The Macon County Community Foundation’s (an affiliate of the N.C. Community Foundation) annual mystery dinner theater will be held three nights in a row starting Thursday, Feb. 24 at 6:30 p.m., and will run Friday and Saturday night at Fat Buddies BBQ. Originally scheduled as a two night event, an additional night has been added to accommodate all those interested in attending.

This year’s play, “The Grimm Tales of Mother Goose” is an outrageously hilarious production which pokes fun at the uptight “Politically Correct” atmosphere of the 1990’s. See your favorite, although sensitive, childhood characters as they take part in the Annual Nursery Land Banquet.


The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is coming to Franklin on March 18 at the Franklin High School track.

The event is an overnight community celebration where individuals and teams camp out, barbeque, dance, and take turns walking around a track “relay” style to raise funds to fight cancer. Relay For Life has spread to more than 5,000 communities across the country.

At nightfall, participants will light hundreds of luminara candles around the track in a touching ceremony to honor cancer survivors as well as friends and family members lost to the disease. Relay For Life represents hope that those lost to cancer will not be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day, cancer will be eliminated.


While it isn’t spring outdoors yet, one Franklin daisy scout troop is working diligently to give the gift of an early spring to at least one area organization. Troop #02315, led by Nicole Nelson, is completing a gardening project that will provide a local nursing home with potted herbs in handmade flower pots, which residents can enjoy indoors during the remaining winter months.

The scouts (11 girls in all, ages 5-7) will earn a community service badge for completing this project, but none of them seem to be thinking about that because they are having so much fun along the way!
