Franklin Savings Bank is pleased to announce our partnership with Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice to provide better health and more health education to residents of the Central Lakes Region.

The Bank recently provided a grant to Central VNA to enable them to offer free blood pressure clinics to previously underserved communities. Individuals located in Bristol and Gilford will have access to free blood pressure screenings. The clinics will take place July 31st and August 28th from noon to 1:00 pm at the Bank’s Gilford office located at 11 Sawmill Road. Additional clinics will be held on Tuesday, August 13th from 3:00 to 4:00 pm at the Bank’s Bristol office situated at 350 Lake Street. Participants will have their blood pressure taken, receive health information, obtain referrals to local doctors accepting patients, health counseling, and a swag bag filled with Central VNA items.
