Living up to their bright red "Polk Center Strong" T-shirts, a throng of more than 500 area residents rallied Monday morning in Franklin to protest the proposed closing of Polk State Center.

The gathering in front of the Venango County Courthouse, an event coordinated by the AFSCME labor union, area legislators and the Franklin and Venango Area Chambers of Commerce, was focused on opposing the pending shutdown of the center.
