Ed Moody and Dr. Craig Ferrell to be honored posthumously for lives of service, other awards announced that evening

You won’t want to miss the 2012 Franklin Tomorrow Shrimp Boil and Volunteer Awards, set for Saturday, July 13, at the Hughes Mill commons area at Berry Farms subdivision on Lewisburg Pike.

Our event will once again begin around 5:30 p.m., and include a fabulous low-country shrimp dinner, prepared this year by Cool Cafe. Thank you to Pinnacle Financial Partners, Williamson Medical Center, Berry Farms and Boyle Investment, Vanderbilt Health, and a host of other sponsors for their help in staging this event.

The highlight of the evening will be the presentation of the Anne T. Rutherford Exemplary Community Volunteer Award, as well as a series of Volunteer Spirit, Youth Initiative, and Lifetime Achievement Awards, which will honor the life of a community servant posthumously. This year, the late Dr. Craig Ferrell, nominated by BrightStone, and the late Mr. Ed Moody, nominated by the Franklin Noon Rotary, will be honored in this category. All those nominated in the other categories will be recognized that night and the recipients of the awards announced during the event.
