DON'T FORGET: Monday is Martin Luther King Day!

The celebration begins at Vaughn Chapel at 7 PM with a prayer and testimonials.

Then a candlelight walk to Franklin Hall where we will gather in the Panther's Den at 7:30 to hear Mr. George Washington. Many of you remember him from Franklin County High School where he was assistant principal and director of I.T.

After his speech, some soulful refreshments will be served.
