Working to make Franklin a destination for travelers, members of the Tourist Development Authority discussed several grant proposals and events that are in the works for 2011 at their last meeting held in January.

The TDA offers grants to help develop tourism in Franklin by supporting groups or persons wanting to host an event and by promoting these events with advertising displayed on seven billboards leased by the TDA.

Jeff Cloer of the Wayah Insurance Group has been awarded a professional degree in the field of long-term care, Certified in Long- Term Care (CLTC). The program is independent of the insurance industry and focuses on providing insurance professionals the tools they need to meet their client’s long-term care needs.

“Our agency is very sensitive to the needs of our community” Cloer said. “Many of our clients have experienced the devastating effects chronic illness has on their families.”
