FM #1100 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 1100 in the series.
We talk about the Turkey Trot coming up on Thanksgiving morning.
We talk about how the race has evolved, sponsorship opportunities, the community event itself, and free raffle prizes in addition to awards by race age category & more.
Disclosure: during the conversation you will hear that I am happy to be a sponsor of this event, and that the recording is separately part of my overall public service effort for Franklin.News/Franklin Public Radio.
The recording runs about 25 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Erin and Jen.
