Gallery 50 Hosts New Exhibit On August 5 

The Arts Alliance of Greater Waynesboro (AAGW) invites the public to an opening reception for a new exhibit in Gallery 50, “IN-SIGHTS” on Friday, August 5 from 5:30 – 8 pm. at 50 West Main Street, Waynesboro, PA.

The exhibit showcases the work of 5 artists, many of whom will be at this opening. The reception will include refreshments and live music from the Note Riders, in the adjacent Music Makers’ space. Admission is free.

“We are delighted to feature the work of these fine artists: paintings by Kirby Heltebridle, Robyn Jacobs, Patricia McCleary, and Ann Ruppert; along with photographs by Dan Mangan,” said Marti Yeager, Gallery 50 Curator.

“Each piece of art reveals the artists’ unique insights into what they see before them, either visually or in their mind’s eye. In other words, that which they have in-sight.”

Following the reception, the exhibit will be on display through October 29. Gallery 50 is open on Fridays from 5 – 8 pm, Saturdays from 11:30 am – 2:30 pm, and by appointment. In addition, the full exhibit will soon be available to browse and purchase on the gallery’s online shop at:

Waynesboro Council Meeting: What You Missed

During the Borough of Waynesboro’s council meeting on September 20th, a number of significant discussions, resolutions, and announcements were made that impact the local community.

Who We Are

The Franklin County Free Press, established by Vicky Taylor in 2019, emerged as a beacon of local journalism for the residents of Franklin County. Under Vicky's leadership, it quickly became an essential source of news, particularly at a time when major newspaper publications were increasingly overlooking local coverage.

On January 1, 2022, the torch was passed to Nathan Neil and his firm, Neil Publishing, LLC. Neil, a local entrepreneur with multiple thriving businesses in Chambersburg, shares Vicky's fervent commitment to both the community and the world of local journalism.

Rooted in the heart of Franklin County and powered by its residents, the Franklin County Free Press continues to bridge the gap, ensuring that the local stories, events, and issues that matter most to the community remain in the spotlight.
