  March, 2007 Bargain Bazaar & Chili Feed

The March, 2007 Bargain Bazaar and Chili Feed was a huge success. At 6:30 am shoppers were staged at the front door.  The parking lot was full.  It was reminiscent of shopping the day after Thanksgiving.    The weather was cold but it didn't deter the shoppers excitement.   At 7 am the doors opened and the Franklin Community Center was flooded with shoppers.   Coffee and donuts were ready for the early birds.   Some bargain hunters came early and filled their car with new-found treasures then came back later to shop again and enjoy lunch.   Men of the community were available to help with carrying purchases out to the cars.   75 pounds of meat had been used to prepare the chili with serving to begin at 11.  By noon the first batch of chili was gone and another pot was being prepared.  FCCI is very grateful to Leroy and Ann Younger for their work in preparing the chili for the shoppers.  Everyone enjoyed the wide variety of merchandise and asked when the next sale would be held.    FCCI will be hosting another event on May 5 in conjuction with the Franklin and Arma citywide sales.   Many residents and friends of Franklin have already indicated they will be donating more merchandise for the sale.  All proceeds go toward the rebuilding of the community and everyone has been very generous in donating items to this very worthy cause.  Many items still new and with tags were available for sale.  
Many volunteers worked very hard for weeks in preparation for this event.  The community spirit is still alive and well in Franklin, Kansas.
