The 2020 Industry Appreciation Dinner has been CANCELED due to COVID limits on inside gatherings of more than 250 people.  




On September 5th the FCADC celebrated its 33nd Annual Industry Appreciation Dinner.  The dinner is one of the most anticipated annual events in Franklin County.  The evening honors those employers…large and small…who make Franklin County’s economy prosper.

The event, which was attended by nearly 500 people was held at the Green Grove Gardens event center and featured the entertainment of the nationally recognized Capitol Steps, as well as a raucous Franklin County news report by WTFI Senior Anchor Rock Sterling and cub-reporter, Jacob Stein.  The special part of the evening included the presentations of the 2019 Large and Small Business of the Year Awards and the 2019 Zane A. Miller Award.
