Saturday, June 1st--Child abuse can be prevented. Unfortunately you cannot watch the news without seeing another child become a victim of abuse or neglect. In response to the negative effects of child abuse, we must continue to provide awareness and focus efforts towards prevention within our Franklin community.
On Saturday, June 1st, the Franklin City Department of Social Services will hold its 3rd Annual No Excuse for Child Abuse Poker Run. Cost will be $20 per driver and $10 for rider, and each person registered will receive a pinwheel pin (the national symbol for child abuse prevention). There will also be a gathering with door prizes and a 50/50 raffle following the ride. Lunch will be served by Nixon's for $10/plate from 12-3pm. Fried chicken, BBQ, snaps, hushpuppies, slaw, drink.
Registration begins at 10:00, with the last bike out at 11:00am. Tournament will be from 12-2pm.
In case you are wondering what a poker run is... It is a fundraising motorcycle ride, but it is not limited to just motorcycle riders!
