The turkey, stuffing and other Thanksgiving leftovers should be just about finished up this weekend.
That’ll give local residents another few days to build up their appetite for barbecue pork and chicken.
In an effort to feed the needy this holiday season, the Franklin Rotary Club will host the Jim Rhoades Memorial Hog Roast from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday in Scott Hall at the Johnson County fairgrounds in Franklin.
Money raised at the event will be split between the Good Cheer Fund and the InterChurch Food Pantry.
The hog roast has been a longtime fundraiser for the annual Good Cheer Fund. Rhoades, owner of Rhoades True Value Hardware in Franklin and a former county commissioner, helped plan the event.
