I'm thru hiking the Appalachian trail. For the past few days I've been hiking with a young man from Germany. As we were approaching Franklin we encountered several residents at the road crossings giving snacks and beverages, trail magic we call it, to the hikers.

I wish to express how proud I am to be a member of this community and Amercan Legion Post 108. We, here in Macon County set the bar high for the rest of the stops on the A.T. for the “Warrior Hikers.”

Saturday, March 30, was a great success. Carlie Nicols and the ladies of “Quilts of Valor,” presented a quilt to each hiker and a “Bandana of Valor” to Cooper (Service Dog). Mr. Loyd Hall cooked an awesome barbecue enjoyed by all.
