Trailers will help to keep these activities accessible to the Franklin County community.

“Being able to provide the Franklin County Parks & Recreation department with a new trailer is a great feeling,” says a member of the Pro-Line team. “Many of our team members are active in the local community, so we’re\ excited to contribute something valuable in our own backyard.”

The enclosed and open trailer dealer has been a long-time supporter of Franklin County Parks & Recreation. In the past, Pro-Line Trailers has worked with Franklin County Parks & Recreation by contributing in ways like sponsoring the 15 th Annual Ramble Weekend event.

“The trailer will be used to make events like the ‘Movies on the Move’ series possible, which requires a 20-foot screen to be safely transported from location to location,” the Pro-Line team member adds. “We’re proud that this trailer will be a valuable tool in enriching the local community.”
