Sheffield-Calahaln: What have you been doing during pandemic?
By Brenda Bailey
The Coronavirus has been gracing our existence now for a year. I was trying to decide how we could celebrate this “special” anniversary. I think it would be interesting to know how you’ve been coping since last March. If you’re willing to share, please forward your thoughts, good and bad, to me by the first day of March. Also, we need some uplifting news for this column. If you’ve had a birthday or other special event, or maybe just a funny story, please forward to me. I want this column to be your column, not mine.
Birthday wishes to: Chris Reeves on Feb. 19; Norman Spry and Mickey Gaither on Feb. 20; and Doug Holland and Roger Wooten on Feb. 23. If you would like a birthday or anniversary listed, please do not hesitate to contact me.
