Franklin County News - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

It’s be­gin­ning to feel a lot like Christ­mas.

I know it’s still early Novem­ber, but there is al­ready a fes­tive feel­ing in the air as we count­down to De­cem­ber 25 - and a well-earned hol­i­day break for all.

Shops are sell­ing Christ­mas stock, I can hear the odd carol even play­ing as I pe­ruse the shelves, and the Christ­mas tree at the Franklin County News of­fice is up in all its fes­tive glory.

We’ve got the tree up nice and early this year to wel­come gifts and do­na­tions to our an­nual Smiles for Christ­mas ap­peal, where we hope to spread a lit­tle joy to clients of Franklin Fam­ily Sup­port Ser­vices.

Each year, this ap­peal is greatly sup­ported by read­ers and we are hop­ing our won­der­ful com­mu­ni­ties con­tinue to show their gen­eros­ity in 2017. Julie Kaio News Direc­tor
