FRANKLIN - The Franklin College men's basketball team fanned out across the community on Wednesday morning, October 25th, on a mission to read to nearly 800 kindergarten and first-grade students in the Franklin Community Schools and St. Rose Catholic School. 

The annual community service project is sponsored by the National Association of Basketball Coaches.  The Grizzlies read books to 12 different classes at Needham Elementary, Creekside Elementary, Union Elementary, Webb Elementary, Northwood Elementary and St. Rose. 

Students received certificates naming them to the Griz Reading Team and entitling them and their families to free admission to Franklin College home games this season.
