City, Relay sponsor lamp decorating
The City of Franklin and the Relay for Life committee are sponsoring a lamppost decorating contest.
“The City of Franklin is filled with generous, philanthropic people,” Mayor Raymond Harris said. “Many of them would like to participate in Relay for Life, but they are unable to do so due to other commitments. The Relay for Life committee and the City of Franklin are providing an opportunity for participation through the lamp post decorating contest.”
Contestants will be judged on how well they express the theme “Groovin’ for a Cure” and the use of the color purple. The lampposts will be judged April 26, and the winners will be announced April 27.
Entry forms can be picked up at city hall. The entry fee, which will be donated to the American Cancer Society, is $10. Contestants may begin decorating April 5 and decorating ends April 25. Lampposts will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. Additionally, all decorated lampposts must have the name of the person, business, organization or school that is participating as a part of the display. Decorations must be removed by May 1.
Break out your “The Brady Bunch,” “Good Times,” “What’s Happenin’” and “The Partridge Family” DVDs, the color purple and get into the spirit! Don’t forget to check out the Relay for Life of St. Mary Parish—Franklin Facebook page www.facebook.com/stmaryfranklin.
