On September 22nd the FCADC celebrated its 34th Annual Industry Appreciation Dinner.  After a two-year COVID induced hiatus, the event was back and bigger than ever.  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  a raucous Franklin County news report by WTFI Senior Anchor Rock Sterling and cub-reporter, Bosco.  As well as an entertaining episode of Franklin County Squares.  The FCADC’s very own spin on the iconic game show Hollywood Squares.  The special part of the evening included the presentations of the 2022 Large and Small Business of the Year Awards and the 2022 Zane A. Miller Award.

Small Business of the Year Award: Lehman Construction Services, Inc. 

Large Business of the Year Award: DL George and Sons, Inc.
