High school graduation well-deserved milestone

Graduating from high school is quite an accomplishment, the culmination of 13 years of work in most cases. It's no wonder we continue to celebrate this milestone.

Saturday morning, the Class of 2015 for Franklin County High School, 518 strong, will receive their diplomas at C.I. Dillon Stadium-Fred M. Brown Memorial Field. They will be accompanied by many, many proud parents, grandparents, family and friends.

It is indeed a celebration, as each graduate should be very proud of what he has accomplished. Marching down the aisles to receive a high school diploma is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and it's one not to be taken lightly.

Bike ride great way to aid those in need

Anyone who wants to help feed the hungry, please sign up for the 26th annual World Hunger Auction Bike Ride, set for June 6 at 8 a.m. at Antioch Church of the Brethren in Callaway. It's a great way to have fun and help a cause at the same time.

For those who may be unfamiliar with the fundraiser, the World Hunger Auction and its other local events have raised more than $1 million over the past 30 years. That money is distributed through Heifer International, Roanoke Area Ministries, Heavenly Manna and Church of the Brethren Global Food Crisis Fund.

Last year, 37 local riders participated and raised more than $4,000. Thanks to the Franklin Freewheelers Bicycle Club, participation is growing, and that's certainly a step in the right direction.
