The Johnson County Crop Hunger Walk committee thanks the following for their Oct. 7 walk support: Franklin Police Department, Whiteland Fire Department, Franklin College, Franklin Parks & Recreation, Rush Graphics, Grace United Methodist Church, First Christian Church of Bargersville, The InterChurch Food Pantry, and all the groups and individuals that walked, and those who donated food and money. The initial commitment was more than $11,000 and growing significantly. The total amount will be known by year end. Additionally, the food pantry bus was loaded with needed supplies. It’s a blessing to see the diversity of religious denominations, churches and groups working together.

The winner of the Johnson County Right to Life mother-to-be drawing at the Franklin Fall Festival was Jessica Foxallee of Bargersville. Thank you to all who participated in the drawing at the Johnson County Right to Life booth.

Johnson County Right to Life,


I would like some hearts for Darren Thompson and 15 or more of his fellow church members of the Franklin Community Church for their help in spreading the trail mulch on the trails at the new urban forest in Franklin. Their help was much appreciated, as was that of Meg Jones Goss, who spent the time to mark off the trail route, and the parks department for their effort in preparing the trails for mulch. This is the first step in the tree planting of the flooded area on the south side of the lawn.

Thank you to Franklin Lowe’s, Greenwood Lowe’s, Carter Lumber in Franklin and Dann’s Hardware in Trafalgar for the donation of lumber for Relay For Life of Franklin. Your generous donation is greatly appreciated; and a huge thank-you to Tony and Theresa Bullock for cutting that lumber for our luminaries that will line the pavement at our next relay, June 8 and 9. Such good people doing such great work for a great cause. Blessings to you all.

Hearts go to the students, staff and parents of Greenwood Middle School for the support they have shown for our fall athletic teams. Special hearts go to our girls’ cross-country team for being county and Mid-State champions, our boys’ cross-country team for being Mid-State champs, and our seventh-grade football team for winning the Mid-State crown. Keep up the good work.
