Boy Scout Troop 1099, chartered to Lanier United Methodist Church, is pleased to announce that Dalton Corbin has earned the rank of Eagle Scout. Dalton successfully passed his Eagle Board of Review and has been recognized with a Court of Honor ceremony following completion of his service project at the Bald Ridge Marina Chapel on Lake Lanier.

Dalton’s Eagle Project consisted of dismantling and removing a pair of outdated storage facilities, constructing a new storage building along with new bench seating. His project also included refurbishing the Chapel Cross with new foundation timbers, as well as sanding and repainting the fifteen foot tall steel structure. Bald Ridge Marina Chapel serves as the site of weekly outdoor worship services hosted by Cumming First United Methodist Church from May through September.


Every semester at Franklin High School, seniors are required to complete a project on an approved topic. Students must write a research paper, make a presentation board and present an eight-minute speech in front of a panel of judges before they are permitted to graduate.

FHS senior Maddie Brown decided to work with Sole Hope, an organization which is comprised of passionate, committed people who work toward putting closed-toed shoes on African children, one pair at a time. “Choosing to do Sole Hope for my senior project was the wisest decision I could have made,” said Brown. “It gave me a chance to spread God’s love while helping others, it was my ministry!”


American Legion Post’s Bingo night needs support

With the economy recovering at a painfully slow rate, it is more important than ever to work together to take care of the community. Several organizations throughout Macon County have offered a helping hand to lessen the burden on their neighbors, and the members of American Legion Post 108 have been doing their part by hosting a night of bingo every Friday night to raise money for community needs.

All of the proceeds earned during the bingo games get put directly back into the community.


With temperatures beginning to drop, and the coldest months of winter right around the corner, Franklin native and local Farm Bureau agent, Patrick Jenkins, is gearing up for the third annual “Cold for a Cause” event. Jenkins will load up in a crane which will be parked in front of the Farm Bureau office on Highlands rd. He will remain in the box from noon on Friday until noon on Sunday, totalling 48 hours.

The rain that has poured down around Macon County all week is expected to taper off just in time for Jenkins climb into the crane and make the trip above the county on Friday afternoon.
