Two annual community events received funding from Macon County’s Tourism Development Commission (TDC) last Thursday at its monthly meeting.
Although Main Street Program Director Linda Schlott was unable to attend Thursday’s meeting, TDC members considered her $2,000 grant request, which was sent to committee members in advance. Gary Shields motioned to approve the request with Kristian Flaig seconding. The motion carried unanimously. On July 9, members from the Town of Franklin’s Tourism Development Authority (TDA) also unanimously voted to approve the use of $2,000 to help fund the promotion of PumpkinFest. The festival is to be held Oct. 19 and 20.
