The Franklin Baptist Church is having its annual yard sale on Saturday, June 9, at the end of the Grist Mill Road in West Franklin, from 8-11 a.m. There are always plenty of good deals and treasures.

Donna Abbott and granddaughter “Princess” Reagan hosted a Royal Princess Tea recently. Those in attendance included the ladies from Donna’s Let’s Get Fit exercise class, whom Reagan has had the pleasure of knowing since she was a baby.

Being a royal tea, everyone wore tiaras, lace shawls and gloves, and Reagan, being the hosting princess, wore her Princess Elsa gown.

The menu included scones, mini quiche and petite pastries and lemonade and iced tea, which were served from Donna’s finest tea cups. This royally delightful afternoon was especially special given that Reagan announced her departure from the exercise group, as she will be moving on to school next year. It was certainly an afternoon of delight and memories for all in attendance.
