Founder of a nation. Namesake of our town. Ben Franklin said it best when he was famously quoted: “Hide not your talents, they for use were made. What’s a sundial in the shade?” Ben inspired a country as a founding father. And he inspired our town’s founders to name our town after him. It’s a good match. His wisdom flows through the people here, and through us too. He lives on in timeless quotes that are every bit as relevant today as they were when he first coined them. Who can argue with a man who said, “Beer is proof that God wants us to be happy.” Certainly not us. Our talents are on full display every day.
