On behalf of the Franklin Young Professionals, we would like to extend our gratitude and appreciation for the support from this community towards our “Macon Waves Ducky Derby” event that recently partnered with the “NC Big Sweep” and “Land Trust for the Little Tennessee.”
Together we were able to pull one ton of waste from numerous waterways in Franklin like the Little Tennessee River and Cullasaja River. Thank you to the many volunteers that made this all possible. And thank you to Guy Gooder at Gooder Grafix for hosting the N.C. Big Sweep year after year. We also would like to thank Jill Wiggins with LTLT for setting up an educational experience at the N.C. Big Sweep. We look forward to working with this community much more in the very near future.
