WEST FRANKFORT – The holiday’s may be over, but one Franklin County girl is already making plans for the next Christmas. For the past two-years, 10-year-old Lilyanne Cooksey has helped give presents to families in need. Lily was determined to earn her money, not have it given to her.

They say, grandma’s house is where memories are made.

“It’s pretty fun because it’s Grandma,” said Lily. The kitchen is where Lily spent most of her days leading up to Christmas.
