ben Franklin's "Mutual Improvement Club" which he started as a young man and ran throughout his life.


This group will meet to discuss Franklin's virtues and how they relate to our own goals and aspirations - who we want to be and what we want to contribute to the world. The virtues are topics like humility, order, sincerity, and justice. Check out the website and watch the brief video to learn more.


We invite Blue Star Families, caregivers, as well as civilian neighbors with an interest in getting to know local families, building personal relationships and growing a supportive community to participate. If you have any questions or need more information, please contact Shadequa Hampton
