Thank you from Franklin County Friends of Legal Services

letter to editor

To the Editor:

            The Franklin County Friends of Legal Services group wants to thank everyone who contributed to the tremendous success of our 36th Annual Friends of Legal Services Book Sale in September.  The sale was our biggest ever, and all the proceeds will go to provide legal help in civil cases for low-income families and individuals in our area.

The local businesses and offices that served as donation sites, the thousands of people who donated books, and the volunteers who transported, sorted, priced, and sold them – all deserve our thanks and the thanks of the community.  We are particularly grateful to F&M Trust, the law firm of DiLoreto, Cosentino, and Bolinger, Kegerreis Outdoor Advertising, M&T Bank, Orrstown Bank, and Volvo Construction for sponsoring the sale.

Who We Are

The Franklin County Free Press, established by Vicky Taylor in 2019, emerged as a beacon of local journalism for the residents of Franklin County. Under Vicky's leadership, it quickly became an essential source of news, particularly at a time when major newspaper publications were increasingly overlooking local coverage.

On January 1, 2022, the torch was passed to Nathan Neil and his firm, Neil Publishing, LLC. Neil, a local entrepreneur with multiple thriving businesses in Chambersburg, shares Vicky's fervent commitment to both the community and the world of local journalism.

Rooted in the heart of Franklin County and powered by its residents, the Franklin County Free Press continues to bridge the gap, ensuring that the local stories, events, and issues that matter most to the community remain in the spotlight.
