Gregg McCoury takes in the donations at the annual Social Club get together.

Social club geared up for RCFA sale

The first of two Franklin Social Club meetings were held last past Saturday. Social club members met to discuss the upcoming Robertson County Youth Fair and learn of the results of the 2018 buyer’s group contributions.

The group raised $20,616.00 that is used to raise the lower end auction items and has done so for the past 29 years. In 2018, $16,616.00 was spent during the auction and the remainder was a $4,000 donation for RCFA Scholarships.

While the amount raised varies from year to year the club goal has remain the focus. Having recognized a need 29 years ago, the club concentrates the combined funds which are donated by club members, to starting most auction items at the youth fair. The idea was simple, make sure every child showing an animal had a buyer.
