Announcing the 2nd Annual Macon Waves Ducky Derby!

We are at it again!  Announcing the SECOND Annual Macon Waves Ducky Derby.  This event will be held August 24th at Big Bear Park in Franklin.  We are hoping to reach and exceed our proceeds from last year's event.  Our goal is to continue the FYP Scholar Award scholarship fund for years to come and to continue to help support or local community.  There are plenty of opportunities for local individuals and local businesses to help get involved.  We are also partnering again with the NC Big Sweep and will be asking for volunteers to help with the river clean-up as well.  Please see any FYP member for details or to purchase your duck tickets!

Please help spread the word about this event.  If you are interested in donating, sponsoring a duck or flock of ducks, or if you would like to help volunteer please contact us at or talk to any FYP member in the community.  Hope to see you there!

Congratulations to the Winners of the FYP Scholar Award 2013

We would like to announce the winners of the FYP Scholar Award.  This is the first year we have offered this scholarship and we are very excited.  The requirements of the award were strictly merit based and we received a number of great applications, so the final decision was tough!  We have awarded one male and one female recipient, who will each be receiving $1,000 towards their college education.  Carrie Doster & Caledin Wylupek were this year's award recipients.  Our president, Mandy Lail presented the awards at the FHS Scholarship Night, which was held May 2, 2013.
