FARMINGTON — Franklin County Retired Educators held their annual auction to fund school grant at its recent meeting. One $300 grant is awarded to a teacher in Franklin County each year. The grants rotate to school districts on a 4-year cycle.

This year’s grant will go to an applicant from the Jay schools and will be announced at the November meeting. The silent auction of food, crafts, and other items raised $548.25 this year.

The group also voted to send their annual $50 donation to each of the eight food pantries in Franklin County. This money comes from their treasury.

In November the FCRE will meet in the Foster Technical Center Cafe, 129 Seamon Road.

Auction chair Robin Bragg, center, distributes items to winning bidders.
