CEO Comments On April 28, 2020 at 9:00 AM the Franklin Financial Services Corporation will hold its annual shareholders meeting. Unlike any previous year this meeting will be held virtually as the Company’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and in compliance with the laws and regulations of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Due to the change in how the Annual Meeting will be conducted many of the comments and presentations typical and customary of our annual meetings will be suspended. This year your Chairman’s remarks will be shortened, there will not be a guest speaker and there will not be comments from our Chief Financial Officer. Your company’s CEO / President will make some specific comments and together the CEO and CFO will answer questions but otherwise the actions of the annual meeting will be taken in a direct business only manner. We hope that in 2021 we can return to the format you are accustomed to, perhaps running in tandem with a virtual presentation. To supplement the annual meeting, we are releasing the following investor presentation on Form 8(k). The information enclosed in the presentation will inform the reader of the Company’s actions in the face of the pandemic to protect and help our employees, our customers and the communities we serve. Unlike typical annual meetings when the results from the previous fiscal year and the most recent quarter are discussed we will not be spending much time to focus on the past. The 2019 annual results and the results of the first quarter of 2020 are thoroughly discussed in the Company’s Form 10(k) and 2020 first quarter earnings release, respectively. Suffice it to say 2019 was a record year for your company and the results from the first quarter of 2020, before consideration of the extra provision for loan loss, would have placed it as one of the best quarters in the Company’s history. F&M TRUST Franklin Financial Services Corporation 3

CEO Comments We must all recognize that this is not a typical year. The real value of our performance in 2019 and at the beginning of this year was to further financially strengthen your Company so we can face the probable economic challenges the pandemic is bringing with an ability to support our customers and communities. Ultimately all of this brings value to you, our shareholders. While our credit quality today is excellent, we recognize that the Qualitative Factors underlying our loan portfolio are changing and that future economic pain as a result of the pandemic and the steps taken to control the pandemic are felt by all of us. Recognizing the potential challenges ahead we believe it is prudent to set aside additional funds in the loan loss provision now, when we can, so we can operate effectively over the next year in helping our customers and communities reestablish themselves. We believe this is an important role and responsibility of your company and we intend to prepare for and honor that role. You will see that your Board decided, unanimously, to maintain the quarterly cash dividend at $0.30 per share. We are able to do so because our capital and earnings are strong. Over the next 90 days we hope to have a clearer picture of the challenges that lie ahead, and we will continue to adapt so as to be effective in the new environment. We have made a lot of changes to the bank over the last several years and those changes have now positioned us to move confidently forward into the new challenges that wait for us. We appreciate the support of our shareholders and I am available to you at anytime to listen to your concerns and ideas and answer your questions to the best of my ability. Be safe, F&M TRUST Franklin Financial Services Corporation 4
