First Presbyterian Church, Franklin, celebrated a 10-year commitment to feeding the hungry through participation in the Heifer International Organization on Sunday, April 21. As part of the celebration, the Service and Missions Team served cheese and other dishes made from goat’s milk, and gave attendees the opportunity to “get up-close and personal” with visiting baby goat, Beatrice, owned by Joel and Arvil Scott of Otto.

Team member Nick Potts, who visited the Heifer International ranch with the First Presbyterian youth group as a teen, explained why goats are so important in helping the hungry and relieving poverty.

Donnie Clay, coordinator for Pickin’ on the Square released a statement regarding the start date for Pickin’ and the location.

“Well, it’s that time again. Time for Pickin’ on the Square. I’m ready and hope you are, too. This year the location of Pickin’ will be changed to the Town Hall. There are to be some great renovations to be done to the gazebo starting in July. We have done several events at the town hall parking before and they were good.

“Pickin’ is scheduled to begin May 11. We have a great schedule for this year, some new acts, acts you have requested back, and some great dancers. Look for the schedule in next week’s Macon County News.”

The Western Carolina University’s Pride of the Mountains Marching Band just got the surprise of a lifetime. After being asked to gather together last Tuesday morning, band members, along with WCU staff members were surprised to receive the highly anticipated news that they have been selected to perform in the 2014 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Pride of the Mountains will join the line of marching bands in 2014 and begin their performance to the sound of “Let’s Have a Parade,” the iconic phrase that has signaled the start of every Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade since 1924.

Pride of the Mountains was selected to be one of 10 marching ensembles in the 2014 parade beating out more than 175 applicants nationwide. Their outstanding musical ability, marching and performance skills and local recognition reinforced Macy’s decision to showcase the band’s talent during the grand march on Thursday, Nov. 27, 2014.
