The annual Franklin Hospital Auxiliary Scholarship Dinner on April 2 raised money for health care scholarships for high school seniors in the Franklin Hospital District and for health care workers who are taking classes to further their careers. This year’s event, honoring the USO and the military, at Benton Civic Center featured a 1940s Big Band Swing Spectacular theme complete with supporters dressed in World War II era vintage inspired dresses and suits. The evening also included a 1940s-style dinner menu along with movie clips from the 1940s. Music was provided by the Southern Illinois Concert Band.
