GARDEN CLUB DISCUSSES
At a regular meeting of the
Franklin . Garden Club held on
Monday afternoon at the home of
Mrs. W; W. Sloan at "Sunnyside
Farm," Miss Florence Stalcup,
home demonstration agent for
Macon county, and Mrs. Fred
Slagle, a representative of the
home demonstration club of the
Carloogechaye community, brought
plans for a craft center that their
club hopes to form in Franklin.
With a room centrally located
in town and 'instructors in basketry,
coppeTwprk, weaving and all the
handcrafts brought by the demon
stration groups in the county, it
was hoped that such a center
could prove profitable in many
ways to the town as' well as to
the rural, women.
Possibilities of establishment lat
er' of the craft center in the plan-ued-for
community house, were dis
cussed. Many of the (dub members
expressed much interest and a de
sire to take advantage of the work,
which would be carried on in
much the same ' manner as the
schools that have been held in the
past at the shop ,of Mrs. Carl
Slagle on Cartoogechaye. In ad
dition, the school would be1 of
great tourist interest.
A report of a meeting with the
county commissioners concerning
plans for the community house
was given. Necessary steps con
forming with government regula
tions are being taken by interested
citizens and by the commissioners.
A full report will be given all
town 'organizations' through their
board of control members as soon
as further details have developed.
