The Franklin Lions Club is going into a very busy season and we will once again be calling on the support of this fine community. We recently held a White Cane Candy Day. We appreciated the donations put in our white buckets as we stood at various intersections in town. This money will go strictly to assist those in need of eye exams and glasses. We are in the process of our summer Film Festival campaign. This year in co-operation with the Ruby Cinemas, the Children’s Film Festival will run for 11 weeks.
Family friendly entertainment will be provided every Tuesday and Thursday with movie showings at 10 a.m. and noon. Our letters asking for donations will be in the mail any time now. If anyone would like to help promote this activity for the children, you may take a contribution to the theater or give to any Lion member.
Last but not least, it will soon be time for our annual Chicken BBQ on the 4th of July. This is the event that allows us to give four scholarships to local students every year. Not only will your stomach be full but your heart can feel good knowing you helped a student get a better education when you join us to eat. Tickets for the BBQ are available from all members or at the fairgrounds the day of the meal. To all who support our endeavors to serve the community we thank you in advance.
