The Franklin High School Class of 1963 held its 50th Class Reunion on June 22.

Ann Melton, author of “I Will Lift Up My Eyes,” will be having a book signing at Dalton’s Christian Books Friday, Aug. 23, from 12 to 3 p.m. and at Books Unlimited from 5 to 8 p.m.

In this book you will read true stories of what Melton calls “God’s unlimited power.”

“In these personal stories you can see how prayer and praise direct God’s power into your life,” said Melton. “Discover how prayer can reenergize you; renew your spirit, mind, and body; and provide healing. These stories have a message of hope as they illustrate how prayer can calm the storms in your life and leave you better able to cope with the stresses of day-to-day living.”


This week’s Thursdays at the Library program will feature “Touching the Face of History - the Story of the Plott Hound, North Carolina’s Official State Dog.”

The Plott bear hound is the official state dog of North Carolina and is widely recognized as one of the world's premier big game hunting hounds. The breed is unique in many ways, including its Germanic origins, distinctive appearance, fierce loyalty, tenacity, and intelligence. But it is the story of the breed that truly sets it apart from all others. And it is a story that award winning author and historian Bob Plott, the great-great-great grandson of Johannes George Plott, is uniquely qualified to tell.
