  2. Lorna Nichols you will surely be missed as the director. Your hard work and dedication to the Franklin County area has most definitely showed in your five years as Executive Director. The countless hours that you put into planning events, meetings, lunches/dinners, after business hours etc. has really helped to put our area on the map. So sad to see you go! Best of luck in your future endeavors!
