Epworth United Methodist Church hosted its annual Summer Festival on Saturday with plenty of homemade ice cream included.
The annual fundraiser for the church on Arno Road is a tradition that started back in 1942, longtime church member Sarah Lillard explained.
“People from Franklin just all came out, and it was a social event,” she said.
Lillard can remember helping out with the festival almost her entire life and has hosted the annual festival on her property, just up the road.
“Everybody comes together and works hard,” she said.
Event highlights included a silent auction, grilled chicken and hamburger plates.
