Birthday wishes to Austin Ottone and Jo Frazier who will celebrate a birthday on Aug. 6.  Happy anniversary to Larry and Doris Dyson who will celebrate on Aug. 2.  If you would like a birthday or anniversary listed, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Lots of excitement in the Sheffield/Turkeyfoot area this past week.  You would have thought from the locals that Elvis was alive, but it was the reopening of Gunter’s Country Store.Tina Gunter and son, Devon Parks, opened the store with a grand opening for customers on July 15.  The community now has a place to get milk and bread, and also breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Gunter’s is open Monday-Friday from 6 a.m.-9 p.m., Saturdays 7 a.m.-9 p.m. and Sundays 10 a.m.-6 p.m. 2328 Sandy Springs Road. They have a grill menu and daily specials.  Call 704-546-7670.  We are happy to have them back serving our community and wish them much success.

Sheffield-Calahaln VFD meetings are held each Monday night at the station at 7.  If interested in becoming a volunteer, come to the meetings or see any member of the department.  We look forward to more community involvement.

Prayer requests continue for Bryan Swain, Jean Reavis, Lori Dyson, Johnny Naylor, Dot Keller, Pat Moore, Deborah Nichols, Sylvia Ratledge Williams, Wellman Beck, Hazel Smoot, Tim Keller, Junior Dunn, Betty Dameron, Tammy Keller, Naomi Wooten, Jeff Potts, Charles England, Greta England, Lincoln Dyson, Chester Reeves, Hazel Frye, Yvonne Ijames, Bonnie Gunter, Ed Livengood, Ted Adams, Jane Tutterow, Betty Beck, Bob Ellis, Caren Morgan, Melissa Spry, Wade Reeves, Helen Bulla, Joann Renegar, Rowan Fay, Paul Beck, Greg Gobble, Larry Dyson and Suzonne Stratton.
