It’s time for the 2014 Rotary Read2Me Essay Contest.

In this writing competition, the Rotary Club of Franklin, along with Read2Me and The Macon County News, challenge young writers to address the topic of leadership. The goal of the contest is to encourage young people to gain an understanding of what leadership means and how it should be applied in their lives, both now and when they become adults. It is also to help our young writers recognize that there are both good leaders and bad leaders, and that not all leaders have the same leadership style, or ways of doing things.


The Cartoogechaye Christian Fellowship (CCF) is comprised of the 13 churches in the Cartoogechaye area of Macon County. The mission statement of the CCF is “To demonstrate Christ’s love through unity and service in the Cartoogechaye community.”

Currently, nine churches are active. Through fundraisers they have been able to contribute almost $2,400 to support the school and its staff. Every month while school is in session each teacher and office staff member is recognized with a small thank you gift provided by one of the CCF churches. The CCF held a joint Thanksgiving service and raised almost $500 for the Community Care Clinic. The group also holds potluck dinners and held a Family Fun Day before school started with music, crafts, games, face painting, horse rides, police and fire exhibits, and food. They are planning other ways to help others in our community


Samantha Partridge, 11, has raised $415 to go towards Heifer International.

When she was asked by Rev. Steve Miller, why did you want to raise money for the Heifer project, Samantha said, "I feel very sad when I go to bed and think of people without food and fresh water. I have shelter, food, and water.”

Heifer International also helps in the United States, as close as the Appalachian Mountains.

Samantha wants to thank everyone who supported her, and Peebles Dept. Store for allowing her give to out hot chocolate and raise money on Thanksgiving night.
