Friends catching up with friends at the Chamber Tailgate Party held at the Pridgeon Center.

Tailgate party for the Lions roared

Franklin Chamber of Commerce along with SouthStar Bank, Atmos Energy, and Edward Jones, sponsored their annual tailgate party on Friday, September 1.

The event took place at the Pridgeon Community Center before the Franklin Lion’s first football game with Navasota. They served a meal of hamburgers and hot dogs with all the trimmings.

According to Betty Adams of the Chamber, the event was a great success. Families and friends came out to enjoy the meal and comradery.

Kids were playing and adults were visiting with each other, some they had not seen since last year at this annual event. Everyone was looking forward to the upcoming football season with great expectations from the Lions.

The Lions did not disappoint as they defeated the Rattlers in the last few seconds of the game. Wishing the Lions a winning season.
