Mayor proclaims Friday and Saturday 'Tootsie Roll Days'

By AARON KENNEDY - akennedy@ftimes.com


Frankfort Mayor Chris McBarnes has signed a proclamation that today and tomorrow will be known as “Tootsie Roll Days” in recognition of the annual fundraiser led by the Knights of Columbus from St. Mary's Council in Frankfort.

The Knights of Columbus will hand out Tootsie Rolls and collect donations for the intellectually disabled. All proceeds from the Tootsie Roll Drive will be donated to Abilities Services Inc. and Special Olympics of Clinton County.

The Tootsie Roll Drive has been a national K of C fundraiser for more than 30 years, and the local council has conducted the Tootsie Roll Drive for over 20 years. In a press release sent to The Times by K of C Council No. 5294, the council stated that they appreciate the communities support and the opportunity to help people with intellectual disabilities.
