FRANKLINVILLE — One Franklinville family rested easier over Christmas with a new furnace courtesy of Triad Heating & Cooling. Lily Barham won the heating system after her friends and family nominated her. The surprise was presented by Triad’s owner Eric Ward in a Publisher’s Clearinghouse-style front door presentation last Wednesday. “It makes me feel good that people care that much about me,” said Lily.
Each year Triad Heating & Cooling gives away a new furnace to a deserving Randolph County resident before Christmas. This year’s recipient is known in her community as someone who is always willing to help others in need.
