As an addition to your recent excellent article on John and Dorothy Crawford, may I add my own two cents. As a member of the Franklin Gem and Mineral Society, the public should know these two citizens were original founding members of our club, and occasionally still attend meetings.
On at least one occasion, they also gave a presentation on a current political topic that affected Maconians. Would that all citizens were to stay so well informed. Also, as a Senior Companion at our Senior Services Center, it was wonderful to see our center named for them in a special ceremony. If you have not visited our center, you should. The array of services available and the spotless appearance of our center, cause many other western counties to visit for their own enrichment.
We should be proud, not only for the Crawfords to have seeded such an accomplishment, but that we live in an area that pays such special attention to the betterment of all citizens.
Thank you, John and Dorothy, for your inspiration.
