The MEC Prom was held this past Saturday, May 26 in Dillard, Ga. It was a night that appealed to all the senses: sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell.

Macon Early College students enjoyed getting dressed to the nines, dancing the night away, and eating exotic foods during the 2014 prom.

This year’s theme was ‘Midnight in Morocco’.

The prom committee covered the ceilings and walls with colorful fabrics, while ottomans, floor cushions, and genuine Persian rugs provided cozy seating.


Mission of ministry is to simply feed the hungry.

On Saturday, May 3, teens and adults filled a storefront on Palmer Street to package meals for hungry children in Western North Carolina and beyond. The event was conducted by The Filling Station, a local non-profit organization that supports Kids Against Hunger.

It is estimated that 1 in 3 to 1 in 4 children in Macon County are food insecure and worldwide, a child dies of hunger every 6 seconds.


The Rotary Club of Franklin honored the 2014 winners of the annual Read2Me Essay contest on Wednesday.

After receiving nearly 100 entries into this year's contest, winners for each of the three grade divisions were carefully selected by a team of Rotary members who volunteered as judges.

Open to all Macon County children in grades 3-8, the annual essay contest gives children the opportunity to showcase their writing talents.

The first and second place winners received a cash prize from the Rotary Club, as did the classroom teachers of the winners.


Read2Me of Macon County will be hosting the first annual “Riding for Read2Me” car show this Saturday at South Macon Elementary School from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. With judges from local car dealerships, the first annual fundraising car show will have trophies to give out for the best rides of the day.

“All proceeds from the Riding for Read2Me Car Show will support the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, which provides children in Macon County a book a month from birth to five years of age,” said Carol Waldroop, member of Read2Me. “Sharing a book with a child is a great way to build a relationship and make a difference in our community in a positive way. Come and join us at South Macon for a fun day of cars, food and trophies.”
