The Sidney Maxwell Bench
A small reminder of a great man
Over the spring and summer, in conjunction with the Federated church in Franklin, we collected over 30,000 plastic bags to be recycled.
One of the results of this effort, aside from lessening our environmental impact was the placement of the 'Sidney Maxwell Bench' (pictured, right) in front of the Federated church in Franklin. Peggy Maxwell said, 'Sidney was a lover of the earth, so I am sure he would be honored.' You can read more about the bench and Sidney here. Peggy has sent a letter to Good Shepherd where she sends her thanks for our help in making the bench a reality and for all that we did for Sidney and his family. She said wanted us to know that 'Sidney loved the church and the people in it! It was a big part of his life.' We give thanks for the blessing of knowing Sidney and being instructed by his love, wisdom and example.
