Terri Lindsey, and Happy Tails staff, volunteer their time throughout the year on a multitude of events through Marshall County such as March for Mutts, Paws for a Purpose, community food drives, Relay for Life, and numerous other events and activities.

When the floods hit our community, Chevron was there from the beginning by supporting clean up efforts, volunteering their time, and donating needed supplies. They have continued to support Marshall County throughout the recovery process, donating $10,000 focused on short and long term recovery of those affected by the flooding. The FRN is happy to partner with an organization that cares about the citizens of Marshall County and supports community efforts from the beginning to the end of a project. Thank you Lee Ann Wainwright and Chevron for your commitment to our county!
It's that time of year again! In preparation for the new school year, the FRN provided school readiness packs to the 16 Pre-K schools operating in Marshall County. The packs contained a variety of LeapFrog items, included Pre-K Skills, Math Readiness, Addition or Alphabet Flipbooks, Flashcards, Draw Erase White Boards, and other educational items. We wish all Marshall County Schools students and personnel a great 2017-2018 school year!
