The Survival Center at the September 2011 Franklin County Fair


Clare Baker is the grandprize winner of the $500 jackpot!

Clare received her prize at the Franklin Area Survival Center early Monday morning (Sept. 9).  

Faith E. Rockwood, President of the Board of Directors, hands Clare her big prize.



A young boy kept coming back to our booth each day to take part in the whale game for children. 

Each child that came to our booth was able to pick a whale and was given a prize corresponding with the number on the bottom of the whale. 

We gave away hundreds of planes, slinkies and bubbles!

A woman stops by the booth to buy a raffle ticket from Fern Kolakoski (Board Treasurer) and Sonnya Peters (Board Vice President).
